Olive Kitchen

Published April 9th 2014
A little bit of the Mediterranean in the middle of Sydney
Nestled in the village shops of Breakfast Point is a delightful cafe where you can sit back and enjoy some delicious food whilst pretending you are as far away from Sydney as possible. Breakfast Point is a resort like suburb located on the Parramatta River. When you enter this prestigious enclave you feel as though you should be throwing on your swimmers and looking for the resort's pool! All of the buildings have a plantation like feel to them and you can see on the faces of the locals residents that they are quite smug about their gorgeous domain.

They are probably also quite smug about their village's cafes and restaurants. There is a little strip of yummy looking eateries and right at the front of them is the Olive Kitchen. So if you thought you were entering a resort when you arrived at Breakfast Point, you will now feel as though you have been transported to somewhere on the Mediterranean coast. There are two huge murals on the wall at the Olive Kitchen and if you sit facing them you can pretend that you have left Sydney for a wee while and you are enjoying a holiday on the other side of the world.

The Olive Kitchen is open for breakfast and lunch 7 days a week. The reasonably priced menu has a modern Australian feel with a touch of the Mediterranean thrown in for good measure. Breakfast items cover all of the basics from toast to pancakes up to a Spanish Omelette. At lunch time the menu becomes a lot more interesting. Chilli salted & garlic fried prawns with salad of witlof, fried cauliflower & lemon is one very delicious sounding choice or perhaps you would prefer angel hair pasta with hand picked WA crab, lemon, spicy shellfish bisque, asparagus tips & fried rocket?

Carrot Cake ($6.90)

We had arrived at the Olive Kitchen in time for afternoon tea. The front counter is full of sweet looking morsels made by the famous Papa Pasticceria in nearby Haberfield. However we decided to try some of the house made cakes. The carrot cake was seriously moist and full of walnuts. The cream cheese topping was not too sweet and not too sour, in other words it was just right. The lemon tart went perfectly with the side of cream and the pastry shell was light and flaky, just as it should be.

As you are in the Mediterranean, gelato is also a perfect choice for afternoon tea. The Olive Kitchen has a great selection and it is a popular choice for younger diners. Speaking of younger diners the Olive Kitchen provides colouring pencils and paper to keep them occupied whilst you are enjoying your short break. So if you go to there with your children make sure you ask the friendly staff for some to use.

Mango Gelato

The staff were very friendly and attentive the whole time we were at the Olive Kitchen. It was getting near pack up time when we had arrived but they still offered us great service and nothing seemed to be too much trouble for them. For example when my son spilt his mango gelato all over the table they were there in a flash to wipe it up for us.

So Sydneysiders if you can't afford a trip to a resort or to the Mediterranean, I recommend that you pop over to Breakfast Point, have a wander around the resort and then partake is some delicious fare at the Olive Kitchen. By the way, don't wear your swimmers, you aren't allowed to use the pool at Breakfast Point - it's strictly for residents only!

The wall mural is excellent, really sets the atmosphere of Italy. Love the look of the carrot cake too.
