Olive is our go-to spot for latte's and pastries, casual take out dinner (duck salad is my favorite!) or just to relax and have a glass of wine. The staff is always friendly, the pastries, bread and food always fresh and has a wine country flair. Right downtown and easy to find. Worth the visit! You'll come back.

Great soups, salads, sandwiches and more. Perfect for after wine tasting! And then add a dessert for icing on the cake! I will go here every time!

We ate the seared scallop salad & it is delicious and light or perfect for dinner after a hot day touring wineries. The restaurant and rest rooms don't appear very clean; yet the food is delicious and the wait staff friendly and efficient.

This is not a fancy sit down gourmet restaurant. You place your order at the counter and seat yourself. But it is good food, simply and creatively prepared. The sort of place that has enough variety that you could go there every day for lunch, or where you can go for a nice dinner on the way to a movie... More

I enjoyed and turkey plate and a gluten free cookie was from heaven. My wife had chicken salad sandwich and raspberry chocolate cake that was to die for. All this with a... More

Each time I have eaten at Olive, the food has been delicious. The service is to order at the counter and be given an identifying number card and have your meal brought to you. The service has been slightly sporadic, but if I have said so, I have been given an apology and a free dessert cookie. The food is... More

If in search of a relaxed environment to enjoy a glass of wine, listen to live music, dine, or just people watch, Olive may be the best place in downtown Walla Walla. The atmosphere is great and selection of wine and food is well thought out.
