My wife and I have driven by Olive, An Urban Dive countless times in the years that they have been open and never noticed that it wasn't actually an old Wympee's. Today my wife somehow found out that it was something much more and suggested we try it. Since it was a Saturday morning shortly after 10 AM we just stopped by...parked right next to the great funky-looking building and strolled right in. We had nearly the entire place to ourselves and had our choice of nearly any table both inside and out. Well, in very short order the old adage "Timing is everything" was confirmed. By the time that we left, the tiny place was packed with guests waiting outside...lesson learned...any other time of day...make reservations! The service was fine, the decor is sorta nouveau-hip in an Austin, Texas kinda way...but the food was outstanding. They pride themselves on using all fresh ingredients and the taste confirms that. I had the frittata and my first bit was shocking...it was that good. It came with a side of yogurt and fruit along with local honey and it was great. My wife had the BLT grilled cheese and thought it was very good too. Now, all that glowing praise comes at a cost...don't expect your tab to be Wympee's prices. While not exorbitant for all the obvious care put into the food, it's not cheap! But go see for yourself...we're very lucky to have Olive, An Urban Dive in the dayton area. Just be sure to call ahead.
