Quite simply the best food around at the best prices. The owners and daughters are a delight to see every time I go there. I have no idea where the bad review came from. Must be talking about somewhere else! (or own the cafe down the road!!!).

You will not go wrong here. Honest food, great people and atmosphere.

BEST FOOD EVER!!!!

Have enjoyed dining at Olive's for many years and have always had wonderful food with the added spice of the delightful owner and staff. It's now part of my "family" and I bring all visitors from far and wide to eat and meet at Olive's. Can't recommend it enough-- except that I might not be able to get a table since it's so busy already.

I have been going to Olive for breakfast for many years -and I keep going back because it's by far the best eatery of its kind. I've been heard to say 'not as good as Olive' at other local cafes and further afield. Food's good - and so is the welcome. Don't expect a perfunctory, disinterested 'how was your meal?' Olive and her family team really care - in fact their customers are like family. It's only small, so there's no room for things like buggies, bikes or JCBs, and as a family business, they can't cope with the fees Banks charge for Cards, so it's cash only. (These details maybe upset some people.) But if you're looking for somewhere to eat that's good value, good fun and and way above average, visit Olive.

We love Olive. We've been regulars for over a decade and reckon its one of the best cafés in North London, on all counts: atmosphere, value for money and of course the quality of the food.

Probably the best thing about the cafe is the charming family who run it. They are so friendly and welcoming and it only takes a few visits to be recognised and greeted like a long lost family member. And they're all lovely with kids too. No room for buggies inside, so just be aware you'll have to fold them and leave them in the porch (which isn't huge either, so best to leave the big travel systems at home!).

Because Olive is so lovely, it can get busy, but the staff will always try to squeeze you in if they can. Couldn't recommend it more highly :-)

Great place. Friendly staff and a wide menu of very fresh foods to choose from.

I come here at least once a week and would recommend Olive Cafe to everyone.

I love the Olive ! I visit at least once a week with work colleagues.The food is fresh and very well priced. I personally love the cous cous and chicken which comes with salad and a great home made chilli sauce available to spice it up. The decor inside is lovely, Turkish / Arabic lanterns hanging from the ceiling giving a comfortable cozy feel which is only added to by the friendly staff.

This is anything but a cafe! I eat like a king for the price of a Mcdonalds.

If your visiting Hornsey/Muswell Hill you've got to try this place.

I was rather incensed to read the unfair and vicious review, I find it interesting that this person did not leave their name. All of the staff at Olive are very friendly, the service is excellent, the food is amazing, the portions are huge. All in all this one of the best places to eat on Hornsey High Street, it has a fantastic atmosphere and is usually very busy!

Worst service ever in all honesty. The staff were so rude. The daughter of the owner was unhelpful and ignorant and refused to serve us take away by simply shrugging and not speaking. I went to the green cafe instead and other customers informed me that the service and attitude of the staff is so aggressive and uncomfortable that it was the worst place to eat. I will never go there again.
