Lovely little restaurant. We had breakfast here. Husband had eggs on toast, and I had the granola. Both dishes were fabulous! I usually don’t get granola out at restaurants, but I was glad I did. Perfect combination of crunch with nice fresh fruits!

I'm a regular at H&O and it's always good. Friendly staff, great food and excellent Kokako coffee. The toasted cheese scone is the best I've had anywhere! The coffee is probably the best in Blenheim (there is one other contender: Karaka Cuisine).

Great brunch, great coffee, excellent gf and df options! Friendly staff. I had the French toast on brioche buns, cooked beautifully and tasted like a donut

After a few days on the Queen Charlotte Track, we took a kerbside table at Herb + Olive. Very glad we did... easily the best eggs bene and coffee I've had in the region – and a cute old building with staff who know what...they're doing. Loved it.More

I have been travelling around the South Island and found Herb & Olive through TripAdvisor. There is a lovely cosy feel to the space that I enjoyed with live plants as decor. The staff were happy and helpful. There was some trouble with the payWave...or receiving card payments while I was there, but the staff handled it quickly. The food is very nice but beware it is healthy food so not necessary what you want if you are not expecting it. Definitely a lovely atmosphere and customer service, worth a drop in!More

I had the three-cheese toasted sandwich here and it changed my life. Sandwiches don’t often have this effect on people but that is a testament to how good it was I suppose. The people here are so friendly.
