Lovely home cooked lunch, from a wide range of choices on the menu. Nice small and friendly cafe. Unfortunately the service was a bit too slow - waited 20 minutes for the starter... Good value and unusual choices of food made a good break after a long walk in Alexandra Palace park.

Hello Dave, Thank you so much for your lovely words. We are very sorry you had to wait that long. Due to everyone coming in all at once the kitchen got very busy very quickly which meant even the starters had to be served according to the order they came through. Sorry about the wait hopefully you will visit us... More

Visited before a concert. Service and food great. With a few extras as the end of the day. Cheap and large portions cooked/ prepared to a high standard. Would strongly recommend for early dinner as they close 6pm sharp. Shared platter good way to start.

Wanted a quick bite before going to see Glenda Jackson as King Lear at the Old Vic. Very impressed with the freshness of the food, portion size and helpfulness of the staff. Better than going to a chain snack place. Will go back.

Went to the Olive cafe yesterday afternoon at the invitation and recommendation of family. Very friendly place with an interesting mix of English and Turkish foot - particularly the breakfasts. As everyone else has said the portions are large and very good value. Nothing is too much trouble for the owners. We went about 3 pm Sunday afternoon and had... More
