Lovely people working here and you can drink you coffee in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Nice goodies as well. Coffee and tea cups are heated before pouring in your beverage. Especially like the breakfast burritos with salsa. Nice range of gluten free products as well....More

Looking for an alternative to the chain coffee shops? Check out Olive Olio's. Great neighbourhood coffee shop. A nice place to enjoy an espresso and do a crossword. Relaxed atmosphere, and tasty bakery options.
