Anticipation is high and Topekans are salivating for a taste of Mediterranean; Olive Cafe will have it’s soft opening the second week of July before officially opening their doors to the public. The restaurant will offer a variety of Mediterranean staples and is located at 935 S Kansas Ave (previously Subway on the corner of 10th and Kansas Ave) is owned by Tony Mashall.
seveneightfive readers may recall articles, social posts and live videos sharing THE BEST GYRO in town (THE BEST) which could be found at Tony’s Gas Station (6th + Lane) and prior to that inside the convenience store located at 29th + SW Randolph Ave. This is that Tony who made that gyro and we still rave about it. To be fair, if we only knew the gyro was the gateway to this explosion of flavors, we’d have been begging Tony to open his own restaurant for over a decade.
an absolute fantastic addition to downtown Topeka.
Olive Cafe owner Tony invited seveneightfive‘s Jacob Hodge to his home for a cuisine sneak peek. The three-hour lunch was exactly what it should be: explosive flavors, colors, ingredients, laughter and love.
