Very friendly staff. Lovely food. The cafe itself is small but makes for a cosy friendly atmosphere. The Black Olive also has a shop attached with plenty of cheeses, pates, different breads and other yummy goodies for you to purchase.

My wife recommended we come to this place as she said the cheese on toast was to die for. She wasn't wrong. it was fantastic! Only real negative about this place is that there is not much seating inside. If only the Tardis was real eh!
