Cakes & Ale

Husband-and-wife team Billy and Kristin Allin’s Decatur restaurant, Cakes & Ale—named one of the top 10 best restaurants in America by Bon Appetit—focuses on the good things in life. That means fresh, seasonal, local food made from scratch every day—think potato gnocchi, saltimbocca with braised greens and polenta, and pastry chef Cynthia Wong’s delicious Phatty Cakes (pictured) featuring ginger cookies and a mascarpone center. Yum! 254 W. Ponce de Leon Ave., Decatur, 404-377-7994, www.cakesandalerestaurant.com.
