We had breakfast here last Saturday 22nd April, after staying in local Premier Inn, didn't fancy their breakfast, so went to Olive instead as I'd seen it the evening before and thought it looked nice. I was very pleased we went there as was my husband, we had Olive breakfast and full English, both were excellent, bacon and sausage were... More

I'd looked at places for Breakfast, and this seemed appealing It was quiet when I was in, and I was given a Menu and asked if I wanted a drink I ordered a Cappuccino, and Smashed Avocado, Bacon and Poached Egg on Toast Coffee - adequate, but could have been a better Blend, with better foaming also Food - Brilliant!...

We had a very lovely breakfast here and the food was extremely good quality. However, I simply wanted Avocado and bacon on toast. I was charged for the nearest thing on the menu which included 2 poached eggs. I honestly thought that they might charge me a slightly reduced cost. Disappointed with that but otherwise lovely food and service. Hey... More

Today I have had the best breakfast in town. I had "olives breakfast" which was very tasty and delicious. The coffee I must say the best in town too. Friendly and charming staff, the waitresses always smiling and helpful. Definitely 100% good choice to eat.

Best breakfast in bournemouth period! I'm not sure how this place didn't win breakfast cafe of the year in the local town.. The food is consistently good, and the chef will cater for those following diets too. Nothing is too much trouble. The waitresses are also lovely and attentive. Food quality and service is excellent.

I know that's a bold statement. But having come back here 3 days in a row (which I never do) I'm prepared to stick by it. The cafe is clean and tidy, the staff friendly, smiling and efficient. The menu is varied for a cafe if this type. But what makes it stand out for me is the quality of... More

I visited this place for the first time. Food looks and tastes gorgeous. Me and my friend had a jacket potato, which was served by a girl who made the whole experience far worse. She gave an impression of a person with no enthusiasm at all. There is a possibility to have a sit outside, which is great.

Had a morning visit for breakfast. Great selection of food and drinks. Service was very good and the prices were reasonable. Coffee was the proper stuff and not instant which is a great plus in my world. Shall definitely return the next time I'm in the area.
