We popped into The Olive just before afternoon closing but we were offered a toastie -which was lovely-not rushed-and excellent coffee. The next day we went for breakfast and were greeted with the sweet sweet smell of coffee and frying bacon-and just had to have the omelette/tomato/bacon and cheese-what's not to drool over!

Nothing exceptional but good choice of food for light lunches. Plenty of outside seating - or inside. Would recommend for a light lunch.

The service was good as was the coffee. The restaurant and rest rooms were VERY clean. All the food is home made and it is every day.

Another popular place for friends and business associates to catch up. Great coffee and cake and a killer BLT on Turkish bread.

Popular cafe had the best blueberry smoothies in town. We were in a group of ten and had no problems moving tables to accommodate us. Only negative is it tends to fill up quick

The food was very good but the service was too slow. We ate lunch there and went back the next day for a sandwich to take away but had to wait too long.

Good seating, in and out. Fast, friendly service. Good food and drinks. Quite a busy place so you may need to wait for a table.
