Have to say, have returned on two occasions to this wonderful cafe. Ordered the same scrambled egg and portion was so ample, I couldn't quite finish, (but my dog did, who they kindly tolerate on the seating outdoors.) Next time was a few weeks later and my friend and I shared a platter of cured meats, crackers, cheeses,olives and toasted... More

I was so looking forward to my next visit to Olives with daughter and friends. Ordered breakfast of scrambled eggs, toastie and coffees which came to €20! For two. The portion of scrambled eggs wouldn't have filled a baby and the filling and quality of bread in toastie left a lot to be desired. I was so disappointed as had... More

Have been here a few times now, the first time what I got was actually very good. But every time I've visited here since I have been less than impressed, food was very ordinary and came on plate with no garnish what's so ever which not great. Sandwiches are pricey enough just to be handed a sandwich on a plate... More

The food is of a very high quality, great range of organic and vegetarian options! The coffee is very good, all round I have never had a bad experience! I personally love the place,... More

Olive Skerries is a must for anyone visiting or living in Skerries. The food is incredible and the staff are lovely; the choice of artisan food amazing. It's just a shame I live so far away. Can't wait for my next visit!

We called in here for a sandwich and a coffee. While the coffee was good and hot the food was underwhelming. We ordered panini, that was all you got,just a panini plonked on a plate, no garnish/salad etc. At €6 it's not much to ask for. Disappointing after reading the reviews.

Often visit when i'm in Skerries. Wonderful. I recently had the falafel, which was delicious. There is plenty of vegetarian options. Also of note, Olive seem to have recently become more competitive with there prices, with deals and specials on. The menu seems to have a great amount on it recently also, which will definitely keep people coming back for... More

Stopped in during a cycle having seen recent good reviews. Coffee, smoothie and scones were all very good. Staff were excellent. The terrace seating out front was fantastic in good weather. Hope to return to sample lunch.
