Olympia Cafe is a Kalk Bay institution. Of the good kind. With food of the great kind and waitrons of the interesting kind.
One of my favourite restaurant in the hood, the staff is super friendly ( and hilarious !) the food is fresh and delicious, changing according to fresh ingredients arrived in the kitchen. The vibe is great with an almost view on the harbour and a real view on the open kitchen. There is also a small yard at the back, quieter. The menu is changing and always well thought. I absolutely recommend it ( and i took all people from overseas there !)
This is my default setting when I need a friendly, hearty meal that I know will be good. Although elements of the menu change frequently depending on seasons and what fish has been caught that day (it's across the road from Kalk Bay harbour), the favorites remain, including the best mashed potato in the city. For me one of the best parts of the experience is the waiters, many of whom have been there for years, calmly navigating the chaos with wit and irreverence.
Best Food in False Bay. Awesome small menu with Vegetarian, Seafood and Meat options. Everything is quality as well as no frills to it, just great food made with care!
Nothing that exciting on the breakfast menu. Pastries below average. Service ranged between over familiar (I'm not "love" or "darling") and non-existent. Seems to be consistently full though, so I doubt it will change - but really not worth it overall.
Well done guys!!!! Absolutely brilliant. Love your setting and food. Although service is a bit slow - so what. Take it in your stride. Love it - will be back soon!
