“Good food friendly service”
Reviewed August 15, 2013

A lovely quaint place serving home made food situated a short way up the hill from the harbour wall . Yes it is small but this adds to the appeal. We had a cream tea which was a delight, not your bought in standadised shape and size scone but a homemade one with texture and flavour. The pot of tea was also very tasty. Good friendly service from a good old traditional English tea shop. Recommended.

“Quaint little place”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Visited Olives on our last day, nice little cafe, had a cream tea which wasn't the best, there was just one huge dry scone, would have preferred two smaller ones and maybe warmed, otherwise the menu and other food looked good.

“You'll love it!”
Reviewed August 12, 2013

Lovely choice of meals, snack and cakes. Worth finding it out, as it's away from the busy main streets, only a short walk away.
