Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great staff - always check that I'm happy with my order. Love the choice of sweet slices each day. Went there every day of our stay as they offer free wifi. Check it out for lunch as well. Food is fresh. Menu is not too...extensive, so what they serve is fresh and tasty. Don't miss the coffee. It's delicious. Can't brag enough about this place.More

Excellent, comfortable cafe with good food and staff. Good location with a wide choice of meals at good prices. Thoroughly enjoyed my burger and chips. I like to rate places by their burgers and chips 😋 You can sit indoors or outdoors in a relaxed...comfortable atmosphere.More

As in my December 2019 review both the food and service at the Olive Cafe are excellent. The scrambled eggs were a very generous serving and the coffee was of a high standard.

What a delightful spot for a coffee or a meal. So happy and friendly with a great atmosphere. Lots of locals drop in and the cafe has a great vibe! Great coffee too - and the meals looked beaut - although we only had coffee.

We found the Olive Cafe on day 1 of our Norfolk Island visit and had breakfast and coffee there, both were excellent, and we went back several times during our stay for coffees again. The staff are friendly and they have plenty of seating space,...plus local produce and knick-knacks to purchase if you want. Location is right is the centre of town, Burnt Pine, so handy to everything.More

This was our second visit to the Island in the last year, and Olive Cafe is by far the best place for coffee and lunch. Visited 4 times over the week. Staff are friendly and helpful. Sitting outside under the umbrella is lovely. Great toasted...sandwiches Special mention to the young girl from the Netherlands who was working last May also when we visited, very friendly like all of the staff. Will be back on our next trip ☕️ . 🥪More

Good selection of hot and cold snacks. Chicken parmigiana burger was overcooked and had lots of crumb but little chicken. Certainly a disappointment.

This friendly cafe offers great breakfasts and free Wifi. The island is dependant on shipments of food by sea, so food prices are more akin to Australian capital cities. Has a play corner for children. Good coffee.

Lovely relaxed vibe from the staff and the setting. Spanish omelette was on specials board, so could not resist and it sure didn’t disappoint. Mum, again, had bacon and eggs on toast and was a much better experience than the previous establishment she had this...at. And as others have reviewed, fantastic coffee. Staff very friendly and engaging. Will definitely be back.More
