Quail and Olive logo_welcome


Welcome to The Quail & Olive, Carmel Valley’s premier olive oil specialty store. My name is Annelise, I am the owner of The Quail & Olive. My late father, Dr. Stephen Brabeck, was a cardiologist here on the Monterey Peninsula who believed in the health benefits of extra virgin olive oil. He founded our store in September of 2012, making us one of the very first specialty stores offering the highest quality fresh California extra virgin olive oil. Since then we have expanded to offer a wide variety of specialty food products, locally sourced vinegars, kitchen accoutrements, cookbooks, gift selections, skin care and more. Whether you are here for business or pleasure, be sure to stop by and visit us in the Carmel Valley Village; we have something for everyone.

I take pride in working directly with olive oil producers here in California. It is very important to me to source products from smaller farms and family owned businesses. Let us help you with a delicious meal, divine snacks, gift selections and favors for weddings or corporate events. We are here for you!

We are open daily from 12p-5p. Please stop in and say hello, we look forward to assisting you. If you are unable to come by our store, please call us or visit our website, www.quailandolive.com/. We ship throughout the USA.
