In my book, Goodbye Fatness, Hello Gorgeous, I teach people how to overcome healthy eating obstacles. One of these obstacles is the restaurant that does not serve food that supports such a healthy eating lifestyle. I lost 125 pounds and do not wish to gain it back! Olive's makes eating out easy. They have something for everyone so I can... More

The food is fresh and delicious. We've eaten breakfast and lunch here several times since moving into the area about a month ago. We will go again and again until we've tried everything and then go back some more. There is not much of a seating area. We've eaten at the counter and didn't mind that but we've noticed that...

We order from Olives often for work lunches and it is a high quality, consistent experience. They will deliver in the Princeton area for relatively low order size, so we often plan ahead and have Olives cater our company meetings. I would recommend this to any size company in the area.

We had a dinner party and ordered the Lemon chicken and Spanakopita Phyllo Triangles, I just prepared a salad, it was so easy for me and everybody loved the food, it was so tasty. The service came on time and ready to serve!

Olives is one of the best delis I've ever been in. The place has recently expanded to accommodate the large numbers of people who visit daly. Salads, hot entrees, breads, custom sandwiches, and much more are all wonderful. I recommend their famous chicken salad (have it in a sandwich). Take out only - so plan to find a bench at... More

This is the little deli that grew. It does have places to eat in the back, but you are better off getting your order and going to sit somewhere in the square. Princeton is a lovely little town. The food has a definite Greek tone. The stuffed grape leaves and spanakopita are wonderful and we have ordered their Greek appetizers... More

Olives is a great little deli which offers a variety of different lunch options. I highly recommend their sandwiches, in particular the 'Mambo Italiano'. The food is high quality but quite pricey.

Just yesterday recommended it to a friend who's travelling to Princeton. It's pretty close to Princeton Central Library for those who are snowed under with research there ;)
