A real neighbourhood café. Think of Café Nervosa from Frasier but with more character. We had coffee, tea, bagels and toast for breakfast and all of the delicious with one small quibble. Why is it so difficult to get golden brown toast in Ireland? Ours was a pale imitation of the real thing. Café Olive is far from being alone... More

Victim of its own success, Olive café is too often busy and it's hard to find a seat. The food is good but a bit expensive. The staff is always patient and friendly. Olive Deli offers a range of Italian food and sourdough bread but too often the staff seem to be in a bad humor.

My mother and I stopped in here for a snack after a long ride from Dublin. Food is very reasonably priced as well as delicious. I really enjoyed my ham and blue cheese panini pictured here. I Would definitely stop in here again if I ever return to Skerries.

We were in Skerries a few Sunday's ago and fancied a coffee, it was raining and we spotted Olive Cafe and parking directly outside. It a lovely cafe with plenty of seating inside and in a covered outside area. It's well staffed and offers good service. The food and pastries are excellent but a tad on the expensive side. My...

Went in to buy a take away coffee and some fresh bread. The bread looked beautiful but wasn't genuine sourdough no holes inside or sourdough taste. Coffee was lovely. Although there was a lady serving and she wasn't good humor

This place is a must for a great cup of coffee, amazing scones and wonderful fresh bread in the deli. And not too prices either😄. It's a buzzing hub of activity, well worth a visit if you're that way. You can then go for a lovely walk along the headlands to work off the delicious scones they have.

Popped in for a coffee and a small treat for myself - lively, happy, friendly and good staff - fresh food and strong coffee. Would find it hard to criticise - menu isn't that cheap but then again fresh food is worth that little bit more expense.

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
