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 ;)

Their falafel wrap can’t be beat – I don’t even like yogurt but I love the greek tzatziki sauce they include in this sandwich of falafel, onion, tomato, and shredded lettuce on a warm, puffy wrap! I think they make those at the restaurant but I am not sure. Another good lunch favorite is their turkey sandwich on a brioche... More

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
