We came here for lunch on a recommendation and weren't disappointed. The fish pie was delicious and came with a side salad and great bread. The staff were all friendly and welcoming. Reasonably priced.

The staff are very friendly even when very busy as is often the case. We eat here on a regular basis post run/walk/cycle and look forward to good coffee and something tasty. The only drawback is its popularity but if you gauge it right you can have a relaxing brunch or afternoon coffee.

This small cafe is at the harbour area of Newcastle. Very popular with local people and always seems to be busy. The friendly staff and good quality food all make this a good cafe outside the main town area. Use it as an excuse to walk out to the harbour and back.

The atmosphere is different because the decor is different so the place has a distinct air of originality.

Yes - I have been a number of times. Glutten free options are great and a good understanding of food. Always seems busy. Well done. Great wee place that is always innovating! You don't just get bacon and eggs - lets just say - lovely wee place!

After recommendation from a friend, we stopped in Olive Bizare for breakfast, and what a treat we had! Well worth the visit... the selection of homenmade treats was also eye watering. Go with an empty stomach! Visiting the bathroom with its alternate decor also a quaint surprise...!

Description
Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox
