I popped in last Thursday at 11h00 hoping for a quick coffee. There were plenty of free tables. I tried to get the attention of several staff members but got the impression that it wasn't their problem. I believe that the "meet, greet and seat"...More

Obviously the place to go in town for breakfast. It was busy and the fry-ups on offer were hearty and looked tasty. Unusually for me I restricted myself to coffee (good) and an almond meringue (dry). The atmosphere was fun though and a bohemian cried...More

Olympia cafe is my usual stop when I visit Kalk bay. Great food, coffee and vibe. It's just disappointing and upsetting that the service is terrible, never checking up on guests or following up with the customers. Staff is to busy making jokes with each...More

I've been patronizing Olympia Cafe for more years than I care to remember. I've been there in high season, low season, and for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Yes, it's grungy, and yes, it is very noisy (especially in summer, when it's packed pretty much all...More

Considering the rave reviews on this place, I was less than impressed. Granted, I visited on a Sunday morning, which is probably their busiest time all week. But the place was heaving and incredibly loud. Clearly it's a regular hangout for a whole bunch of...More
