Went here for breakfast and lunch (different days). Great friendly service, food was great. If the locals eat there, always a good sign! Tea and coffee made to your taste.

loved this coffee shop, so much to choose from on the menu from a quick bite to a lovely main meal. Lovely to sit indoors or out and in the heart of town.

My husband and I had breakfast at The Olive a couple of times during our stay at Norfolk Island. The meals were always nice. We did note that you just sat back and relaxed as it did take a little while for the meals to come. That didn't bother us as we were in 'holiday mode' anyway and it was... More

Although the service was at times slow the variety and quality of food here was fantastic and could not be faulted and it seems to be a place that the locals frequent as well.It had a great friendly atmosphere with a variety of dishes that were affordable considering how much groceries cost. As someone who drinks soy milk I find... More

The corn fritters were certainly filling, but quite ordinary. Not quite corny enough! More like a thick pancake with corn. I think I picked the wrong meal as other writers have had better experiences. Perhaps try something else if you go.

My favourite place to sit with a tea or coffee with very yummy cakes and snacks. The service is great with a friendly smile. It is lovely to sit outside in the fresh air and dine alfresco.

We had scrumptious breakfast meals alfresco, enjoying the perfect Norfolk climate. One meal was French toast piled high with bacon, blueberries, strawberries, bananas, whipped cream and maple syrup. The other was a cheese, tomato and bacon omelette with toast. Including a juice and coffee, it came to $38.80. The place is always busy and open early for breakfast. Lunch and... More

Only had coffee here but it is obviously a very popular place as it was very busy but the coffee was lovely.
