Great local cafe in Skerries. Good variety of food on the menu. I love the outdoor eating area, even in the winter they provide heating and blankets. Very popular with locals which really says a lot.

Easily the best coffee in Dublin. Delicious sandwiches, scrumptious cakes / pastries. Ever friendly and cheerful staff. A real gem.

A real neighbourhood café. Think of Café Nervosa from Frasier but with more character. We had coffee, tea, bagels and toast for breakfast and all of the delicious with one small quibble. Why is it so difficult to get golden brown toast in Ireland? Ours was a pale imitation of the real thing. Café Olive is far from being alone... More

Victim of its own success, Olive café is too often busy and it's hard to find a seat. The food is good but a bit expensive. The staff is always patient and friendly. Olive Deli offers a range of Italian food and sourdough bread but too often the staff seem to be in a bad humor.

My mother and I stopped in here for a snack after a long ride from Dublin. Food is very reasonably priced as well as delicious. I really enjoyed my ham and blue cheese panini pictured here. I Would definitely stop in here again if I ever return to Skerries.

Went in to buy a take away coffee and some fresh bread. The bread looked beautiful but wasn't genuine sourdough no holes inside or sourdough taste. Coffee was lovely. Although there was a lady serving and she wasn't good humor
