We tried a new place for lunch yesterday - Olexa's in Mountain Brook.  I ate lunch with some friends on Friday, and they were going on and on about the cake from Olexa's.  I looked Olexa's up on the internet and saw they had a cafe and decided to take Chicken Legs to lunch there on Saturday.  

The interior is really cute.  You feel like you are outside in France with all the little bistro's around you.  The menu has lots of selections -salad, soup, quiche, sandwiches, etc.  I opted for the Ultimate Grilled Cheese with Tomato Basil soup.  OMG - the best tomato soup ever!  Chicken Legs got the Almond Chicken Salad Croissant and he said it was the best chicken salad he had ever eaten.  After lunch, we had to try a piece of cake.  On the recommendation of our server, we went with the vanilla cake.  The cake was really good.  It was light and fluffy.  The buttercream on top was perfectly sweet and creamy.  We had a great time and thoroughly enjoyed our entire meal.   I have a feeling we will be going back often - probably as soon as next weekend. ;)

  1. Always fun to get out. Love the atmosphere of this place and of course the food looks yummy.

  2. What a great interior. For a second I really thought that was a courtyard until I finished reading.

  3. I loved the before and after shot of dessert - pictures ARE worth a thousand words! :)
