A lot of lycra on the weekend as it is a popular spot for cyclists .. but I usually pop in with friends for coffee and find that mid-week morning / afternoon time is a little less frenetic. I always have a toasted chelsea bun - I can't help myself and they take me back to my school tuckshop days... More

My optician is next door to Olivia's and accommodates smokers, so it's a very convenient place to meet the daughters who smoke... it's great when your fellow diners don't have to interrupt a long brunch to go and smoke somewhere else. I've only ever been on a Sat morning so it's always buzzing. Their bakery does a roaring trade and... More

For Banting and Keto dieters ... the best place for breakfast. Divine omelette with bacon and Mozarella and of course the Bullet Proof Coffee to die for. Love this place immensely... XxxX

The menu is extensive and there is something for everyone's tastes. Whether its a quick cup of coffee, lazy morning brunch or a festive lunch, there is nowhere else Id rather... More

We bought a milk tart for tea later in the afternoon and it was one of... More

Olivia's offer baked goods that you can buy as well as a fairly extensive menu that includes breakfast, lunch and more. Choose to either sit inside or outside on the pavement under umbrellas and experience the bustle of the area. Serving portions are more than sufficient. I had scones and coffee - a good combination for afternoon tea. Service is... More
