The Olive Salad Bar & Coffee Shop
Price range: US$10 - US$15
Description: Open Mon-Sat 8am-5pm. Sundays 9am-4pm. A few months ago, The Olive made the short move to 11 College Road in Alexandra Park. The new location is a house we have adapted to accommodate the restaurant. Self-described as a restaurant specialising in healthy cuisine, The Olive is a relatively unique dining experience in Harare. We have substituted the heavy, unhealthy options normally gracing restaurant menu pages for healthier, more nutritious options that you just know are extending your lifespan. While a lot of us are apprehensive about this style of cooking, the dishes are absolutely delicious. On top of that, the food prices are reasonable and we have a variety of dishes to choose from. The Olive has a casual and relaxed atmosphere as customers can choose to sit outside by the pool or inside, under cover, if they prefer.We do outside catering, takeaways, office parties, kiddies’ lunches and lots more. Recently joining our team are Gibson and Claude (2 top Chefs from Victoria Falls.) We have also added a small kiddies play area. Our inside parking is quite substantial.

Just a brief comment. Been there three times, twice with my wife, once on business. Lunch on every occasion, very generous servings, well cooked, good value for money. Service friendly and efficient, lots of owner involvement. A bit pricey, but not over the top.
