Plan to get here early...the restaurant fills up quickly for good reason. Everything was delicious, especially the pastries. Despite the crowd, the service was delightful. No one rushed us, and everyone was so pleasant. Even if there is a line, it is worth the wait!

I would agree that about 15 minutes would get you there. The restaurant can be very crowded so be prepared to wait in line.

Yes, olive y gourmando is open for brunch. There aren't many tables. I ate at a bar facing the windows. Be prepared to wait for a seat on Sunday's. The food is worth the wait!
