Cakes & Ale, Friday night for one last dinner in the original space before this little piece of heaven goes big time on August 16. Perhaps they already are big time, but now that will be reflected in the physical size of the new location. If you haven't heard, Cakes & Ale is relocating to a bigger space on the square in Decatur. The new restaurant will allow Cakes & Ale to double their seating, as well as offer them the opportunity for a full service bakery on premises. The new spot opens August 16. There are details here.

So, that's it for the little Cakes & Ale on the corner and their handful of tables full of revelers night after night. I look forward to the new space and hope they don't lose that quaint neighborhood feel that made the original space so special. There are very few restaurants that seem to never miss with me, and Cakes and Ale is one of them. I look forward to their ongoing evolution.
