“Excellent pre-dinner stop.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 18, 2013

Great place to stop for a glass of wine. Sit on the patio to get a small view of the ocean. Order the charcuterie plate and olives. Then buy some fabulous olive oil to take home.

“Hidden Treasure”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

We stopped by to sample olive oils and stayed to enjoy a delicious bottle of wine and a cheese and charcuterie platter while gazing at the ocean. Whatever you do don't stop at the tasting area go all the way to the back of the store to the beer and wine area and the adorable patio with the million dollar view! Service was just ok but the spot was romantic and a real find.

“What a delight!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 25, 2012

We came across We Olive quite by chance after going down into the Smuggler’s Cave nearby. We Olive is a fabulous shop selling all sorts of gorgeous tasty treats like Skillet Bacon Spread, Parmesan Asiago Dip, various Balsamic Vinegars as well as lots of other Olives and Olive products. You can test and try out many of the delights they sell, before you buy and you can even sit, like we did, and have a glass of wine and order a delightful sample from their menu. We loved this place and can highly recommend it.

“Great Olive oil and Balsamic combinations.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2012

My wife found this place online and so we stopped on our way from San Diego to Long Beach. They had all sorts of different local oil and vinegar combinations. They had mustards and olive spreads to try along with the Olive oil and Balsamic vinegar combinations. The bread dip into them was good and it was fun to try everything. We ended buying some after sitting down and eating a variety of salami, cheese, nuts, fruit and a couple of jams. The whole experience was great, I would recommend it to anyone. They have wine sampling and local wines to buy and drink as well.

“What a great find!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2012

We stumbled into We Olive while strolling the streets of The Cove in La Jolla during a quick week-end getaway. It reminded me of a local spot here in Phoenix where you can taste the different olive oils and vinegars. What surprised us is that in the back area they also have a wine tasting bar, small tables and a menu of small plates. Since it was early afternoon, we decided to return that evening for a light dinner.

I was glad we did :) I ordered my wines by the 'taste' (1.5 oz) What a great idea! We sampled their cheese and dried meat platter, smoked tuna spread and a few other appetizers. What added to this meal was the beautiful ocean view. I will return to We Olive whenever I'm in La Jolla with my vinegar jug for filling. Loved this place!
