The Back Story
Olivia Farnsworth lived in a small cottage along Turtle Krawl, upwind of the strip in Old Key West. Almost daily, she would invite curious passerby's who smelled her cooking to come on in and pull up a chair. People loved her vibrant flavors and earthly personality, and before long she found herself setting more tables.
Eventually, Olivia opened the doors to her eponymous café, which has been a haven for locals and a must for out-of-towners ever since.
So when planning dining reservations for your next Walt Disney World vacation, consider dining at Olivia's Cafe. You won't be disappointed.
