Two different concierges highly recommended this establishment so we had to go for lunch. A short wait even on a rainy Tuesday was well worth it. Cozy ambiance but nice energy, friendly service, and wonderful flavors. Sandwiches, paninis, creative salads, and sweets filled the menu...More

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!
