Could be one of the greatest places on Earth... not just Route 521. Beyond the extensive selection of oils and vinegars you forgot you needed are coffee and baked goods that are mind-blowing. One of those places you want to tell others about.,.but not if one of those people you tell wind up taking the last cupcake. Book a flight with Expedia if necessary. Yeah. That good. More...

I love I can go in The Southern Olive and not have to worry about what is and isn’t gluten free and if anything has been contaminated! The staff is always friendly and willing to try to make whatever your heart desires. They also do but free, lactose free, some other “frees”, keto and paleo. More...

Finally got my husband to stop by and pick up a few goodies. He was impressed with the helpful staff and the large selection of treats. He brought home several items, all of which were AMAZING! I have to give major props though for the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cupcake. I left it out on the counter overnight and just ate it... even a day later it’s still hands down the best cupcake I’ve ever had. (Notice I didn’t say the best gluten free cupcake!!) This place is out of the way and not at all convenient for me but I have no doubt I will be back! More...

Today we stopped in to this lovely gem. A bakery dedicated to gluten free items. Oh what a treat!It's difficult to find fresh baked gluten free items anywhere in Charlotte. If you do, the items are thrown in the same cases as regular baked goods. Two words for you... cross contamination When we walked in and said do you have any gluten free items. They replied "it's all gluten free". Situated near fort mill in Indian land. It's a 25 minute drive and totally worth it. The employees were lovely and accommodating. My wife was so impressed with the quality of the items we bought . We will most certainly be back. Thanks you for taking care of the Celiacs. More...

KETO-FRIENDLY BAKERY!! After reading the reviews, I drove out there from Mint Hill. They had a good selection of keto friendly desserts. The lady at the counter was very nice, willing to answer questions, and make suggestions. We got the cheesecake, chocolate chip cookies, brownie, and chocolate iced Cupcake. Everything was really good! My 13 year old (who wants nothing to do with keto) got the cheesecake and loved it!! I think we found our new favorite bakery!! More...

Stopped in here yesterday after lunch for something sweet. Loved the selection of gluten free and vegan options. It is near impossible find great tasting desserts that I can eat, but I found my place. This will be my weekly cheat day spot for sure! The owner was also so helpful in helping me locate what foods items they offered that fit all my restrictions. Can't tecommend this place enough! My kids, who have no restrictions, were also able to find a great tasting dessert too that they loved. More...

I love that I can go into your store and I’m safe to eat ANYTHING there! I don’t have to worry about accidentally ingesting gluten. I loved at one of the wine tastings how you shared the back story to why you opened the store and that each item promotes health. Living with food allergies makes eating out and going to events less exciting but I just love being able to feel “normal” when out for a special treat in your store. More...

I big ❤ this place. We have visitedhere and specialty ordered from here for about 2.5 years. Eventhough we live an hr away we still come here. Everything I've had bakery wise has been AMAZING. Haven't had their drinks but I love the options. And the oil vinegar Selections are vast and welll made. Being GF/DF it is hard to find good baked goods, even if you make them as I do there's alot of trial and error. They are consistently yummy.Was just the lastnight for a awesome wine tasting event. Scout &Cellar- All clean truly organic wines that tasted nice. And the food was delicious and healthy. Amber and folks are welcoming and attentive.. I'm just sad ther last carrot cake cupcake was sold before I left. More...

We have loved the gluten free treats from The Southern Olive for a couple years, but when our daughter was diagnosed with Celiac Disease last summer, it put an entirely new spin on this amazing bakery. We are so thankful for a place we know we can get completely safe food for her that she will truly enjoy! She loves dropping by to grab a GF cupcake or muffin anytime she's headed to a party or friend's house. Thank you so much for being a safe place in a world of uncertainty! More...

I was so excited to find this dedicated Gluten Free bakery! I can walk in and eat anything I want...something most of us with Celiac Disease never get to do. They can make most anything you want and can adjust for a huge variety of food sensitivities, allergies, and dietary needs. And all of it is delicious! My only complaint? I don’t live closer to them!

I often give a rating, but don't write reviews, either because I'll only echo what everyone else is said, or because nothing good or bad enough to be particularly memorable stands out. My experience here stood out, so I wanted to make sure I wrote a review this time!We had been casually poking around for a gluten free bakery for a while, but not paying any particular mind, until our daughter graduated high school this week. I had seen The Southern Olive before, but assumed they were miscategorized, or something like that. After all, what is a store who sells fancy olive oils doing saying that they are a bakery?Well, I decided to actually look into them a bit, and found out that they do, in fact, have a bakery. I gave them a call - 24 hours' notice, mind you, for which I was extremely apologetic - and they were able to make me a cake for pickup the next day. I'm quite sure they weren't very happy about that, but they never uttered a word of discontentment. As a matter of fact, everyone in the place is EXTREMELY nice. A very welcoming experience.Now let's talk about the cake. WOW! First, they knocked it out of the park. For 24 hours' notice, this cake was gorgeous. Honestly way better than I expected, and much prettier than I thought it would be. They did a fantastic job, and my daughter absolutely loved it!!Gluten-free baked goods are sort of a dark art... It takes an immense amount of time to concoct something that tastes good, isn't too dry or crumbly, etc. Well, these people must have put in some SERIOUS time, because this is, by far, the best gluten-free cake I have ever had! The cake was extremely moist, and VERY delicious!We also had the vegan icing, as my wife and daughter are allergic to dairy. The icing was also delicious! If I nitpick at all, there was probably a bit too much icing, and it's probably a tiny bit too fluffy for my tastes - but those are really just preferences, and absolutely do not reflect on the bakery at all! The cake was inexpensive for a gluten-free product, absolutely delicious, beautiful, and I was able to pick it up from the very friendly and helpful staff, extremely quickly. The Southern Olive is a rare example of a place that DESERVES that 5-star rating. Thank you so much, we will definitely be giving you our business again!!! This time, we know you're there, so we will give you plenty of notice! :) More...

I was delighted to find the best tasting gluten free bread that I have ever had! I was taste testing the olive oils and vinegars and the dipping bread was amazing! Shocked to find out that it is gluten free. I bought two slices to bring home to try, and I will be back to buy an entire loaf. I have not eaten a sandwich in I don’t know how long. I’m excited that they also have hamburger buns made by the same baker! I bought a bottle of the Herbes de Provence oil. It was so good with the bread! I will def be back to try some baked goodies and to buy more flavored olive oils and vinegars. More...

Reluctantly I dub this place with five stars, although it is certainly not the greatest i have ever experienced;  but it does meet the Yelp! definition of being as good as it gets.  And so it is, as an olive oil and products with accoutrements for olive stuff, I guess that there just isn't much more that the COULD do to be better.It is clean.  The staff knows what they are doing.  Samples galore, as it pertains to the various olive oils and vinegars (both from olives).  They also have coffees, teas, a wine bar and I think beer, along with some simple pastry/bakery snacks.  Yes, drop in for a mouth tour of the olive products and then sit down and enjoy a coffee and goodie.On our first venture here we bought a sampler pack of I think it was 3 or 4 oils and 3 vinegars.  Something like that.  We tried them all at home.  The flavors are great:  orange, blackberry, lemon, etc.  And what a difference they make on simple salads.  Surprising.The vinegars were a little tricky and we learned that you use one or the other:  either flavored oil or vinegar.  The flavors can compete unpleasantly, sometimes, with each other.What brought us in the first time was when we saw a sampler at the annual Lancaster Animal Shelter Supporters fashion show, banquet and auction.  THAT put us on to The Southern Olive, getting us in the door v. just walking by it as we went into Publix.Worth your perusal.

Excellent variety, freshness, and tastiness! The oil/vinegar selection is astounding! No pics of the baked goods - they didn’t last long!! PS - buy the brownies❤️ We will be back - probably this weekend More...

Mind blowing Olive Oil and Balsamic Vinegar flavors and flavor combinations. You can sample hundreds of flavors. Reasonable prices and great knowledgeable staff. They offer great ideas on how to use the flavors in your cooking, baking and salad dressings. The owner, Amber, was an incredible host to us while we were there. So knowledgeable and passionate about their products. They also have a fresh bakery with incredible gluten free desserts using some of the olive oils and balsamic vinegars that you can buy in the store. They even have a self service Wine Bar. A little wine for you, a cupcake for the kids before or after shopping next door Publix. We love this place. More...

It is easy to see why this place is rated so high. First impressions are lasting impressions. It is obvious that the store owners take a lot of pride in the appearance of their store. There are a couple of bars or tables to sit at if you wish to enjoy your freshly made latte or something from the bakery. Or if you like, you can do some wine tasting through their affordable wine tasting option, and even buy a bottle if you like! Or you can glance at dozens of the highest quality of organic olive oils and sample them too! Or you can by some non-gluten pasta options. Speaking of gluten free, if that is something important to you, then this place would be heaven sent! The bakery items are all non-gluten! You would never know by the taste! Lastly, they even carry gluten free beer, which is supposed to be pretty good (never tried it).Prices are terrific and you don't feel like you have to make a special trip to the ATM to treat yourself. Truly an awesome place! More...

It ain't just oils! 100% Gluten Free everything!!! Take a seat and enjoy wine, beer, coffee or tea. Or, instead, check out their gourmet provisions and taste test infused olive oils, white balsamic & red balsamic vinegars. I'm confident you'll take some home! And there's 3 different sizes so you can experiment with them at home. Owner, Amber, is brilliant with her knowledge of clean living, baking, & recipes using their oils & vinegars. The selection is very impressive! Like sweet maple or fig vinegars to citrus oils, many of which are awesome when used in beverages & adult mixed drinks! Some recipes can be found on their site: thesouthernolive.comThey even have individually wrapped GF burger & dog rolls, and the best GF sliced bread I've tasted. But it doesn't stop there! The decor is adorned by husband-owner, Nate's masterpieces of live edge tables with forged steel frames and the staff gives it an uplifting vibe. Today they had a special anniversary event serving made to order paninis topped with a dressing you create!I can't say enough about this place other than, "Go!" More...

Completely blown away by this place. I moved to Charlotte last year after a lifetime in the Northeast, where people are slightly more health-conscious and accepting of "weird" diets like my annoying gluten-free one. Upon arriving in North Carolina, I realized that avoiding gluten was going to be a little trickier than it was in Boston, and for the most part, that has definitely held up over the past year...until The Southern Olive entered the scene!I've had the chance to try 2 different cakes from Olive at work events, and they reminded me of my pre-GF days. They are 2 of the best cakes I've ever eaten. The first was a chocolate ganache cake with a stripe of raspberry jam through the middle. The second was a "chocolate-churro" cake that was rich and chocolatey, with a hint of cinnamon and a delicious creamy frosting. I knew that the cakes were gluten-free, obviously, but until doing some research on the Olive's website today, I had no idea that they also don't use any artificial coloring! That is UNHEARD OF in any bakery, and so amazing and important! I don't know what these cakes cost since I have yet to personally buy one, but trust me - they are probably worth double whatever Olive is charging for them. This is the first bakery I've ever heard of to take their work to such an extreme health-conscious and high-quality level, and still create a ridiculously delicious product. I am amazed by Southern Olive! More...

Crazy delicious GF birthday cake...chocolate cake with vanilla icing. Will request icing to be less sweet for the next one, but this was the best GF cake I've ever come across! And guess what? You don't even have to tell your guests it's GF, it's THAT good! More...

I purchased the Lemon Bars and Chocolate Brownies for a Memorial Day BBQ and boy they were the hit of the party. The Lemon Bars are seriously amazing and we’ll be back to get those for many more parties. Also had the new donuts while shopping and they were delish. Kiddos didn’t even miss the not so great ingredients!!! Thanks for giving us a great place to get cleaner foods for our families. More...

I simply adore this shop. I wish you could give more than five stars. Their products are unbelievable! It's such a hidden gem in Indian Land. I once went in there for coffee with a student I mentor and didn't realize they were 15 minutes from closing. The owner saw that we were having a serious heart-to-heart and brought us brownies to eat and told us to stay as long as we needed. We stayed for about another half hour. Before I left, I went up to Amber to tell her how much I appreciated her letting us stay and talk (my student really needed one-on-one encouragement) and she said she was more than happy to do it and that the whole point of their shop was to try and bless the community. LOVE this place. More...

Talk about to die for desserts... this place never disappoints! Even with the vegan desserts my Omni friends and family say they're the best they ever had. As for the olive oil selection it's unmatched. I know when I go there for olive oil I'm getting real olive oil & not the fake processed oils from the grocery store. Their oils add a different dimension to food. I have used them in hummus, salad dressings, & they're even used for baking! MAYBE WHY THEIR BAKED GOODS ARE AMAZING! More...

It is easy to see why this place is rated so high. First impressions are lasting impressions. It is obvious that the store owners take a lot of pride in the appearance of their store. There are a couple of bars or tables to sit at if you wish to enjoy your freshly made latte or something from the bakery. Or if you like, you can do some wine tasting through their affordable wine tasting option, and even buy a bottle if you like! Or you can glance at dozens of the highest quality of organic olive oils and sample them too! Or you can by some non-gluten pasta options. Speaking of gluten free, if that is something important to you, then this place would be heaven sent! The bakery items are all non-gluten! You would never know by the taste! Lastly, they even carry gluten free beer, which is supposed to be pretty good (never tried it).Prices are terrific and you don't feel like you have to make a special trip to the ATM to treat yourself. Truly an awesome place! More...

I just have to take a moment to sing praises for The Southern Olive in Indian Land. We ordered my daughter's birthday cake from them and not only were they so relaxing and easy to work with, but they made a gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free cake that was probably one of the best cakes I've ever had. We all loved it! Such wonderful owners who are not only incredibly talented at what they do, but are just really, really nice. We were supposed to just drop in and pick up the cake, but ended up staying 30 minutes, chatting with them, trying their delightful array of oils and vinegars and looking around. Please go check them out if you haven't yet. Even if you are not gluten free - you will love their goodies (and oils, vinegars, wines, coffees, etc. etc.). I cannot thank them enough. — at The Southern Olive. More...

There were tasting stations for every offering as well as little bread bowls. They're currently having a buy 3 of any size get the 4th free sale. They also had a great little selection of paleo snack options as well as ciders & wines. Highly recommended and the owner was very helpful. More...

She's always baking new treats that are a healthier (and tastier) alternative to most sweets! Everything about the place is just so warm and inviting from the interior design to the owners, Amber & Nate's personalities. They're just wonderful people with a wonderful business who sincerely care about their customers and making it an all around great experience. If you have a few minutes to stop in, I highly suggest it. You won't be dissapointed. More...

I even had the owner and make a gluten-free vegan triple layer chocolate cake for my sons birthday and everyone devoured it. They couldn't believe that it was gluten-free and vegan. If you have not gone you must at least stop in and try everything. They also have a nice coffee bar with a variety of herbal teas as well More...

They also have gluten free and paleo desserts to go with their amazing coffee. (The cheesecake is amazing!)  My friend has broken up with her former coffee place  and now makes this her first stop on the way to work.

UNFAIR & RIDICULOUS of the previous Yelper Cindy to award ANY business 2 stars based off of her PROCRASTINATING nature!!!! Cindy, perhaps during prior educational years (economics) you were napping? Might want to apply to your local CC & take economics for dummies. Clearly, even you would comprehend overhead cost associated with staffing and foot traffic obviously the proprietor is OPEN during hours that warrant staffing. As a business owner myself I get perturbed with folks raking businesses over the coals (2 stars) for ridiculous reasons. #humbleyourselves NOW to tell you the GREAT news!!! The vegan brownie in this place really surprised my husband & I, it was too die for, SOOO yummy!!! It had absolutely NO after taste whatsoever all the while the cocoa flavor was at the forefront. The texture was spot on as it was very chewy. The house blend coffee was really good as it was completely void of ANY bitterness all the contrary it had a great smooth finish. The staff was very accommodating and flexible as they ensured my smoothie did not contain ANY fruits that I am highly allergic too. They read labels and were SUPER attentive and VERY flexible. My strawberry smoothie was very nice, thx ladies. SALADS are NOW being SOLD ...it's a cleaver idea to offer patrons the olive oil & balsamic of their choice for their salads. Can't wait to try! The INTERIOR wood tables are beautiful, I really appreciate the craftsmanship and the creativity behind the wood pieces. Gorgeous!! #supportlocalbusiness #Romewasnotbuiltinaday#smalltownhospitality More...

You walk into Souther Olive and you have walked into olive oil heaven, if you can think it then you will find it. Southern Olive is a small quaint boutique that offers every variety of olive oil and vinegars known to mankind. They offer samples of each type of oil and give suggestions of which oils go with what types of meals. They also offer cakes, coffee and tea and anything that you can't find here, they can always order for you. The prices are going to be a little pricey but I am a firm believer in you get what you pay for. Also, with Publix right next door, I always find an excuse to drop in and visit the staff which is friendly and knowledgeable about all of their products. Definitely a must stop for anyone into healthy eating. More...

The butter olive oil can be a great substitute for anything you normally use butter for, especially on veggies! Their coffees, teas and sweets are also really creative and different from the chain places you typically go to for your daily "pick me up" and well worth going a little out of your way for!! Definitely make the time to stop by and check this place out! You'll be SO glad you did!! � More...

Perfect for Indian Land. 5 stars for the endless variety of oils and vinegars. 5 stars for offering cooking classes. 5 stars for the swanky coffee bar. 5 stars for selling Southern Pecan Coffee. 5 stars for the bakery case and selection, credited to the owner, Amber (husband and wife team).

The Southern Olive is a welcome addition to the Indian Land area.  In a land where everything "Nice" i.e. restaurants, shops, bakeries, pizza etc....is across the border, the Southern Olive brings a hint of class along with it.Walking in, it's not what you'd expect.  The gourmet olive oil selection is awesome and ripe for the sampling.  "Have a taste, buy a case" is a common phrase I use and that's what I see happening here.  You don't know how much you'll like high quality gourmet olive oil until you take a shot of it and savor the experience.  Next, they have gourmet pastas, coffee, trinkets and drinks.  My dear sweet daughter has celiac disease and we struggle to find good, quality baked goods outside of making them ourselves.  The Southern Olive has an answer.  In house, gourmet baked goods that are gluten free.  I spent some time speaking with Amanda the owner.  As others have stated she spent a tremendous amount of time speaking to me about her process and how she bakes.  True passion for her craft was apparent.  She gave my daughter multiple samples and solidified a customer based on a great experience.  Blood orange chocolate cake (gluten free), Lime cupcakes with cherry icing, some sort of loaf that didn't last 2 minutes once we got home all gluten free.  She also put some gluten free "fancy" pasta in a coffee cup for us to take home and taste.  Oh, and she makes smoothies.  Wonderful, all natural, no corn syrup, no color smoothies.  She had some extra from making someone else's order and put it in a cup for us to try.  It was DELICIOUS.  One more thing, the prices are crazy reasonable.  Most of the time people gouge on gluten free and prey on peoples desire to find good quality baked goods.  We walked out there with 2 bakes items for under $5.00 and the fact that it was good, wholesome ingredients is a wonderful thing.I am impressed with this shop and hope the word gets out and this business thrives.  We'll be back and will definitely tell our friends.  Great work, Amanda welcome to the area!

I stopped in, curious about the new business.  Thank goodness I did because it's absolutely adorable.  The owner, Amber, spent a great deal of time explaining the products and offering delicious samples.  The business radiates the owner's passion from the handmade tabletops to the absolutely divine chocolate-blood orange homemade cake.  Extremely knowledgeable and helpful.    I am looking forward to attending some upcoming cooking classes.  Phenomenal girls' night or date night destination. Also a great place to pick up unique housewarming or hostess gifts.  Highly recommended! More...

My caramel latte was well done by the proprietor himself. The bakery items are made by the owners right in the store. The main focus is the many, many specialty infused olive oils and balsamic vinegars. Add to that some custom pasta and you're on your way to an excellent meal. More...
