50 years ago, Pete and Ann Craig displayed several jars of olives on a small shelf of the original Olive Pit – a frosty and hamburger stand – to see if any one would be interested in buying their locally grown, locally produced olives. People were quick to purchase the olives and a Corning tradition was born.Olive Pit is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , international travel planner Edition.
Today the Craig family, including Ann, still serves travelers with tasty frosties and delicious olive burgers – their store has expanded five times to meet the demands of hungry visitors. The inventory has also expanded and now includes a variety of Olives, Olive Oils, Nuts, Vinegars, Mustards and Gift Items – local products that will liven up any meal, from a quiet meal for two to a large gathering of friends and family.

I have driven past this place for decades and finally stopped in. Such a great selection of olives. But i really enjoyed the Irish cream milk shake. Stop in and spend some dough

This was the main reason I stopped in corning, needless to say if you love olives this is the place to be. I love the different variety of Olives that you simply won't find in a normal grocery store, the dry black olives, the jalapeno cream cheese stuffed olive, etc. Also the cafe is great, try the mufeta Olive sandwich, and an olive oil milkshake.
I love stopping by this place anytime I'm passing through. I love their balsamic vinegars. My sister loves the jalapeno stuffed olives. I did try out their food this time. I went with a turkey sandwich. It was not only delicious but I was quite happy with the portion.
