“No Credit Cards”
Reviewed 26 August 2013

Everything was just OK. The cookies were better. They do not take credit cards. The service is friendly but slow. Seems to me they need more staff, but cannot justify it based on volumes. I have been there many times it it is still just average.

“Best coffee”
Reviewed 16 June 2013

Yes, I'm a local who enjoys going to Oliver's. We appreciate that they use 'fair trade' quality coffee and it is reasonably priced. Their cookies could be better--they tend to be hard and a bit dry. Regardless, the servers are friendly and quick and the seating is like a living room.

“nice change from those chain places”
Reviewed 6 June 2013

This is a nice spot for a coffee break or light meal. The staff are friendly, the food is fresh and the coffee is better than at Tim Horton's or MacDonald's down the street. It's not a franchise but does have another branch in Bracebridge and in Bala. Interesting fact: the place is named after the owner's dog Oliver.
If you like teas, there is a huge selection of better brands to choose from. In the good weather the outdoor seating is very nicely arranged with plants and flowers.
All in all, a nice spot to unwind and relax, meet a friend or check your email. It has wifi, but why not forget about the outside world for a few minutes?

“Mediocre”
Reviewed 29 April 2013

I was really looking for an independent coffee cafe. The atmosphere is more along the lines of coffee time. I had my lunch to stay. My large cappuccino was served in a small cardboard take out cup. My Mediterranean wrap was good. Adding to the cheap atmosphere - having to ask for a key for the washroom.

“Best coffee and latte spot in the area”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Oliver's is a super spot to go for an espresso, latte or brewed coffee. Reliable service and food, always clean and free wifi is a value-add. Nice outdoor seating. Best spot in Gravenhurst to go 'for a coffee'.
