The Olive Branch Coffee Shop, situated at the epicentre of Diep River, is popular among discerning Cape Town foodies. The quaint eatery is known for delicious and healthy meals – from wholesome breakfasts to light snacks and hearty lunch specials.

Walking into the Olive Branch Coffee Shop is akin to that of a Parisian café. It is quaint and picturesque, with old-timey clocks and pretty paintings adorning the walls. Diners can enjoy a coffee while reading the newspaper, or share a home-baked treat during catch-ups with friends.


The Olive Branch Coffee Shop’s all-day breakfasts make it a restaurant of choice for late-risers who are in the mood for brunch. The ‘Deluxe Breakfast’ is a traditional fry-up of epic proportions, comprising of two eggs, three rashers of bacon, grilled tomato, breakfast sausages, mushrooms and two slices of toast. The meal includes your choice of either tea or coffee.

Diners looking for a light lunch can opt for a crunchy tuna mayonnaise open sandwich, served on either rye or health bread, and with a side of salad. If you’re looking for something a little heartier, ask your waitress about the daily lunch specials.


The health-conscious can choose from a selection of innovative salads. Opt for the restaurant’s signature ‘Olive Branch Salad’. The dish comprises of lettuce, topped with tomato, cucumber, carrot strips, onion rings, bacon, sautéed mushroom and mozzarella cheese trimmings.

Diners looking for a sweet treat or a pick-me-up during the afternoon slump can enjoy slices of double-layered cakes, accompanied by cappuccinos and café lattes. Opt for the homemade sweet potato or the decadent chocolate cake. If you’re in the mood for something less rich, fresh muffins and scones are also up for the taking.
