The transformation from Stir It to The Fig & Olive has completely revitalised the former café into a fully fledged barista, with a beautiful coffee machine offering my personal favourite a "Flat White" coffee. The menu has been mixed up and now offers an array of choice and styles! Having a vegetarian "better" half I can say that the Fig... More

Having tasted Maria's food before, I knew that on my first visit to Fig & Olive I would not be let down. With a deep focus on all things flavour, the menu invites for a completely different experience compared with the rest of Stranraer. The staff are incredibly helpful and never without a smile. Having visited three times over the... More

From the minute we walked in the door we were warmly welcomed by the staff. The warm welcome really sets the Fig and Olive apart from the competition! The coffee and cakes were amazing whilst the service was quick and friendly. Will certainly be making a return visit in the very near future!

Really quick and attentive service, extensive but not overwhelming menu and the superb coffee. The cafe has a really warm and contemporary vibe too. Would recommend the chicken club if eating in!

We have now visited the Fig & Olive 4 times since their opening, and every time has been excellent. Maria couldn't of been more accommodating- one of the visits was after 5 and there was no pressure to leave. The menu, and quality of food is excellent, and the staff are all very attentive. The hot chocolate is to die... More

From stepping my first foot through the door it was clear that the Fig and Olive experience was very different from larger coffee chains. It bases much of it's approach on creating a friendly and relaxing atmosphere which you can enjoy for 20 minutes or much, much longer. With newspapers available and a welcoming manner from all staff it would... More

I have been here a handful of times now, every time I have been the service has been extremely slow, which I could forgive due to it being recently opened and the owner is always very apologetic and nice. However the last time I went here three waitresses were extremely rude, They noticed and ignored us as we sat down... More

Thank you for your feedback, and thank you for visiting our new café. It is a labour of love, and one we are proud of, so it is always difficult to read of a customer not having an experience that we can be happy with. Apologies for your untimely wait, it certainly is not acceptable for anyone to feel ignored,... More
