Ollie's Café in Exeter used to be much better. The coffee was good and they had lots of tasty and appealing sandwiches, cookies, bagels, and other snacks. Lately however the coffee has been terrible - last time in there I didn't even finish it. Plus, they charge a lot for it. I won't be going back, as there are places... More

Many people love this place. However, I feel the price is too high and the food is blah. The bread really isn't that great. You can find store bought bread that is better. The whole place is extremely over-rated and some of the workers aren't very nice.

A happy, family-friendly place, with good wifi. Nice atmosphere. I got their salad with chicken, and the chicken was so dry and plain, it was hard to swallow. After that, they tried putting in a salad bar. I liked that better, though, pesky flies seemed determined to buzz around it, making it less appetizing. With door opening so frequently, and... More

They have a very good selection of sandwiches and their own baked breads and snacks. They also have a good pay by weight salad bar. It's right in town and they have their own parking lot that makes it easy. Service was at the counter and decent. A variety of cafe drinks to choose from as well.

Go in once a week; Michelle is very attentive, but service from others ranges from average to insulting. Cappuccino is excellent; new tea vendor they use disappointing. Bagels and breads very good. Lots of room for improvement.

A good choice to meet for lunch of coffee break. Good coffee and lots of sweet choices to go with it or order one of their delicious sandwiches. They also have soups if you prefer on a cold day.

I enjoy the selections of tea (and coffee), and the baked goods are delicious. I have not been impressed with the lunch salad, but sandwiches are good. My favorite item to buy is their challah, baked fresh each Friday.

This restaurant serves the very best homemade breads for their outstanding sandwiches! The chicken salad offers the most fresh chicken I have ever had. The interiors very clean, the service is quick and the staff is very friendly. Treat yourself!

Nice, non-chain breakfast and lunch spot. Fresh baked goods and local coffee. Bagels were fine, but I would have preferred to spread my own jam on the bagel vs. receiving it "pre-spread."

The Egg and Cheese in a cheese bagel was excellent, as was the coffee. The staff was nice, the place looks great (we ate in a corner on comfy a sofa!).
