We had coffee and cake here a few times during our stay. Food and coffee are reasonably priced, tasty and pretty good value for Norfolk. The Cafe is well supported by both locals and visitors. At peak times it can be hard to get a table but there is always the option of takeaway.

Visited for breakfast and lunch to try food. Quite ok. Staff could smile a little more and not act like everything is a trouble (some were friendly). Sorry I preferred to breakfast elsewhere as we were there 10 days.

A very popular cafe well situated in the center of town. It is well presented with seating indoors and outdoors. The food is tasty, the hot chocolate good but the coffee lacks consistency.

The Olive Cafe was wonderful. Atmosphere, food, coffee and staff were all fantastic. I would highly recommend going for coffee, breakfast or lunch. The prices weren't expensive and you could sit inside outside under an umbrella or on the veranda. I loved the place.

We went to this cafe everyday we were on Norfolk Island. Coffee was consistently good and by far the best we had whilst here. Had lunch as well which was really nice and several sampling of the slices and scones. All were yummy. My pick of the cafes by far 😊
