They have the best cakes ever!! They can do almost any kind of design that you request, and it is always flawless! The food in the cafe is also yummy, but it is a bit small inside so it fills up quickly at lunch!

Olexa's is well known for its wonderful cakes, but has a great lunch menu as well. Many other bakery treats available. A nice "ladies lunchroom" type atmosphere.

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...More
