New Feature!



The name of this restaurant references a line of Shakespeare's, and though it does have its own sunny little bakery (which shares a similar vibe to Thomas Keller's Bouchon), the restaurant is neither pub nor bakery. Instead, Decatur's Cakes & Ale focuses on producing a rotating menu of contemporary, seasonal, American-fusion plates. Whole-roasted fish, local meats and fresh-plucked veggies dictate the menu. Well-executed dishes benefit from unexpected ingredients (a dollop of green harissa here, a drizzle of fennel pollen or raab paste there) and from the well-curated list of wide-ranging wines. Snag one of the baked goodies at the bakery next door for dessert or an impromptu snack.
