4 of us went here for a coffee one day in our stay in Painswick. There was a young man serving and he was very helpful and polite. The coffee was lovely and the food looked great

Stopped by for lunch given the lovely reviews but it didn't match up for us. The sandwich was ok and average and so was the service, with only other table occupied we were surprised it took so long. Won't be in a rush to return. Much preferred the Patchwork Mouse

Lovely coffee, could not say no to a slice of cake, the problem was which one! Lovely ambiance, so quaint in a beautiful village

Very tasty light lunch, homemade guacamole was gorgeous. Just what was needed for a quick lunch stop.

A visit to Painswick was promised as a perfect Cotswold treat for visitors from Chicago in their concluding couple of hours in Gloucestershire. Of course they loved the churchyard and surrounding stone buildings. Disappointed to find the Royal Oak closed on a Tuesday lunchtime (we had hoped for a typical English pub), but believing from others' reviews that Olivas Deli... More

It was my sister who led us to this well hidden little gem in the back streets of Painswick, not far from the famous churchyard. The interior is tiny, I would guess with seating for about 16 people. There is a good variety of fare from home made cakes and panini to main dishes, but four of us went for... More

After walking 6 miles we were delighted to find this little restaurant serving such a variety of foods for such a small menu. It was so nice to see... More

Painswick is quite a small town with little commerce so we were glad to find this cafe. Good coffee and cakes. Pleasant service.

Quick coffee and cup of tea on a Sunday afternoon. Got the impression they would rather us not have arrived at 3:30 as they were wanting to go home at 4:00 pm. Had to ring twice for service before being barked at to wait.

OLIVAS07, Owner at Olivas, responded to this review

Dear Sir We regret that this was your impression, we are not 100% sure what you mean with regards to barking at you. The day had been particularly quiet and staff tend to do other tasks in between customers, reason for which, we have our little bell for customers to draw attention to their arrival. It is the norm that... More
