Not the very best Cuban in town, but still very good. Order the twist called the Cubano 3 which has bacon and a mayonnaise concoction. Very tasty and filling. The bread was average, but the meats were very good. I'll try this place again. Probably get the half sandwich small salad combo. The atmosphere of the market is just so... More

Menu is extensive. My Reuben was very good and the right size for lunch. with drink, a little pricey at over $9. Refills are 50 cents.

Cafe Olivia is a decent choice, but it's kind of boring. Baseline sandwiches with fresh ingredients, which is kind of the minimum. No unusual combinations, certainly nothing out of the ordinary to justify the high price of a sandwich there. You can find more interesting ways to spend your lunch money when in the City Market.

I had the red beans and rice and it is just like the red beans and rice I got in new Orleans, very good, and very generous serving size, with a pretty low price. Service is pretty quick and friendly.

Chose the Pastrami Reuben from a list of 5 or 6 different Reubens. Pastrami is more buttery than corned beef. My sandwich did not disappoint-- a great blend of pastrami with sauerkraut and zesty dressing. Served warm and delicious.

I work near the City Market and Stumbled Across Olivia's looking for a Quality Roast Beef and Cheddar Sandwich. Olivia's makes a Superior Roast Beef and Cheddar Sandwich. The bun is always Fresh as with all the ingredients. The preparation is unique in the manner they heat the bun and the Roast Beef. I like it with the Horse Radish... More

While it hasn't been around long enough to be called an institution, Cafe Olivia has been a mainstay at the City Market for several years. Whenever I am in the mood for a quick sandwich at lunchtime, this is often my first choice. Prices start at around $5.75 with the more expensive offerings topping out at $7-8. They no longer...
