Even if you've already dined down the way at the Iberian Pig or Leon's Full Service, it's worth stopping by Cakes & Ales for dessert and an aperitif. The banana terrine and apple galette are both worth every calorie. Cakes & Ales also serves dinner with attractions like pork belly, lamb gnocchi, quail, goat gnocchi, beef tongue, or burrata, if you haven't eaten dinner yet. Bear in mind that portions are small, giving you an excuse to try more. There are a few specialty cocktails on the spirits list, which emphasizes bourbon, Scotch, American whiskey, and rye. You'll want to camp out all day in the cozy, rustic, and laid-back space: With its reclaimed wood, simple lighting, and concrete bar top, it's minimalist design at its finest. The Bakery at Cakes & Ales, an adjacent space opened after the original's smash success, serves brunch and lunch from 11:30am to 2:30pm Tuesday through Saturday. There's a seasonal quiche, a daily special like smoked trout, and a regular offering of dishes like a Monte Cristo or tomato, okra, and pea salad. You can also pick up fresh breads, scones, muffins, or sticky buns from the café to take home with you.
