Called in here and had an excellent lunch and very nice glass of Sauvingon, good quality food we had the tuna pannini and was so tasty with a hint of chilli that made it special. Great friendly staff too love it here!

On a drive to Skerries, we used Trip Advisor to find a cafe nearby, and Olive popped up. Beautiful (strong) coffee, yummy homemade pastries, and the food looked to die for. We'll 100% be back for food, and coffee of course!!

I stopped by here with my boyfriend on a wintery blustery day. We got a seat no problem. It has seating inside and outside but due to weather we opted for inside. There was limited seating inside and we both found it cold for the duration of our stay (hence why I gave it a 4 star) You have to... More

We were out for a walk around Skerries and decided to nip in for a quick bite. We were lucky to get in as have attempted to go in a few times before but they have always been out the door busy. This day was no different but we managed to get in. Food options were good with soups, sandwiches... More

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.
