Home for the Holidays
Diane Olexa grew up watching her mother create beautiful wedding cakes and wonderful food for brides on their special day. She created her first wedding cake at the age of 22, as a gift to a college roommate in 1993. Realizing a love for the creative art, Diane began her own business in the kitchen of her alma mater, Southeastern Bible College in Birmingham.
In 1996, her business expanded to include corporate and social event catering as she and her mother joined creative forces. Diane remembers one reception where a wedding guest approached her and complimented, “Everything is so delicious; where can we go to eat your food?” Olexa’s Café Cakes, and Catering, nestled in quaint Mountain Brook Village, was opened in 2004 to serve guests daily. Clients and customers can now experience a charming ambiance in a European café setting. Guests enjoy homemade quiche, soups, creative salads, warm panini sandwiches, great chicken salad and the best desserts including Olexa’s renowned butter creme cakes and warm white chocolate chunk bread pudding! Olexa’s also offers family Meal Packages and Decorate at home cake kits perfect for the holidays. We invite you to experience Olexa’s where you can enjoy great food, great atmosphere, and a sweet spirit whether for lunch, a special party, or rehearsal dinner.
