“Best café in Ripon! Everything's home made!”
Reviewed January 22, 2014

I've dined here twice over the past month or so and have been impressed both times. On my first visit I had the pulled pork BBQ sandwich which is not on the menu but apparently is on offer periodically as a special. Now, let me start by saying I am a Yank from the American south and I know BBQ. Well, this sandwich was absolutely amazing. Better than most BBQ I've had in North Carolina, Georgia and Alabama. The meat was tender and moist, and the accompanying BBQ sauce must have been homemade it was so good. I can't believe anyone outside of the US can do up BBQ this good! Guy Fieri should visit and do one of his shows at Oliver's! My second visit was for breakfast, and being one who takes the first meal of the day seriously, I opted for Oliver's Full Breakfast. The meal, consisting of sausage, bacon, egg, tomato, mushroom and toast was delivered promptly and presented nicely on the plate. For both of my visits the service was 5-star, very friendly and welcoming. Hint - sign up for the loyalty card because you WILL return to this lovely establishment.

The coffee and rocky road were up to Oliver's usual high standards and served with a smile. Great atmosphere, we're frequent visitors!

“Brilliant cafe!”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Me and my partner live in ripon and have used Oliver's cafe a lot since it has opened. It is one of the better cafés in ripon. Great selection of tasty cakes, sweets and scones. The absolute best place to be on a sunny day, the sun trap at the back is amazing. Good prices and good service. Wonderful cafe!
