I visited Olive Olios almost every weekend of the school year at Uvic. William welcomed my friends in with smiles, stories and above all wonderful coffee. William and his business are my favourite weekend tradition! He cares deeply about each customer and the coffee is...perfect to drink at the beach. It’s not often a Vancouver island coffee shop door makes you feel like you’re walking into europe... But william has accomplished that!! P.S, if you haven’t tried the ham croissant or the dolmades, don’t just sit there- go get one!!More

We love seeing William a few times a week after our exercise class. His coffee is awesome. He has a wonderful variety of delicous bakes goods, savoury pastries, snadwiches and home made soup. Highly recommend stopping in. You won’t be disappointed!

Olive Olios is outstanding. Has been there the whole time I lived here, (over 20 years) and is such a great place. Their coffee and tea is great; food, too, and ambiance is so neat! Great local stuff, and has the best mocha in town!...: )More

Locally owned shop with excellent coffee and very good treats and food. It's been around for a quite a bit and has a loyal following. Excellent spot for muffins and other sweets, plus full on take-out meals. Really nice service and very good prices. Nice...to see it doing well even though the huge coffee chain is across the street.More

Best soup and sandwich in Victoria . I moved to Victoria several months ago and I live close to this restaurant . I’m eating a combo soup-sandwich everyday. It’s very not expensive for the quality and William is a very nice and polite host ....I Highly recommend this place .More

Located in Cadboro Bay Village, Olive Olio’s is a small bistro with a few tables inside and a few more outside. The daily combo consists of soup and a sandwich for $9.95, which is a bargain, because the food is tasty. The coffee is very...good. A friend recommended it, and I in turn recommend it to others.More

Made my second visit to Olive Oiio's within about two weeks. First time had drip coffee and a chocolate fudge bar which were both good. Most recent visit ordered a large americano and a slice of the fruit cake...which was kinda like banana bread but...with fruit. Both of those were good as well. The location is great...down in Cadboro Bay Village. Its a quaint little spot, pretty small but a refreshing change from Stabucks. Will definitely go back again.More

We were visiting Gyro Park and happened to find this place. Their three cheese tortellini salad is a must try !! Service was great, we definitely recommend to stop by if you are nearby.
