I had the thali wrap, it is full of yummy salad and some kind of chick pea curry salad. And with a yummy sauce. Just delightful. Its a beautiful location. All the food and drinks here are always top notch and service always great. Always...a treat.More

A quick cup of tea turned into a lazy lunch due to the ambience and attention to detail. This is how good it can be when someone really thinks about every aspect of the customer experience, from the source and quality of the food to...the decor, crockery and music. Not cheap but worth every penny. Even had vegan marshmallows for the hot chocolate! Wraps are big enough for two and cakes are amazing! It’s disappointing to be asked lots of questions by trip advisor regarding the plandemic and trying to demonise cash by promoting NWO contactless paymentsMore

First of all, absolutely incredible hot chocolate. Super dog friendly and made my two dogs feel super at ease and offered them treats! Food was incredible (my parents agree) and there's a super diverse menu so if you're vegan there's also loads of options for...that. I would recommend the potatoes oh my goodness. Amazing use of the space that they have as well. Beautiful scenery also.More

The cafe is set beside the lake and is done up inside and out beautifully with so many lovely touches. Their cooked vegan breakfast was one of the best I've ever had and the staff were so lovely. Highly recommend.

We stopped for Hot Chocolate and coffee whilst walking around Siblyback lake. Cafe is in beautiful location besides the lake and serves THE Best coffee and hot chocolate. Staff friendly and welcoming. Dog friendly too and biscuits provided for dogs. Breakfast choice looked wonderful too....Will definitely be backMore

The absolute beauty of Olive and Co is that it is not just another chain cafe on another high street. Like many of the best locations in Cornwall, you need to traverse the road less traveled until you crest a gentle hill and there before...you is the lovely Siblyback lake. If you can’t face the rigours of easy country lanes, go to Starbucks 🤮 On any day, but a sunny day in particular, the lake and surrounding, gently rolling hills provide a fantastic backdrop to Olive & Co. The land is owned by South West water and yes, you pay to park, but charges are fair and help to support this beautiful location. The cafe serve hot and cold drinks and amazing home made cakes. Savoury food is out of this world. Breakfasts include traditional cooked food with a twist, vegetarian and vegan options, as well as home made cereal. Lunchtimes, a range of sensational burritos, along with Mexican food, loaded roast potatoes and other specials, grace the menu. Again. Vegetarians and Vegans are catered for. A separate ice cream booth offers a delicious range of flavours. Walk around the lake and eat or eat first and walk round the lake. Either way. This is a brilliant way to spend several hours. Negative reviews of the cafe and the surroundings are patently made by people who are delusional as to what makes for the very best that Cornwall has to offer. This is a fantastic destination and I have no issue in highly recommending that you visit.More

This gem is on our doorstep so it is something of a guilty pleasure to partake of the victuals on offer. If you are looking for a place to have a walk and food ( or food then walk) then this is the place to...go. Olive and Co offer something interesting and tasty for everyone, particularly If you have vegans or veggies in your family. The vegan hot chocolate is sublime and their coffee blend hits the spot. On the eating front you must try the loaded roast new potatoes that are currently in the menu, or the wraps. I haven’t tried the homemade sausage rolls yet but will be giving them a try next time we visit. There is always a scrummy range of home made cakes if you fancy tea/ coffee and cake. The menu varies with the seasons but a scummy plate or bowl of good nosh can always be found. Dogs are very welcome there is always fresh water and often a biscuit for them too. The lake path is level and accessible there is a great play area for children near the cafe. It does cost to park but funds raised help South West Lakes to maintain the lake and its environment.More

I love this place. I’ve been recommending it to all and sundry recently. Lovely easy walk. Lots of farm animals to view. Really, really good tasty food that’s a little bit different to the usual and has clearly taken some thought. Amazing cakes. Great coffee....Lots of choice for vegi or no meat eating days but also a great bacon butty. I’ve just read a review where someone describes it as being a s**t hole!! What???? I have no idea what they are used to but that is such an unfair review. Try it for yourself. It’s one of my local favourites and I assure you I do not know the owners or anyone who works there.More
