Riverfront Times's Description
You can get your greasy spoon on at the Olivette, a strip-mall eatery serving just breakfast and lunch seven days a week. You can sit in a vinyl booth or at the Formica counter and enjoy a bottomless cup of hot, fresh coffee; eavesdrop on the regulars making chitchat with the waitresses; and order yourself a burger, eggs and bacon, or a slinger. But you can also look forward to plenty of unexpected menu choices, too -- like a bacon, feta and tomato sandwich or a breakfast burrito wrapped inside a spinach tortilla. Other strange (but super) signature items include the Amazing Banana Waffle and the Hot Hash & Holly: potatoes with grilled onions, green peppers and ham, topped with two eggs, melted Cheddar and hollandaise. Cheap, good and just a little offbeat, the Olivette embodies everything great about diners.
Tips from foursquare
2011 RFT Best of St. Louis Winner - Best Lunch Counter.
Excellent biscuits and gravy, for a city joint.
The banana covered waffle is really filling. Try splitting it with someone so you can try more than one thing. It's big enough!
Spinach tomato scramble or a slinger... Or both.
The Mahi Filet sandwich with a side of onion rings hit the spot.
