Good food

A little small but nice, friendly and warm. The coffee and food is good and all made in house. Staff are friendly and helpful. If you like a nice coffee or a homemade snack, this is the place to go.

Always guaranteed excellent food. It's an oasis of warmth, cosiness and great food. Lots of outdoor space too to enjoy the summer sun.

We were in Skerries for about 24 hours and walked down to Olive from our Guesthouse to grab a bite for breakfast before heading to the airport. Nice little deli/café. Girls were friendly and food and coffee were good. We sat inside as it was a little nippy out that morning, but outside seating looked nice. Inside was cozy and... More

This little deli is a hub of activity, a testament to the food. Sunny Friday lunch hour and the little terrace is packed as is the "bar style" interior. The queue for food is non stop.Wraps, soups, salads, tarts and more are dished out with a smile. All coffee drinkers are catered for. It's a must after a walk on... More

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
