This place has a little of everything--pasta, sandwiches, soup, fruit, desserts, entrees, and more. It's perfect for a group with varied interests. Decent prices. Good ice cream in little boxes.

Our small group tried a variety of salads and sandwiches, all of which were tasty and reasonably priced for Princeton. Lunches and drinks were just under $10 a person. There was only one table which someone in line had grabbed for themselves by tossing down three backpacks. The lack of a place to eat inside on rainy, cold, or hot... More

Olives is always great! Their selection of Greek, Italian, and other Mediterranean cuisines is always fresh and delicious. They always have a bunch of salads to choose from, and their pick three salads option gets the job done nicely, especially as a vegetarian! Their sandwiches are great, too, and made fresh right in front of you. I will always come... More

I went traditional - the gyro sandwich, spanikopita - really delicious and large portions - enough to share or save for dinner. The dessert variety and quality is a big surprise - almost irresistible. You don't want to plan to eat here - there is a counter to eat at - just take your food down by the library -... More

Fresh, innovative menu Vegan and GF friendly. Great terrace dining. Limited inside dining. Near main drag but a bit away from the bustle.

Since I was helping with my first grandchild, the adults agreed to spend as little time as possible cooking. We were able to walk to Olive's any time of the day and come back with excellent food at reasonable prices.

If there's only one request that's allowed for them, I would say to have more seating. I understand that they specifically say 'catering and takeout' food market, but being in Princeton and to have so many out of towners (staters, in our case) for college visit who don't actually stay in Princeton, it will so so helpful to provide more...
