Excellent dish and great atmosphere. A must if visiting Birmingham. A bit pricey. Make sure to try their cakes and take hime some cookies for later.

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!

Absolutely delicious!! Very nice atmosphere. I got the almond chicken salad with curry and green onions on greens with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. The sides were a large bowl of very fresh fruit consisting of pineapple, watermelon, grapes, kiwi, strawberries, blueberries and cantaloupe and a mini cranberry orange muffin. There was another choice of a morning glory mini muffin that was... More

No shopping trip to Birmingham is complete without a lunch stop at this fine jewel. It is a quaint deli/bakery with a french flair that will not disappoint. My daughter and I always stop here for lunch (everything is so "delish" I just can't pick a favorite). However, I will say NO stop is complete without a piece of their... More

The inside is decorated adorable, and the service was excellent! Our waiter was so attentive and friendly. I had the chicken crepes with... More

Our waitress was great! She topped off our glasses before they ran dry and the food...was incredibly tastey! Definitely a great place to stop for an afternoon date without the kids as tables are a bit close together.

Thank Aeaddy
