Charming Decor, Friendliy Service and Excellent food. I have been to Olive Bizarre many over the past 5 years. It is always a welcoming place for Breakfast, Lunch and sometimes Dinner (Bistro Nights) and of course coffee and the best tea around.

Great spot to grab some breakfast in the morning. Also good sandwiches, soups and baked treats as well. My fiancee and I ate here nearly every morning during our stay in Newcastle.

A lovely quaint cafe with lovely and tasty cupcakes and everything was very well done. The staff were lovely food was very well made and very tasty. They could improve on having a rule were no dogs are allowed in because when I was there there was a local with a big dos next to my table

My family and I love coming to Olive Bizarre. The food is always fresh and delicious as are the coffee and buns. The menu is different and stands out from many of the surrounding local cafes which makes it a favourite with us. Great atmosphere and the staff couldn't be more friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend!

A little out of town, but worth the visit! Food is brilliant, prices good and the traybakes and buns are to die for! The decor is very cool and everything is very chic. Make sure you visit the toilets too!

Description
Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox
