After a very pleasant walk around Ardgillan we were in need of a late lunch and were relieved to see some empty benches outside Olive. The Covid arrangements of mask, sanitizer, order and wait outside for collection worked perfectly and the coffee and toasted ciabatta...were delicious. Full marks to the very helpful and enthusiastic waitress.More

I wont lie, I've been popping into Olive Deli for the past 2+ years - so it's not a new location for me. However, I have never left a review about them before and I thought now is actually the perfect time to do it....I popped in last week for a quick bite to takeaway and I was really chuffed at how well the staff have everything organised. If you want to 'sit-in' the seating area is outside. The system they have for food is, in one door and order. Plenty of sanitisers around and they have loads of masks for sale too. Place the order, get a receipt and wait outside for your number to be called. They also have a little tea/coffee window now at the front of the building where you can collect your beverages when ready. When your food is ready, staff bring it out the far door and call your number. All staff are wearing protective masks and equipment etc. The food itself is still as lovely as ever, absolutely no difference init and their coffee is just gorgeous. Staff are so friendly and pleasant and cater for allergies (or dislikes.....mustard for me ugh). Highly recommend if you are passing through Skerries and fancy a bit of lunch to go. p.s....Definitely try their selection of cakes and if ordering a sandwich - the Sourdough is really good!More

This is a real gem for locals, and not so locals! A friend of mine from Copenhagen specifically requests to meet for lunch at Olive whenever she visits. The food is delicious, super fresh and excellent quality produce. It also helps that the staff are...so friendly and cannot do enough to help, which makes the wait on a busy day even more worthwhile!! Keep up the great work folks 👏🏼More

Visited this lovely cafe with my sister on a rainy morning. Luckily we got a seat inside- it's very small and cramped inside but the food and coffee makes up for the limited space. The coffee is amazing- very high quality and the pastries were...divine (the best almond croissant I've ever had!). Breakfast was delicious and great value. I recommend the avocado toast with feta! The only downside was cramped seating but it added to the chatty atmosphere :) I will definitely come back here.More

I really like this cafe, great coffee and food. While it is cosy it was verybusy during lunchtime. That of course is a great sign that a local place is good!
