All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn't hurt.
For a short period, I lived around the corner from Olivia's. I gained 10 lbs. I literally could not walk by this little whimsy without popping in for a slice of whatever was looking delicious that day. My only wish was that it was a bit larger - so I could sit there, have my cake and eat it too.
I'm afraid my rating me be somewhat of an injustice to Olivia's, but after seeing the five star ratings and reading the review I used it as the place to meet a language tandem partner for the first time. I was very embarrassed to discover that it is much more of a shop and less a cafe, the place was very busy and only has one table to sit at inside, so we were forced to sit outside while we had our drinks. My hot chocolate was enjoyable but unremarkable.
I would like to point out that the cakes inside looked delicious and there is a very good selection of chocolate on offer too, just make sure you don't come along with too many friends!
I stumbled upon this place whilst looking for a flat I was going to see.... I ordered a piece of a fabulous cake and the woman was super wonderful who helped me. It's more of a take-away as there's really no room to sit unless you're one of the lucky people. There's also an Olivia in Barcelona run by a German guy but there's no connection. From 2008 review I did for qype
a must see! olivia rocks and so does her store great assortment of cakes, teas, chocolates, coffee, etc. and the place is always decorated so adorable!
