Last weekend, since we were already going to be in the area for the birthday party at Stephanie and Julio's house, we made a stop at the olive mill to replenish our supply and found the place - on a Saturday around lunch time in the middle of spring in Phoenix (i.e., nice weather) - to be crazy busy. More than we'd ever seen before. It also looked like they'd expanded their store and cafe since the last time we were there.
It was hard for us to enjoy it as much as before with how crowded it was, although I'm sure it's good business for the olive mill. Greg said he thought the charm was gone and didn't think he'd go back. I don't know if I'd go as far as not going back (even if they did stop serving bread to sample with the olive oil), but in any case, we picked up some roasted garlic and white truffle olive oils, as well as bacon olive oil. The bacon olive oil should be interesting to try . . .
