Outstanding food, we decide to take our staff for a local meal before heading to the airport. We all had the seafood linguine, it was so good. The service, the relaxed atmosphere the view. Absolutely worth the trip.

A local friend of ours took us to this laid back restaurant for dinner- try the mussels or the seafood pasta- you won't be disappointed. You can't book, but it is worth the wait, and it's relaxed and happy and loud. Fabulous!

This is a good place for cake and coffee. It’s quite casual with friendly service. We had poppyseed cake and carrot cake. We have been here twice. They also have a bakery.

Very nice staff. The food was really good (we went for breakfast). The only downside is that they don't have highchairs for babies and toddlers so our daughter had to sit on our laps while the other person ate.

We were told to go here by a friend. When we arrived I did not realise this was somewhat a dive. The mussels were absolutely great. The dessert was great. The service was nice. This is a typical local dive with great food. Do not...More

Came back to Kalk Bay and Olympia after being there a few years ago. The place is a bit tired and grungy now but the coffee and food (the pastries) and service are still top notch. Would try some of the other cafes in the...More
