Apart from the harbour, Olympia Bakery is probably one of the best known spots to visit when making a trip to Kalk Bay. It’s got two sections. From the main road, you enter the cafe area where you can sit, relax, order food and drinks and pastries and look out over the street. Then there’s the back end. You enter from the parking lot and you’re surrounded by baskets full of bread and the most tempting sweet treats imaginable.
I like the back-end quite a lot. Here you order takeaway Truth coffees, grab a pastry or a ready-made sandwich and head on off again. But I quite like hanging out on the two chairs and one tiny windowsill-table and watching as customers come and go.
