A Breakfast Date At Olly - Olive's All Day Cafe

My last visit to DLF CyberHub had turned out to be much better than I'd originally expected. A friend of mine had recommended this new neighborhood cafe by AD Singh's Olive Group called Olly; going by the brand's fantastic reputation to churn out one masterpiece after another, the foodie in me just had to be there at any cost. Besides, what better excuse to spend some 'me' time than a quick morning brew and breakfast at Olly, I'd told to myself.


True to its name, Olly is young, welcoming and dynamic, bringing a positive vibe with it that's so hard to ignore! The space is accessible and easy on the eyes, plus the music is buzzy. Not for a single second did I feel out of place!

Olly - Olive's All-Day Cafe

The all day menu at Olly has everything going to make you smile from ear to ear. Its the kind of menu that allows you to find your own palate. Representing the international cafe culture, typical of an Aussie style cafe, Olly brings the love for good food and great coffee to the heart of Gurgaon.

New School Porridge

You'll absolutely love the freshly brewed coffee, bespoke drinks, free-flowing wine, artisanal cocktails (free of synthetic ingredients), housemade cold-pressed juices, and spritzers, just a few of Olly's everyday elements.

The no-frills menu features a variety of tasty yet healthy options. Think eggs all day, superfood salads, handrolled pizzas, small plates and large, grains and greens, and homemade desserts - all with a focus on seasonality and freshness.

Huevos Rancheros

Clean eating gets its importance here, as most of the dishes are made of whole grains, healthy fats, and superfoods, devoid of any processed items.

The best part is: everything is made in-house. Credits for the splendid work in the kitchen goes to Head Chef Jyotika Malik and her team of Sous-Chefs Jeevan Panda and Sanju Joshi.

The menu features wholesome fruit, grains and smoothie bowls, along with a variety of deliciously prepared eggs and bread options to start the day with.

Buddha Bowl

Olly serves up luscious salads like the Mellow Pomelo with raw mango, cilantro, mint, shallots, greens, peanuts, sesame seeds, chili, star anise vinegar with a choice of adding prawns. Also try the Super Bowl Salad with red quinoa, charred corn, kale, pomegranate, feta, walnuts, dates, jalapeno vinaigrette, and an option of adding grilled chicken.

Next up, taste the small plates on the menu such as The Big Cheese with fresh burrata, honey, rosemary, coriander seeds and oranges; Out of Vietnam rice paper rolls; Korean Fried Chicken; Crispy Calamari; and Sweet Pots with feta, chili, lime, celery, parsley, cranberries, walnuts, and avocado.

Hangover Brekker Burger

Bring an added appetite for the large plates such as the Ginger Salmon which is made of black sesame, stir-fried spinach, cashew, chili and teriyaki sauce, as well as the Lamb Chops with cauliflower couscous, spicy sesame cucumber and fresh tzatziki. Scrummy meals in bowls like the Bangkok Curry Bowl also feature on the menu with comfort pizzas and pasta.

Don't miss the Green Goddess; its penne (whole wheat or gluten-free options available) with broccoli, asparagus, parmesan, herb, and walnut pesto.

One of the highlights at Olly is a dedicated coffee menu. It features single estate craft coffee from Koinonia, Mumbai, who know their coffee at the bank of their hands. Try the Koinonia Original Cold Brew, Marvahulla single origin coffees, bespoke iced coffees like the salted caramel, or the coconut iced latte and the toasted marshmallow iced mocha. There are a number of tea options to choose from for tea lovers as well.

The Beverage menu separately features all fresh and natural cold-pressed juices, bespoke mocktails, spritzers made with in-house syrups like the Ginger Ninja with apple and lime juice, fresh ginger and lemongrass, honey and topped with soda. You could also pick smoothies whipped with milk, almond milk or vanilla ice cream as per your choice or go for the delicious house-made cocktails such as the British Springtime with gin, elderflower, and white wine. There's Hoegaarden on tap for all the draught lovers.

Finish well with Olly's hearty desserts such as the French Toast, Pancakes, Brookie (brownie mixed with cookie) or the decadent Banoffee Pie, Tiramisu or Caramel Pop (Panna Cotta and popcorn).

Olly - Olive's All-Day Cafe

Olly is akin to a minimalistic canvas, with splashes of color which reflects in the floor tiles, the yellow-green wall, indoor plants and wall paintings. A key part of Olly's daily life revolves around a sense of community, where friendships are born, memories are made, and casual businesses are done. At Olly, there's constant excitement and engagement, making Olly a classic networking hub. Being environmentally conscious and a proponent of nature, Olly is a big supporter of reduce, reuse, and recycle too.

I can't wait to visit Olly again!
