Olive Tree Cafe: An Institution for Mediterranean Fare

Don't be surprised if the smell of baking bread greets you when you walk into Olive Tree Cafe in Newark. The kitchen team mixes, kneads, and bakes its own bread in-house. That's how you know it'll always be fresh. And the fresh bread is just the tip of the iceberg. The chefs at Olive Tree Cafe also source their veggies and meats locally when they can, so they're just as fresh and enticing as the bread.

These ingredients converge in authentic Mediterranean dishes, such as the shawarma platter. It showcases grilled chicken breast with a garlicky sauce and a house salad, as well as seasoned rice or fries on the side. You can also dig into a plate of salmon, rubbed down with Mediterranean spices and adorned with onions, olives, and cherry tomatoes. Olive Tree also offers tagines, which refers to the clay pot in which these meaty dishes are prpared and served, as well as a slate of sandwiches and savory pies.
