Food is delicious and fresh. Customer service is really superior. From the people who answer the telephone- especially Katerina- to those who work behind the counter, this place is tops. You could eat there every day and never be bored or disappointed. It's the best...More

You can get everything at olives. They have everything you need for your lunch and desert needs. I love their salads and sandwiches. The BBQ chicken salad with KALE is AMAZING. I could eat that salad everyday.

Princeton is not a cheap eating town. So finding a reasonably priced lunch can be a challenge. Enter Olive's! This shop makes some of the tastiest, healthiest food I've eaten in Princeton and the variety is impressive. Mains, salads, sandwiches, soups, lovely bread and desserts...More
