Since loading the new Lifestyle, Food & Decor category to the StyleScoop nav bar, I figured that it would be nice to feature some of my favorite places to eat. Something I hope to add to more often, because gals like us, who enjoy dressing up and looking good also love to enjoy life’s other little pleasures, like amazing food.
My hubby and I have made a point to discover new and interesting places for weekend brunches, and although I’ll be featuring mostly Durban spots, today I’ll share my all-time favourite spot in Cape Town. Olympia Cafe in Kalk Bay…
First off, I have to say that Kalk Bay is one of my favourite spots in Cape Town. I could spend days in this beautiful, old town with it’s antique shops and village-style charisma. It kinda reminds me of Europe and if you have a chance to visit Cape Town, do yourself a favour and check it out.
While you’re there you absolutely have, have, have to go to Olympia Cafe! While the decor may be quite simple with wooden tables and nothing really fancy, the food is absolutely amazing! So amazing, you’ll be thinking about it over and over again. To this day, Olympia Cafe remains one of my fave CT spots of all time, and I last visited it in November last year – so that’s got to say something!
While vintage-styled menu’s and good ol’ chalk board specials may not scream fabulous, the food, it’s presentation and the portion sizes definitely do!
When hubz and I went there for breakfast, we both ordered the French Toasted Croissant. Mama Mia, it was deee-licous! Piled -and I do mean piled- with gigantic fresh strawberries, mascarpone cheese and honey, it definitely hit the spot!
