Olympia Cafe Deli

Going original. Loving a legend.
The Kalk Bay original that the others try to emulate. Others might be cleaner or have more demure waitrons but this has all the energy and damn tasty food that put it on the map 15 years ago. "A legend in our own lunchtime," as the chalkboard outside proclaims. Originally built as a theatre, the building that now houses the bakery is in its orginal form. Look up above the flour and pastry to the mezzanine above to imagine the Apartheid-era times when the 'coloureds', segregated from the whites below, could spit or drop chewing gum, according to local lore.
