“Excellent food at reasonable prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I went here with my wife, son and two grandkids. One of my grandkids liked it so much we went back for lunch our second day in town.

It is very informal in that you seat yourself and order at the counter. Selections include pizza, several sandwiches, some starters and a few entrees.

The pizza we had second visit was only okay-pepperoni. The chicken noodle in pesto was very good and the braised beef enchilada was fantastic. The grandkids enjoyed their kids meal noodle in pesto sauce.

Service is fine. It was a little crowded both visits and it isn't a place for a quiet meal but the food and price were great.

“perfect pause in the middle of a busy day”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

We have had several great lunches in Walla Walla at the Olive. Food is always fresh, interesting presentation, flavorful and served quickly. Good value, interesting selection (from pizza and club sandwiches to foie gras and couscous)

“A weird mix of casual and fancy.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 20, 2014

The atmosphere is fun. A weird mix of seat yourself and then order some Foie gras. It would be great to come with a group of friends for some wine and apps. My husband had the duck salad which he was very impressed with, and I had the turkey club which was ok. They tried too hard to make it "fancy", and it fell below par. The dessert case looked amazing, and there was a great variety of wine.

“Excellent Cafe / Marketplace”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2013

Food was delicious, ambiance fitting a cafe where you order at the counter and the food is brought to you. We loved the tamales. Pizza was great as well. Definitely buy Richartz Kids Eggs (that is to take home). And they are open during times when other places are not!

“Charming Mediteranean cafe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

The special of the day was a wonderful homemade mozzarella, pesto and tomatoe pizza. It was yummy. We started with an apricot grape chicken salad that I would definitely return again to enjoy! Service was good. We had to wait in line at the cash register ( that is the cafe way) for a bit, but our food came quickly and the staff was very friendly.
