“Best brekfast”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Visiting Kalk Bay regularly we breakfast here every time. A fantastic choice of hot and cold breakfasts. The service is second to none having watched the same servers for at least ten years. Visited mainly by the locals, everyone is welcomed in the same way. The only breaky joint in Kalk bay !!

“Amazing breakfast/brunch & delicious coffee”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Great place for brekky or brunch on Sunday morning. Everything from the gorgeous views of Kalk bay, the speedy service, the delicious food, the tasty coffee and the great value are all reasons why I love this place! Try a stuffed crossiant, you will love it!

“Best coffee, harbour views and open early!!!”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

If your an early bird there are not many places open at 6:30 am in winter in Cape Town but the Olympia cafe is one of them.
Coffee is the best we have had in CT as are the almond croissants. How special to watch the sunrise over the ocean, sip divine coffee and munch on a croissant not long out the oven :)
Quirky and bohemian - yes. Sophicated and sparkling clean - no.

“Consistently Delicious food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Not surprising that it is the only restaurant on this strip that is full throughout winter as well as summer. The ideal combination of well priced and "un-ponsy", deliciously tasty food, cooked to perfection. PLUS the quirkiness of the place - is a call back time and again.

“Cape Town it its best”
Reviewed May 27, 2013

Olympia Cafe is always on my list of must-visit places when I visit Cape Town. The food is excellent, staff are friendly and helpful and the setting is wonderful. This place is the essence of what the true Cape Town lifestyle is like. The mussels are the best I have ever tasted and the lemon tart is to die for. Go early to get a table.
