Before my sister and I split and head our separate ways to college, it’s our tradition to get lunch at the adorable and delicious Olga’s Cup + Saucer in Providence, Rhode Island.
So, that’s what happened last weekend; before saying our goodbyes, we grabbed some grub at this quaint eatery amidst an industrial city setting. If you’re ever in the Providence area and looking for a good spot for breakfast or lunch, I highly suggest this place.
Olga’s is located at 103 Point St., which is a ways outside of the downtown Providence area, but with that comes quick access to the water.
In my opinion, the best thing about Olga’s is the nicely-sized, heavy tree-covered patio area that comes with it. This is the main reason why Olga’s is a must-try during the warm summer and spring seasons. With this cute, cottage-style patio, Olga’s does a great job at providing its guests with a cozy and quiet environment–a rarity within the brick-lined, bustling streets of Providence.
If you use your imagination a little, it’s like you are brunching in a magical forest somewhere within your favorite fairytale.
For a second you thought I was going to forget to talk about the food…impossible!
While it seems Olga’s brunch menu is it’s most popular, my sister and I made it there for lunch. I ordered the Mayan Chicken Salad on Greens, while my sister ordered the Mayan Chicken Salad panini style. I have no complaints about this chicken salad that was tossed in chipotle mayo as opposed to regular because in my opinion, the spicier the better!
We also ordered some coffee drinks while at Olga’s, because it’s impossible to not order some coffee drinks when you’re at Olga’s.
I got the “Dublin Fog,” which is vanilla and mint teas combined with steamed almond milk (the almond milk was what I wanted as opposed to regular milk.) So, it’s basically a vanilla/mint latte without the super sugary flavor syrups.
‘Twas delicious. My sister got an iced hazelnut mocha and was very, very pleased with it.
If you are looking for more of a cafe experience, you can head inside Olga’s for a vast selection of pastries, muffins and scones. This is definitely a good option for those who want to get something on-the-go.
Yes, everything looked delicious. They even make their own bread on site–they are known for their sourdough.
