Olympia cafe

went on a cycling trip on the other side of the peninsula to Kalk Bay ,  a small but beautiful seaside little town , with a few cafes and restaurants, i stoped at Olympia cafe , a cute little place serving fresh food in a bistro kinda vibe, they also have a bakery  in the same building but the entrance is at the other corner of the street …  i heard the cafe were doing one of the best Seafood pasta around so i had to check it for myself …  sometimes in a tomato sauce and others in creamy sauce , as a special it is daily changing …

i sat down on the only table outside LOL can’t really call that a terrace but i needed to keep an eye on my bicycle so i took it😜 , the cafe was quite busy at this time ,but the waiting staff seem organised and was coping we’ll with the demand , i ordered straight away the seafood pasta  , its not like I’m coming indecisive ! right at this moment the waiter went through all the ingredients of the dish to make sure there wasn’t any misunderstanding or food allergy etc…

SEAFOOD PASTA

the food arrived promptly … a very generous portion of really creamy pasta perfectly cooked along with a fresh and very tasty seafood ! the flavours and texture worked well together with a little chilli kick to it … overall very enjoyable dish , definitely not for dieters though ;P

then i left and at the other corner of the street i stumble upon the olympia bakery ! perfect for my dessert treat ! a lot of different breads on offer , and also quite the wide range of cakes and pastry … also very cheap !! i hesitated for a little bit but then i decided to go with the cinnamon twist sorta pastry , the waitress said another name but couldn’t really catch it 😅

then i headed just a couple of second from there to st james beach to enjoy my after meal treat …

i have to say i really enjoyed this pastry !i usual don’t mention prices but this was 15 rands!! wich is quite ridiculously cheap ! when i think i often paid the equivalent of 50 to 70 rands for tasteless pastry 😑 this one was  crispy outside and fluffy inside with a yummy cinnamon flavour , it was totally on point , not to mention that the view was pretty awesome too😍


overall enjoyable experience at olympia cafe , i would gladly go back and try other items on there menu as well as more sweet treats !!
