Had a great 5 course meal recommended by our great server. We split everything and a bottle of wine. Decatur is truly a special place. Would go back 10/10 would recommend.

Cakes and Ale enjoys a lot of favorable coverage in the print media. We weren't sure if it would live up to the hype...and unfortunately it failed. I can say the food is nice but this evening we had terrible service. We had an appetizer...More

In town for a conference we sought out this place based on TA reviews. Great atmosphere and superb wait staff made for a nice evening. We enjoyed the quail and gnocchi with chicories on the side + a desert. = $100

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.

Farm to table, small portions, you're lucky we let you in.....and all this for big bucks. The food was OK, quite ordinary and just not worth the bucks. It isn't hard getting good ribs in Atlanta, ones that don't have to break the bank. So...More

Starting with the good - the wine was excellent (sorry, that is about it for tonight). We have enjoyed Cakes and Ale in the past but hadn't been in a couple of years. We stopped in for an early dinner tonight and I would have...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.
