Oliver’s is the kinda place that you want to see at every shopping centre, every airport & at every servo. These guys are making healthy, quick, nutritious food accessible. Unfortunately the only downfall at the moment is that it takes an eTag to visit them, something I don’t have…
So I bought an east link day pass and proceeded along the Ferntree Gully road on-ramp to go out of my way to stop for petrol (only to exit via the next off ramp- Oliver’s is in between).
There’s nothing like seeing a line of people, mainly tradies and men in business suits, lining up for their edamame & freshly squeezed juices. I can’t say much for the parents lining up at Ronald’s ( Ohhh is that too obvious?) for, as my son calls it- Fatty Fat Food.
Three young guys were maning Oliver’s and they were all over the customer service. Using my name they reiterated my order, called me over when my Choconana Smoothie & almond milk latte was ready & even offered me some muesli bar samples.
The set up of Oliver’s is pleasing to the eye, collections of lifestyle & nutritional books are on display, along with their varieties of sandwiches, prepared salads, juices & my FAVOURITE- Pana Chocolate (!!!).
There’s a huge selection of gluten free foods, including toast, muffins, slices and brownie options.
There’s also vegan & vegetarian food & drinks available too.
The menu is diverse and doesn’t just have a handful of items.
Breakfast, lunch & dinner can easily be purchased & the service is quick & friendly.
The staff were more than happy to make suggestions & go through any allergen information.
Oliver’s provide three seperate menus- a standard menu, allergen menu & then a brochure broken down into Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten Free & Dairy Free. These guides make food choices, easy. I purchased a fruit salad with coconut flakes, almond milk latte, smoothie & carrot cake. Everything was enjoyable & the carrot cake the best I’ve ever eaten.
If you’re eating with kids & they’re not going to be satiated with a smoothie or juice the ‘kids menu’ at Oliver’s is actually kid suitable. There’s nothing deep fried, nothing processed & no fries!
A kids pack includes a little sandwich- yes with crusts- sultanas, yoghurt, cheese, crackers, carrot & banana bread. Perfection. Honestly, we should be cherishing our kids bodies & nourishing them, not filling them with highly processed, fat laden foods.
Oliver’s isn’t about the latest fad or diet, nor are they about pushing food choices onto their customers. I think Oliver’s is just living up to their name- Real Food.
Nutritious, flavoursome, natural, organic foods.
The better foods that fill your body, the better you will feel & the better choices you will make.
Oliver’s is ground breaking. They’re providing foods that are readily available & making their mark in the ‘fast’ food industry. Oliver’s is ‘fast food’ because it’s easy, simple food. It’s not traditional, it’s natural.
Support this company, and what they’re doing. Embrace the changes & competition they’re bringing to healthy, convenient food.
