The Olive Cafe was steps from where we were staying and since we heard they had great food we checked it out. The menu kept us busy for awhile checking out all the delicious options. If you are going there for eggs, you have a number of choices - as long as you like scrambled eggs that is. I didn't see any other option, but didn't ask either. I had the Cousin's Favorite Scramble - eggs, bacon, cheese, green chilies, avocados, onions, hash browns and toast. Incredible! The staff was very friendly, good and quick service, outdoor and indoor seating, 1.5 blocks from Mission Beach. I you are in the area go there!!

Stopped for Sunday morning breakfast while on vacation. Loved, loved, loved the place! There were 3 of us and we all got something different. I got the Berry Brandy Cream Cheese French Toast...out of this world! My friend ordered the Cinnamon Swirl French Toast and thought it was the best French Toast she had ever had! I would not order the fresh fruit cup again though...mostly melon with only 1 strawberry and 1 blueberry.

Close to bay and ocean but no water views. Even so, the restaurant is located in an older quaint area which provided an enjoyable atmosphere for outdoor dining. There is also seating inside. Both areas are tight with very close tables. However, the quality and taste of the food outweighed the negative seating arrangements!

Olive cafe was our regular stop for breakfast every day. Service was quick and had good food at a reasonable price. Good cup of coffee and perfect avocados on my eggs. Only complaint was the Dennys concord grape jelly pack that came with the toast. Who likes that stuff? Fix that and would have been 5 stars for me.

We split the breakfast quesadilla and loaded hash browns. It was plenty for two girls to split for breakfast. There is a small patio facing the street. You stand in line to order and they bring your food out to you. I can't wait to go back!!
