Our Story..

After immigrating from Kythera, Greece, Peter Marios Snr eventually made Ballarat his home in 1965.
With his sons Nick & John and their wives Vicki & Glenda, they began what has been an ongoing relationship with quality food & personal service in Sturt Street by the Marios family for over 50 years.


In 1988 Nick & Vicki opened Florentino's Delicatessen, then moved up Sturt Street to open a newly built premises with their son & three daughters in 1995. This is where the The Olive Grove Delicatessen began.


Today, Peter & his wife Andrea continue the legacy of providing a Mediterranean inspired café using carefully sourced ingredients that are on offer in their deli cabinets and dry store.

This fresh produce is available everyday through the café & deli.
