Fresh and great tasting food, great service

I work in Princeton and Olives is definitely the go to place for me. They have a variety of foods, made fresh every day and the taste is really good. The staff is friendly and efficient. Even at rush hour when it gets really crowded, they get the line moving so there is never a long wait. If... read more

We loved this busy take away restaurant in the city center. My daughter and I ordered salads to go and ate them on a bench nearby. The break salad platter was excellent and it comes with your choice of a few prepared salads in the salad case. I loved the asian slaw and the potato salad. The hummus was also... More

My whole family loves Olives-even my two VERY picky children! There is such a great variety of food here, that we don't even care about the fact that there are maybe 6 chairs in the entire place :-) If you need to host a party and want delicious, high quality food and a very reasonable price, I recommend Olives.They are...

The cury chicken salad is my favorite. Essentially for take out. a couple of bar seats in the back. In warm weather you can sit in Hinds Plaza in front of the library.

This place is on a side street in Princeton. Bring quarters for the meter. Inside I think there are only a few bar stools They have different types of food all the time along with soups, sandwiches cold and hot prepared. Breads and desserts.

This is a very good take out deli in Princeton but to call is a deli is misleading. It have a very varied menu with very healthy choices that change daily. Excellent Spanakopita if you would like to eat light. Also full dinners with vegetables and rice. Love taking food to the Piazza at the Princeton Public Library on a... More

They have such a wonderful selection of fresh looking take-out food in this deli that it’s difficult to decide what to order. Wish the place was larger and had a sit down section so you could enjoy seeing and smelling all the goodies this deli offers.

From the sandwiches to the prepared meals, the food at Olives is delicious and fresh. The staff is predictably kind and helpful, and our catering experience was also excellent. If you have a sweet tooth, don't miss the rocky road brownie and the pecan bar.

I just stopped in for a gyro, and I am finding very well worth the $7 price tag. It is absolutely delicious, and I'd certainly recommend it.

I had the Middle Eastern platter when I visited Olives. The people here were very warm and friendly. The service was prompt. The hummus in the platter was amazing!
