Olive is a very nice cafe to relax for a coffee and scone/pastry on a nice warm morning or afternoon and people watch. It is mainly outdoor and covered with a good selection of pasteries/scones and also does nice warm snacks.

Based on tripadvisor reviews I was expecting a quality lunch, unfortunately my experience left me wondering if Skerries has a case of the Emperor's New Clothes? The café was full, its a pretty little place, nice wall tiles and counter and a cosy atmosphere. The very short lunch menu (made even shorter by one of the listed specials being washed... More

Thank you for your constructive criticism. As a business, we value your opinion greatly and we are always learning and trying to improve. Our daily special hot roll is usually a pork neck or other joint of meat slow cooked overnight and sometimes on busy days, we have noticed it is beginning to sell out too early and this leads...

I feel it's time to write about Olive again, as the last time it was just a restaurant, now it has added a deli. Outside the front was packed, inside was packed and the smoking area was the same, why? Well, because it is simply the best. Oh! Yes it may be a little untidy at times because they are... More

Amazing coffee and fab food; they have opened a Deli next door that not only looks amazing but sells fantastic produce. It always has a wonderful atmosphere and the staff are warm and helpful. Without doubt it sells the best coffee in Skerries. I love going down on a Saturday or Sunday morning - their breakfast menu is delicious.

Had heard rave reviews so popped by for lunch with a friend. Very disappointed. At 12.30 in the day the floor was a mess, one of the three "specials" was already off and the seating was cramped to say the least. On a positive,service was good as was the coffee. However food was unimaginative and very small portions. Worst of... More

Very central, really in the thick of it all, very continental and trendy, but it can be crowded to the point of discomfort but the coffee is excellent and most people love it.

A really busy cafe, that you can sit outside at anytime of the year with the blankets and heaters. Although there was a big queue, we were served quickly and the coffee arrived in a matter of minutes ! The only thing I would say is that the lunch menu should be given out, as I didn't realise all the... More
