Review

The first thing you’ll notice when you enter Café Olga is the delicious smell coming from the tiny kitchen. Located south of Moran State Park in a former a strawberry cannery, the place is small and very popular, so don’t be surprised if you have to wait for a place to sit. Luckily, the café is housed within Orcas Islands Artworks and is downstairs from a bookstore, so there are plenty of ways to pass the time.

Don’t be surprised also if a fellow diner gobbles up the last of the homemade cinnamon rolls. These are so popular they’ve been known to sell out an hour after they’ve been baked. You may also notice fellow diners ordering a variety of freshly baked homemade pies, a Café Olga hallmark. Typical pie offerings, which vary daily, include blackberry, lemon Shaker, and a French chocolate. The lemon Shaker pie is a tart pie that uses the whole lemon, including the peel. The French chocolate pie has a baked chocolate crust with layers of chocolate mouse and chocolate shavings.

Entrees are healthful and presented beautifully. The smoked salmon salad is wonderful, served with two crescent rolls, salmon lox and dill cream cheese. Sandwiches range from the basic, such as hot pastrami, to the inventive roasted eggplant and hummus. The breakfast menu is limited -- with an option of baked eggs, eggs rancheros, a bowl of hearty granola, or a healthy breakfast milkshake.

Take out orders are frowned upon as the kitchen is too small to accommodate the demand. The café serves breakfast and lunch all day from 10 a.m. until 5:30 p.m. Café Olga closes in January and February for the winter season.
