Summer Time In The Square

Along with this hot summer comes fresh & local fruits and vegetables.  Here at Cakes & Ale we are using them as many ways as possible!  We are using Georgia peaches in salads, sandwiches, desserts, pastries & preserves. You will find fresh blackberries & blueberries in our desserts & breakfast pastries. The Bakery is happy to offer hot snacks as well as plated desserts starting at 6 pm.  The snacks include arancini, rosemary roasted almonds & citrus marinated olives.
