I think Olives is the place to see & be seen. Ideal for ladies who lunch. Food is good also. Lovely brown break. Had scrambled eggs & bacon . Eggs could have been better. Bacon good back. Had soup there a couple of times and it's excellent Their cakes good also and there is an outdoor covered area for smokers.... More

Decided to have the toasted home cooked ham with cheddar sandwich. Got shiny processed ham and Easy singles. Paid top dollar. Very disappointed. Will not be back.

This is a very busy & popular spot. 2 adults & 1 child. 3 sambos & drinks. Seating is an issue at busy times but only due to its popularity. Very friendly staff who are always on the go. Food is outstanding 99% of the time but I don't think you'll get much better anywhere. And after years of coming... More

I have been here many times to buy items in the deli to take away, and their food is great. They do lots of gluten free things and their salads are fantastic. The best thing about Olive is the coffee and scones which are served warm with homemade jam and cream. Their prices are average and the staff are nice.... More

Gorgeous food. A little tight for space inside but in the Summer, sitting outside is a treat. Children's menu available. Service is mediocre.

Visited here today Thursday 26 May for a relaxing coffee and cake. What a disaster. Just started my coffee when a tradesman arrived to carry out work on the entrance door. A noisy drill or saw commenced leaving only one option. Leave or endure the noise. I took the second option. I called back the Manager his response was that... More

Dear PJD I was made aware of this incident on the day it happened and hands up, we messed up on this occasion. We should have stopped the carpenter who was fixing the door from commencing his work until you, the last customer had left, no matter how long you wished to stay. I don't think any explanation or apology... More

Lively and busy most weekend morning, easy to see why, great staff, super food and a really good atmosphere. Despite being busy, staff never rush you and always take the time to check if you are ok and need anything further. Highly recommended.

Love the food and ambience of olive. Great variety of breakfast and lunch menu. The porridge with raisins and cinnamon are to die for. Great coffee and fresh made products. Outside seating is best as it gets very busy inside. Sadly they are a victim of their own success. More often than not I've had to go elsewhere as they... More
