Nice lunch restaurant; you can actually carry on a conversation with others at the table. Food is good with nice presentation and portions, especially for ladies. I took a special friend there last week for her birthday. I had called a day ahead and, unfortunately, they did not bring dessert as I had requested, but it is a unique restaurant;... More

As one of the few men to eat at Olexa's, I can speak with some authority. This is not a place where men would be confused with being at Dreamland Barbeque. Having said that, the food is good but relatively expensive especially compared with equally good--or better--restaurants in Mountain Brook. If the stick to their market of catering for weddings,...

They are known for their cake. The choice is white or chocolate. The buttercream frosting is excellent and very generous. Parking is very limited. If you enjoy a great piece of cake, you won't be disappointed.

I recently met friends for lunch at this most memorable lunch spot. The seafood crepe was very flavorful, the salad was plentiful and fresh, and the service was great. My friends ordered the quiche of the day and goat cheese salad. Both were delicious. You will not be disappointed! I will definitely be going back soon!

The decor reminds me of a little Italy. It's a fun place with healthy food selections and a great place to meet for casual or business lunch. It does tend to get crowded at prime lunch time and parking can be challenging. It is well worth it. Great service, amazing vanilla cake. Menu includes quiche selection, salads and yummy sandwiches.... More

Olexa's is only open for lunch. The menu is great and offers a wide variety of choices. Great portion sizes. The best part of lunch is dessert. The warm vanilla cake is the best-not to be missed!
