About Us

Homemade lunches, Lower in fat and 90% of Savoury food is Gluten Free!

Please contact us by phone!

The Olive Grove Café was opened 10 years ago by Lynda Greenway, and is now recognised as one of the best known little eateries in town.

The name 'Olive Grove Café' comes from Lynda's Mum, who is named Olive, as is Lynda's middle name so it has a personal significance for her.

There is a good selection of vegetarian meals available in our Café .

Based inside Homebase
, this small but perfectly formed Café is popular among hungry shoppers and DIY enthusiasts. Everyone who calls into The Olive Grove, and has the apple pie all say that it is the best around!

All food served here is homemade and freshly baked, such as:

  • Stews
  • Quiches
  • Lasagne
  • Baked potatoes
  • Salads
  • Paninis
  • Sandwiches

And for those who have a sweet tooth:

  • Freshly Baked Scones
  • Traybakes
  • Apple Pie

We NOW sell ready to drink wheatgrass which comes in individual sachets or a 2 week supply of 14 sachets.

The Olive Grove Café is well known for serving healthy food, for example 98% of food made here is homemade and 90% of their produce is gluten free. You won't see a chip on site as there is no frying permited on the premises.
