Do you know what Greeks say when they sit down to eat? “Kali oreksi.” It means “enjoy your meal,” and it’s what the folks at Olives have been wishing their customers for more than 20 years.

Since 1995 Olives has served some of the best to-go breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals in Princeton, following the 30-year tradition of its sister store, Colonial Farms, in Washington’s Crossing, Pennsylvania. Olives serves only the best baked goods, prepared foods, wraps, sandwiches, and noshes.

What makes the food so good at Olives is that everything that goes into every dish is fresh. Produce, much of it coming from local growers and farms, is brought in fresh every morning. Fresh-baked breads are delivered every morning as well, and all of Olives’ legendarily delicious baked goods are made from scratch, on site, every day.

Drop in for breakfast and grab a fresh bagel sandwich, a healthy egg-white omelet, or maybe a specialty wrap to go.

Or drop in for lunch and enjoy one (or more, we won’t judge) of Olives’ six daily hot specials and a nice hot soup. Or grab a sandwich to go, on a soft, fresh roll. Olives’ lunch menu updates daily, so there’s always something new to try.

Or pick up some dinner. Olives serves hot fresh package dinners to go, made fresh daily and inspired by the best Greek recipes. Try the moussaka or spanikopita; you’ll be extremely glad you did. And, in fact, many of Olives’ dishes are made with authentic, imported ingredients from Greece.

Or, you could have your meal catered, an Olives specialty since the doors first opened on Witherspoon Street nearly 21 years ago. Olives can cater for parties from just a few to 700. From hors d’oeuvres to pastas and sides, and from delicious entrees to decadent desserts (even custom cakes), you simply can’t go wrong when you have Olives provide the food.

Also, if you need china and glassware, linens and tents, or even servers and bartenders, Olives can provide those for your special occasion.

Eating healthy is easy at Olives, too. More people want to eat cleaner and healthier these days, and Olives has numerous healthy options that prove smart eating and delicious eating are not mutually exclusive endeavors. Try one of Olives’ great salads, made with fresh, local produce and healthy grains. Everyone, from strict vegetarians to someone looking to indulge a sweet tooth can find something at Olives that will keep them coming back.

Beyond the food, Olives also serves up friendly smiles, great, fast service, and a promise that you will be back. At Olives, it’s about Good Food … Always.
