Only two minutes from the Princeton campus, Olives Deli & Bakery serves as a marvelous option for to-go cuisine. Olives offers a wide selection of relatively healthy and relatively cheap food (the best of both worlds!), as well as a heavenly assortment of desserts. When our family went to lunch there, they had a special combo of three salads for... More

Not a great place to try to eat-in, but the perfect place to grab something for a picnic. Some unique and tasty sandwiches, plus salads, etc. Beverages are expensive and rather limited in selection, but the food is hard to beat for take-away.

For my farewell back to India, my colleagues took me here. Initially I was skeptical, as I do not find Italian food that great. All ordered different dishes, and I tried Pasta. The serving is too much for a single person to have. The server was very friendly and helped in selecting dishes. We could call the waitress or order... More

Grabbed lunch here and ate on a bench by the library. It was 12:30, on a Friday and the place was hopping. Lots of options. Refrigerated case for some ready made items, as well as a few counters. There was a longer line for the hot dishes. The salad and sandwich counter had no line. My friend and I got... More

Olives' salad are delicious and healthy! They use different ingredients and seasoning to make one of the best salad ever. But you can find too fresh homemade foods like stuffed Chicken Breast, italian Roast Pork Loin, Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese. Finaly, They are so nice and friendly! Olives works with catering and takeout food.

This is a small little Mediterranean flavored deli/shop off Nassau St (the main public st along the university). It serves all sorts of fresh baked goods and sandwiches as well as coolers of grab and go items. They had quite a menu of items they would make but I opted for a cup of mixed fruit from their grab &... More
