About Us

Let us welcome you to our scratch kitchen, and take you on a journey to the Mediterranean where you can step away from the mundane restaurant chains and experience something new.

Our family restaurants proudly serve wholesome, healthy, full flavored Mediterranean Cuisine. Handcrafted in house, we use only the freshest, highest quality produce, poultry, and meats from locally sourced certified Halal farms.

The Olives Branch family opened its first restaurant in 2012 to honor “Grandma”, who shared her special take on Mediterranean Cuisine with open arms and a smile. She cooked huge meals to help feed families in need and used food to bring people together, making this her olives branch to her community.

We want to continue this tradition by sharing her age old recipes and build on her beliefs and values so that we may extend our olives branch to our communities of Irvine & San Juan Capistrano.

Join us and experience Olives Branch Express.
