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