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
