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…


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 !!
