“Quirky and delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

We often pop in for brunch after church on a Sunday morning. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.
There is a good range of different items on the menu. The vegetarian breakfast and the meatball flatbread are two of my favourites. My daughter usually requests one of the delicious chocolate brownies to take home.
The outdoor seating area is pretty on a sunny day. If you prefer a shady seat you can sit inside and enjoy the breeze as the whole back wall of the premises is glass, which folds back.
I urge anyone looking for somewhere quirky with a good choice of freshly made food to come to Oliver's Pantry

“Quirky individual independent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Oliver's Pantry is a delight! I used to go to Nero's but no more! Oliver's is very friendly and the
food is different and wonderful.
Lots for vegetarians and the coffee IS the best in Ripon. And they do soya milk alternatives.
Also they have a loyalty card.
I love Oliver's Pantry - it's individually owned and you can tell by how much care the staff put into everything.

“Quirky and delightful.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

I regularly meet friends for coffee and cake at Oliver's Pantry. They've got it just right. Lovely welcoming staff, original, quirky, appealing and cosy decor, a good ambiance, great coffee and yummy food.
The outside area is delightful too. Service sometimes a wee bit slow but that's because it's popular and attractive. The staff do their best to serve you without much delay even when they are busy. We love it.

“First, but most definitely not the last visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013 via mobile

Visited this charming little cafe today for the first time after hearing loads of great things about it.
It's right up my street for sure, shabby chic, mismatched furniture and crockery and distressed furniture and bunting galore. I was in heaven!

We were seated promptly and a high chair was brought straight over for my baby. Order was taken swiftly and everything arrived in a reasonable time exactly as we ordered it. We got 2 pots of tea (loose leaf) in charming little pots, served with a vintage china cup & saucer and a mini old fashioned milk jug. So cute. I ordered pancakes and asked specifically for no honey as it was listed on the menu - this was noted (and also deducted a small amount from the bill) and my mum had a freshly baked fruit scone with jam & cream. Absolutely delicious.
The menu is varied with plenty of choice and I can't wait to visit again to try something else. The bill came to £11 which I thought was pretty reasonable.
The toilet facilities were also top notch; clean and stylish with some funky music playing whilst you pee. Perfect! 5*
