Eating Green is Eating Good

I love good food! I had the pleasure of dining at Cakes & Ale in Decatur, GA last night. The name is inspired from Shakespeare's Twelfth Night. What an awesome (chalkboard) menu of seasonal, fresh, quality ingredients that support local growers and farms. Really excellent local, home-made cooking that is paired with an equally green & serene interior of salvaged tables and fixtures. Chef Billy can tell you which vegetables came from which farmer. For desert, the Phatty Cakes are amazing spiced woopies of mascarpone goodness. Support restaurants that support small or local farms and you'll be rewarded in many ways!
