We have never been to Walla Walla before and were referred to this Cafe based on a recommendation from our Hotel followed by a brief look here and based on the reviews we thought it was a safe bet. To start, it looks lovely on the outside when you first drive up. When we walked inside it also did not... More

If you're in downtown Walla Walla, plan on having lunch here. Nice selections to choose from. I had a special scallop salad and it was one of the best ever. An okay wine selection. The desserts looked magnificent, but we were full, so didn't order any. I definitely will go back here to try more Items the next time I'm... More

Had dinner on Friday night and it was different in that you order and then they bring it to your table. I had the beef enchiladas and they were delicious. Other people said the food they had was excellent. Local wine was available at reasonable prices. Good value restaurant.

We had a nice dinner at Olive Market Place and Cafe while in Walla Walla on a Sunday night, when few restaurants were open. The restaurant was quite busy and the service was very slow. Just waiting to order our food took a while. When our food did arrive, everything was very good. We had an excellent white Gazpacho soup... More

Love their hummus plate. A nice little local wine selection. Fun outdoor and indoor seating. Beautiful cheeses and meats. One of my favorite places to eat in Walla Walla.

An ideal place to stop for lunch in down town Walla Walla. It has a cheerful feel about it with well spread out seating inside as well as for sitting outside. A cafe that serves the excellent local wine the region is famous for. Service is good. Their pizzas are really excellent. I would highly recommend this cafe for anyone... More

We were in the middle of a downtown wine tasting afternoon and Olive was recommended to us for lunch. We ordered at the counter and sat outside on a warm Friday afternoon. Our food came pretty quickly. We had a prosciutto pizza and some lamb pasta. The food was good and it was a nice stop on our wine walk.... More

The service is slow but the servers are very polite and do not flaunt their egos as happens all too often these days. The food is of good quality, healthy, but not exceptional. The ambiance is very nice---has a European flair and feel. BUT the music is played too loudly inside the cafe and one has to sit outside to... More

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.
