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.

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.
