Treated my girlfriend to a surprise breakfast at one of her favourite restaurants. As this was my first time here is was really looking forward to the food. The omelette and croissant was amazing. Freshly prepared right in front of us and light and fluffy!!!

Will definitely have breakfast here again when next in Kalkbay.

Small, unpretentious place with great food, seafood yummy mussels awesome, steak was perfect and a lemon tart so good a return visit was essential! The cook and staff were relaxed and seemed like they actually enjoyed their work

I love this place....the food is brilliant - it has such a wonderful casual feel about it....the view from the window is out of this world.....do yourself a favour and visit this cafe that has been In Kalk Bay for many many years and hopefully many years to come...

Some reviewers want to remove the cafe from its pedestal, but so many Cape Town-ians can't be wrong. The atmosphere is great and the fresh baked goods a treat.If you g et to have one of their signature fresh fish dishes you will understand the popularity of the place. Sure the staff can get a bit quirky at times, but that is also part of the charm of this amazing venue. At quiet times to sit in the window whilst observing the brightly colored fishing boats bobbing to and fro in the harbor is a treat for fatigued tour guides returning from " the point." Despite many european querries about the flaking paint and the proximity of the loos to the kitchen- few people have sucumbed to deli beli from this fine location. You are in South Africa not down town Dusseldorf or Brussels of course.

Olympia has been one of my favourite places for brunch or lunch since it opened years ago. It was pretty rustic, but the food was always fresh, delicious and interesting. I was looking forward to breakfast this morning as I haven't eaten there in a while. The walls are newly painted and the chairs are new, but the food was a shock! Oily omelette drenched in sweet chilli sauce out a bottle.....how sad! What happened to those amazing ingredients you used to use? Hope things are up to standard soon.
