Tasty Lunch

I went for lunch with a friend whilst staying in Skerries. It is a very busy and obviously popular restaurant - especially with the yummy mummy set! We ordered paninis and a glass of wine and were impressed with the food when it arrived. The presentation was also very good. The service was good... read more

Great place for a quick lunch sandwich/panini. They don't serve a complete menu but if you looking for a sandwich and a coffee no place does it better then olives in skerries.

This is an absolutely fantastic cafe. We visited off the back of the other trip adviser reviews and were not disappointed. The food was great - we had delicious salads and sandwiches. The staff were lovely - really chatty and helpful and great with our six year old daughter. They were especially good when we had to check out the... More

while driving through the village of Skerries, I saw a nice terrace and stopped for a cappuccino. Definitely worth it. Good coffee, great atmosphere. Will go back and try something from their breakfast or lunch menu.

I have been here so many times that I have tried pretty much everything on the menu and I haven't got a single complaint. Food is amazing and staff are lovely. Great in any weather but particularly nice on a sunny day when you can eat outside!

Delicious food and always a great buzz and atmosphere. The smoothies are great and the sandwiches are always really fresh. Especially lovely in the nice weather when you can sit outside.

Five of us went here for lunch last Sunday. A beautiful day and we were lucky to find a table in the yard at the back.. It was in the sun and there was no wind. We had to order inside and the food was brought out. The cheese and ham platter for two was a good size and very... More

Beautiful French feel to this place, the food is top notch nosh, the coffee is on the mark, the staff are very friendly, and know what they're doing, but the real gem is their kale superfood juice!

Lovely place. The parma panini was delicious, and I think it was good value for money. The decoration was very pretty. Nice place for a coffee if the weather is good. The waitress was very nice too. If you go to Skerries, go to this place!
