This is the place for that special dining experience. Want to grab a quick dinner and grab a late movie. Not here, because the evening will be centered on the experience of being at Café 123. The place for a relaxing dinner, no rush, lots of conversation and truly the best meal in the area. This is the center point... More

This is a fav of ours. Great menu, service and a respectable wine list. Tonight showed why we will always come back . A member of our party fainted and the manager never let us until EMT had left. That's service!

We're from Massachusetts and our daughter is attending Auburn University and after a long drive down we needed some "quality food" before move-in day and we hit the jackpot with Cafe One Twenty-Three. The table-side Caesar salad was delicious and filling with a well-balanced blend of flavors. My wife and daughter split the lamb chops (our daughter raved about the... More

Seated by the window gave us a great view the foot traffic in Opelika. The luscious décor of the restaurant added to the intimate service of the staff. The food was delectable and superbly prepared and presented.

Cafe 123 is a little gem hidden away in the cozy southern town of Opelika, AL. The food is incredible and the wait staff is very attentive. The space is a little small, so we like to go early. They take reservations and you can even choose to reserve a favorite table or booth. Be sure you try their bread... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. I ordered the ribeye that everyone raves about. Once again I received a bad steak. When I spoke to the waiter about my disappointment of my meat his response was " well that is the way ribeye can be sometimes ". Not the response I was looking for. When one pays such... More
