Great food and friendly staff!

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!

If you are looking for a simple cramped deli then you are in for a surprise- however I have been hoing there when it was just that! Salads, sandwiches, fresh grilled food made to order. Outstanding mozzarella sandwiches for a quick on the go. Good staff - you won't be disappointed- avoid rush time!

Fabulous selection of salads, pastas, sandwiches and desserts just a hop, skip and a jump from Nassau Inn.

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.

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
