Sadly we go there at the crossover between breakfast and lunch. The lunch menu did not appeal and those tail end breakfasts that were being served looked scrumptious. Definitely going back for some of that. So, we went straight to the desserts, rather small slices ( this is not a bad thing ) but oh so delicious and the coffee is good. The service is friendly and you better be in the mood for some vibey noise. Loved the experience and will be back. You can also do some really nice arts and crafts shopping outside the 'red' door at the take away section, which also has a lot of delicate temptations to wet your appetite.
Oh, if you time it wrong, be prepared for a wait to get in.

Every time I go to South Africa (regularly), no matter how busy I am, I always make time to pop in to Olympia - without doubt my favourite brekkie place in Cape Town! Always vibey, lots to eat and I've never had a bad meal yet! Just love it above all brekkie places even in my hometown!

I was not impressed with the service nor the food at this Kalk Bay restaurant. I found their staff to be rude and highly defensive when i complained that my food was cold. Will probably choose to dine somewhere else when I am back in the area,as there are many fantastic establishments there.

This is a gem in Kalk Bay. We didn't have to wait in a line and received excellent service. Which was surprising considering that many people have complained about the Saturday morning rush. I'd suggest sitting at the window seat in the corner (if you can get it) and spend the morning reading the paper, people watching and savouring a wholesome breakfast.

Always busy, always vibey and always fresh! The team is great fun, always full of energy and smiles and makes you keep wanting to go back. their menu specials change regularly, but they always offer their delicious mussels in a creamy white wine sauce which are well worth a try! They are pet friendly and even bring you a bowl of water for your four legged friend, which is always nice. really feels like home away from home. don't forget to buy some pastries and breads at the Olympia Cafe bakery around the corner.
