Carlton Mediterranean Restaurant, Vegetarian Restaurant - The Olive Jar

The Olive Jar Cafe 


Welcome to The Olive Jar Cafe, we bring you a taste of the Mediterranean, with Antipasto and a Tapas Bar.

Modern Australian Dishes are entwined by our chef, using the finest ingredients so that every dish is prepared with love and flavour.

This casual dining experience, is open with an all day breakfast menu, gourmet homemade pizza and pasta, traditional homemade gelati, great Italian coffee and homemade biscotti and sweets.

We offer Gluten Free and Vegetarian dishes, ensuring that everyone can enjoy being transported to the Mediterranean, through the flavours of The Olive Jar.

The Mico Family arrived in Australia in 1967 and since then have gathered a reputation and respect from diners and food critics for over 40 years, formerly owners of the renowned La Contadina Restaurant. With the younger generation now bringing their experiences, flair and the art of food, introducing dishes that will take you on a journey to the Mediterranean. Our focus is to offer a more relaxed take to what we believe is the "European way of life" a tavola non si invecchia.....

A hidden gem in Carlton.
