New Zealand, Wellington - Olive Cafe

Cuisine: Cafe, Breakfast
Location: New Zealand, Wellington

Since my breakfast choice was shut on Easter Monday I tried the place I skipped yesterday which was open, Olive Cafe. It’s a small little place also open for dinner. Reminds me of something you would find in Melbourne.

Olive Cafe - Buttermilk Pancakes, Maple Syrup, Candied & Fresh Figs

Olive Cafe – Buttermilk Pancakes, Maple Syrup, Candied & Fresh Figs

I chose the buttermilk pancakes, maple syrup, fresh and candied figs for NZ$16 (with surcharge for public holiday NZ$18.40).

These pancakes were light and fluffy but what I really liked about them is the crunchy exterior which made them taste amazing. Dipping a piece in some maple syrup, having some slightly sweet candied figs and balancing out the sweetness with the fresh figs was yum.

 

Olive Café Food Review Summary

Verdict: A lovely little café with a nice cosy feel. The café also opens for dinner. I had the buttermilk pancakes which were fluffy and had a lovely crunchy exterior which turned them into something amazing. Dipped with a bit of maple syrup, some candied figs for a little more sweetness, and fresh charred figs to counteract the sweetness and it made a fantastic start to the day.
Price: Reasonable
Taste: Delicious
Value: Excellent
Recommendation: Recommend

Restaurant Rating System

It's subjective but I base my reviews on 4 key areas:

Price: Bargain > Reasonable > Moderately Expensive > Expensive
Taste: Poor > Average > Great > Delicious
Value: Poor > Good > Reasonable > Excellent
Recommendation: Eat At Home Instead > Try Once If You Want But Not Worth Visiting Again > Worth Visiting > Recommend > Highly Recommend

The final recommendation will consider the price, taste and value. Value will be based on price and other factors like service and serving size.
