Olives of the World Bistro is family owned by a sweet couple that make amazing food and do a great job of hosting. Eating in this fine bistro is a like a little visit to Europe. Don't go...you won't like it at all...just kidding.

Hi Nancy, Our largest table fits 6 people and it's right next to a 4 top, so 10 is not an issue. Note that we do not take reservations.

Description
We feature over 30 different Extra Virgin Olive Oils (EVOO) and Aged Balsamic's along with artesian foods from local producers...Pasta's, Pickled Products, Mother Kombucha Fermented Teas, Holi Moli Cheesecakes (they are incredible!) and we'll be adding other items as well. Our Bistro allows you to have a light snack, lunch or dinner and taste the EVOO's and flavored Balsamic's paired with food. We have a nice selection of menu items ranging from salads, delicious raviolis, linguini's with mussels and panini's in addition to specials. Think of a Tapas like eatery where you can sit down with friends and order several items that you share together. Our beer menu features craft brews from the USA and Europe and our wine offerings are a selection from around the world.
