Real food is served here in addition to mochas and other upscale cafe favorites. This casual spot is a pleasant cross between an espresso bar and restaurant. It caters to a mixed clientele, and the morning menu includes everything from espresso and fresh-baked pastry (a house specialty) to omelets. Local influences are visible in some of the options, while more healthy California cuisine is also available. Lunch entrees can be as simple as a burger and fries or as complicated as a Pan-Asian seafood creation.
We used to make a habit of dining at the Olympic Cafe during our many vacations on Kauai, but this last visit was terrible. The manageress on shift was extremely unpleasant to our party of 17 and she had very poor customer relation skills. She chose to roll her eyes and talk over us instead of listening to what we were attempting to explain and we ended up seated throughout the restaurant instead of together or even close to each other.
The food was on a par with our previous visits, only adequate. I advise sticking to the breakfast as it seems to be the most flavourable. Pricing is steep on many menu items and the menu is way too big. A smaller menu would allow for a better quality of dishes.
We won't be returning to the Olympic Cafe nor recommending it to our family and friends.
The wait staff is so friendly. great beginning to a great day.Unique menu. We have visited this establishment when it was down the road at street level, and have gone back every year for breakfast and to talk to the excellent staff. They are informative and kind.
My wife ordered the tropical salad. After taking three bites of it, she complained to the server that the salad tasted terrible. The server took the salad away and said she would speak to her manager about it. About ten minutes later, the server gave us a bill charging us for the inedible salad -- without offering a replacement.
We complained out server, but she just shrugged her shoulders and said the manager said that there was nothing she could do. A fair and adequate resolution would have been to either not charge us for the salad or give us the option of replacing the salad with another item.
I cannot believe that we were charged for a salad that we barely ate. That was a really crummy way to treat customers-- particularly for my wife who is five months pregnant and essentially left their establishment hungry. Olympic Cafe-- SHAME ON YOU.
Let me start with saying that the waitress was very sweet and accomodating. I am allergic to gluten and she took my order with corn tortillas instead of wheat. Somewhere the order went wrong and as someone who was either the manager or owner stopped by to see how things were as our food was delivered I brought up the minor mishap. He forcefully sighed at my request for a correction and rolled his eyes as he walked away. He transfered the food from wheat to corn tortillas and dropped it back on the table a moment later. I told him I am sorry for being difficult, but my reaction would still trigger from the wheat leftover in the transfer to which he made his annoyance with me as visibly known as possible. The peacemaker in me offered to pick another item if it was easier. At which time he let out an angry huff, picked up the plate with one last eye roll and stomped away to the kitchen sending a waitress over with a menu and noticably avoided acknowledging our table the rest of the evening. If you have any special accomodations or would prefer not to be treated poorly by management I would recommend avoiding Olympic all together.
THE FOOD IS USUALLY GREAT/PRICES, BUT TONIGHT THE FEJITAS WERE TERRIBLE!!NO FLAVOR, BEANS TASTED LIKE MOLD, OLD/DRIED TORTILLAS, QUCAMOLE TASTED SOUR? PAID $25. FOR MYSELF AND THREW THE MEAL OUT AFTER TWO BITES. NO ENERGY WENT INTO THIS MEAL SO, WHO IS IN THE KITCHEN???? YUCKKKK MEAL I WIL GO SOMEWHERE ELSE TO EAT THE MEAL.
Food is some times ok...Service is horrible!!!
I had the tuna and it tasted very metally not like any tuna I 've ever had....I sent it back and asked if i was normally like that or is the fish went bad. The owner...short, causcasian man with black hair told me that yes, that's how its suppose to taste. And that I didn't know good tuna...Needless to say...I payed the bill and in 4 years, Ive gone back once because no where else was serving at 8:45 PM...
Can't beat the window seating. Food was not bad. Can see the downtown Kapaa from where one is seating. Nice atmosphere. Like everything restaurant in Kauai, I thought the prices were a bit on the pricey side.
