Wonderful shop!
Jul. 2021 • Couples
We visited The Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Company in July. A wonderful shop and a great experience testing and choosing both olive oil and balsamic vinegar. Iggy set up a taste testing table for us and we chose a bottle of olive oil and a raspberry balsamic vinegar. I highly recommend stopping by this store!

Thank you for reviewing us a few weeks after your visit. So glad that you had a positive experience and that you have found some personal favourite. As you know, as a COVID precaution we are currently doing all our tasting outside at a table set up for customers. Thank you for being open to the idea! Happy Tasting!

Service was excellent! Friendly and extremely knowledgeable staff. It was a really fun experience tasting the different products. We can’t wait to get home and try all the new ways to use the amazing oils and balsamics. The variety of flavours and potential Parings for everything from a cocktail before dinner through dressings and marinades to desert parings. So excited!!

A must , just the Best!
Jun. 2021
This is a must stop while visiting Gibsons. I bring all friends and family here when
they are visiting. The most wonderful olive oils and balsamic vinegars, not to mention other gourmet delights. My brother from Calgary stops in every time he is visiting and now orders on line from them.

Amazing Customer Service
Jun. 2021
I came in to grab a small housewarming gift, and I was delighted to receive such amazing customer service! I was helped by a younger girl named Marie, who presented me with a great variety of gift options. After 10 years of living on the Sunshine Coast, I couldn't believe I hadn't ever stepped foot in this store! When I left I didn't just walk away with my olive oil, I walked away with one of the best customer service experiences of my life. This is a must-visit destination, whether you live on the coast or not.

Thank you for such a heartwarming and positive review. It's lovely that you mentioned one of our tasting guides by name, especially since she is still in High School and we are so proud of how poised and helpful she is. Seeing young people step up during the pandemic is very inspiring. Your review will be shared with our whole team - and we will all want to give her a big pat on the back. Thank you and Happy Tasting!

Foodie or not this store is a must!
May 2021
My wife and I have been enthusiastic customers since the SC Olive Oil Co. opened. Initially the draw was simply their high-quality olive oils. But since then their fabulous array of products has us truly hooked. The balsamic vinegars, white and dark, have also become a staple in our home. And with the help of the incredibly knowledgeable staff inspired by great ownership, the versatility of their products as staples for salad dressings and refreshing beverages, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, provided a tremendous education. That coupled with unique recipes and parings, presented either via the newsletter or website, there are always fresh menu options to give a try. A big thank you to Fiona, Matt, and their incredible team.

We really strive to share our passion for high quality oils and balsamics with our customers, and we are fortunate to have a team that is as enthusiastic about them as we are. I will be sure to share your comments with them! Thank you for commenting on our many educational tools, for example our recipes, website and newsletter. We recently hired a chef who is now contributing new recipes regularly, so stay tuned for more exciting food ideas to come! Happy Tasting!

Amazing store of Balsamic vinegar and Olive oils
Aug. 2020 • Friends
This our first time to visit this amazing store and it has a lot to offer when it comes to different varieties of balsamic vinegar and olive oils. Yvette is very accommodating and knowledgeable when it comes to what kind of food/dessert/drink to pair it with vinegar & olive oil. She also give us advice how to properly store the balsamic vinegar and the olive oil. They have a Covid 19 policy in their store which we followed hand sanitize upon entering, social distancing they only allow 2 persons inside the store and for our own protection we also wear our mask. The store is open from 10am till 6pm. We came early to the store as we wanted to do the pair tasting of oils and vinegar and this helped us to choose the one we liked most. The tasting curbside table is open from 10am till 5pm only. We are really happy to find this rare gem. We bought balsamic vinegar and olive oils for our family and gifts for our relatives when we go back to Vancouver City.
When it comes to balsamic vinegar we loved the blueberry, neopolitan herb,honey ginger, aged coconut and figs while in olive oil we liked the basil and Persian lime. Highly recommended.

Thank you for taking the time to provide such a thorough review. I love how much detail you added, particularly about our new tasting policies during COVID. I also want to thank you for following our COVID policies and for wearing masks when not tasting. We have had to adapt many things in the store, but one thing we hope is constant is a welcominh and positive customer experience. I also want to thank you for coming early and giving yourself time. Due to our narrow space, as you mentioned, we can only have a few people in store at a time. Since we normally have crowds in the summer, we are getting line ups at the door at times. By giving yourself time and having patience with the new normal, you make life so much more positive for staff and other customers too. Please let your friend know that we have an online cookbook, so if they aren't sure what to do with some of the flavours, they may find some cooking ideas on our website. You chose some fabulous flavours, ones you can use for different things: salads, marinades, stir fry, making a sparkling drink, mixing into yogourt and more. We don't know what the future will hold during COVID, but our online store will remain open, even if our storefront has to close temporarily. Thanks again for your time and enthusiasm, and positive comments about one of our valued employees!

Fed My Addiction - Even During Covid-19!
Mar. 2020
A huge thank-you to Fiona and her team for offering such superb service! As a local, I feel incredibly lucky to have such high quality products available nearby. I've "explored" more than 25 of their amazing olive oils and balsamic vinegars and always look forward to spending time in the store with their knowledgeable staff.

We are currently in the midst of Covid-19, practising social/physical distancing. In typical Sunshine Coast Olive Oil Co. style - they have stepped up by offering on-line/over the phone ordering for either drive-by pick up or free delivery on the Coast. How wonderful to have received my oils and vinegar at my door within hours of ordering!! Thank-you, thank-you for all you do!

What an absolutely heart-warming review this is. We can't thank you enough for boosting our morale at a time when everyone needs one. We are fortunate to lie in a community that wants to support each other through good times and bad, and your order (and kind review) are perfect examples. We are all in this together, and we will all get through this together. Thank you again and Happy Tasting!
