“Lovely Salad”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

I'm gluten intolerant so was dubious about going to an artisan bakery for lunch. However Olaf's had some great salads and I am still thinking about them several days later. My friend enjoyed her gluten full buy and overall it was a nice atmosphere.

“Disjointed service but overall a lovely experience...”
Reviewed March 15, 2013 via mobile

Was unsure what to expect, appeared to be somewhere that you could take only well behaved children, however that isnt necessarily a bad thing.
Found a table for three easily, ordered at the counter and the displays looked divine however it was fairly packed and the food delivery came out bit by bit. Was given my raspberry tart which sat there for fifteen minutes before my coffee came. Waited another 10 minutes for my soup which coincidentally still came before the croissant and spreads that was ordered by another at our table. Seemed a tad disorganised but maybe they were having an off day.

Otherwise though, the waiters and waitresses were friendly and polite. The food made it well worth the visit, everything that was brought to the table was well presented and did not dissapoint. Strongly advise going there if in Mt. Eden.

“Bread in Mt Eden”
Reviewed January 26, 2013

Considering the bread offer in Mt Eden, Olaf's is outwinning any. The Essential Deli close by is selling lovely baguettes though. However breads are definitely too thick to my liking. The baguette 'looks' awesome but is not yet...too rich and thick a dough. Other fruit and nut breads do better. Staff are busy but welcoming. I've just bought bread there so won't rate the café side. I'm a local...and French!

“Olafs make the best Strawberry tarts EVER!!!!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Been here a few times as it is our local. The food is great, the atmosphere is lovely and relaxing for a bustling central city suburb. Hubby is fussy over his short blacks... He always has 2nds here so that's a great compliment. The food is delicious.... Especially the strawberry tarts.... WOW!!!!!
