We stopped in the cafe/store and had breakfast. My friend and I both had the Florentine Frittata Benedict and coffe. The frittata was pretty good. The Rosemary Focaccia bread base was really good. I could've eaten it alone. Great coffee.
We decided to pay the $5 & take the Olive Oil 101 class. Well worth the money. I now know everything I need to know about how olive oil is made.
Went back to the store & got 2 boxes of Olive Oil cupcakes (every flavor). This was, by far, the best part of the visit. YUM!
We are planning a trip back in Nov when they will be harvesting the olives. They say you can watch the process while it's happening.
All-in-all, a really good morning and worth the drive to get there.

It bothers me greatly to inform anyone of this place mainly because it is so good and I have to share. If you go in the winter EXPECT it to be very busy; summer visits are just about right. Food is very very good; I suggest the bundt cake as well with their coffee.
look for speals I had the pulled pork and that was very good.

They are expanding so growth means good things to come....
sometimes if you are lucky there is a famers market available in season. Check their web site for wine tasting events and specials. The have tours and a great gift shop.
they are open 9-5 daily with indoor/outdoor seating.

I got this from their web site:
Enjoy breakfast or lunch by del Piero, our Tuscan inspired eatery featuring local and organic products. Our menu includes appetizers, bruschettas, soups and salads, sandwiches and desserts from del Piero family recipes using herbs from our organic garden, meats from The Pork Shop as well as our own oils, tapenades and balsamic vinegars.

All in all it was a great way to spend the afternoon. We came for lunch, went on the tour, bought a baguette and a glass of wine and tasted all the olive oils. Very fun day !

As a Phoenix resident, I am always looking for places to take winter visitors. If you are in the area, I would say go ahead and stop, visit the store and grab some food. I would not pay the $5.00/pp for the tour. The tour consists of a 5 minute talk on the front lawn and a 10 minute presentation in a tent. You do not go out and tour the grove or see how they infuse or create the various oils. I found the tour extremely disappointing.

I have been to Queen Creek Olive Mill on many occasions. It's a lovely afternoon to enjoy the tour, a delicious sandwich and the great Arizona weather in the grove. There are nice events on the calendar including "grill in the grove" or wine-tastings. We love to take visiting family and friends for a relaxing afternoon. The products sold are also outstanding. Among my favorites: The garlic olive oil and the chili olive oil, the asiago-parmesan tapenade, ALL the stuffed olives, and last but certainly not least, the hand balm. Don't miss the chance to check out this local family owned business. You won't be disappointed.
