First time at Cakes and Ale and was not disappointed! James was an excellent waiter and encouraged us to eat family style and try several dishes. Everything was excellent, but the trout and gnocchi were the best! Great selection of wines and my wife loved...More

Awesome coffee shop! Nice area, friendly staff. They also have a restaurant but this was just a coffee stop for us. Good place to sit, rest, drink coffee and enjoy some quiet time.

We love Cakes & Ale and especially their Cafe! Their cafe has a wine shop and you can buy a bottle and they will chill it and serve with your apps:tapas. They also offer a happy hour which is divine :)

Cakes and Ale has been around a long time in Decatur and remains one of the best restaurants in Decatur. The food is seasonal and always consistant

We have heard of Cakes & Ale for years and were aware of all of the accolades. But on this night I would say they were just really good but not great. Service is very good. Drinks are very good. Atmosphere is very cozy. But...More

A "true foodie find" in Downtown Decatur, chef-owner Billy Allin's American "separates itself" from the usual culinary scene with "fresh", "vivacious" food that "epitomizes the farm-to-table movement", plus "unrivaled" cocktails in a refined, "unassuming" setting.
