Front Burner: Cakes & Ale moves, Cozy Burger Town opens

Phatty Cakes at Cakes & Ale

Phatty Cakes at Cakes & Ale

Billy and Kristin Allin plan to move their popular Decatur eatery, Cakes & Ale, from its current location on W. Ponce de Leon Ave. to three storefronts on the Church St. side of Decatur Square. The move will allow the restaurant’s talented pastry chef, Cynthia Wong, to fulfill a longtime dream of opening a standalone pastry shop next to the restaurant. She plans to serve pastries and light meals throughout the day and then turn it into a dessert bar at night. Gumshoe blogger Decatur Metro has the scoop.

In other news:

  • Cozy Burger Town has opened  at 2641 N. Decatur Road in Decatur. It takes over the defunct One Love Cafe Jamaican restaurant in a once-upon-a-time Pizza Hut. We love the name, right?
  • Speaking of Jamaican food and fantastic names, The Village Jerk Cafe will serve Caribbean food from My Sister’s Room, a bar in East Atlanta Village at 1271 Glenwood Ave. What Now Atlanta has this story.
  • Go tell Bill Addison where to eat barbecue, besides Ms. Betty’s.

I simply must try that Cakes & Ale place. I’ve read about it before and it caught my eye. I’m a fool when it comes to desserts and I’m head over heels in love with dessert bars. Dessert bars are so inviting and fun. They are also hard to find.

Cakes and Ale: so wonderful. If it’s bigger, and a yummy part is open all day long: wow.
I saw a post on the link to Decatur Metro where a guy was offering to go right on over with a crowbar and wheel barrow to help out with demolition and renovation, and I get that.

Wait a minute! Is this the same Cozy’s as 8th & Broadway near Washington Square Park? Holy crap, that would be awesome!
