One-off shops 2- Olives et al, Poundbury, Dorchester

If you're an olive oil or olive aficionado this really is the place to visit. The products can be sampled before you buy, while the love and care put into the presentation make it a rare pleasure to browse.
With all that fine food on hand it goes without saying the cafe is excellent-my tip...try the flapjack.
