If you like authentic French cuisine, this will become your favorite cafe! Not for the diet conscious but an amazing meal every visit. Alsace is my favorite 'special occasion' restaurant! The owners know hospitality and remember you! Try the pear bread pudding if you're lucky enough to visit on a night it's in the dessert rotation! Their French wines are... More

Café Alsace is a genuine taste of France right here in . . . Atlanta. At home in Decatur, Georgia, an Atlanta suburb, since 1997, Café Alsace is a wonderful find. Café Alsace is another one of those special little places you like to call your own. The café is small and seating is limited, but they do accept reservations.... More

This cozy gem in downtown Decatur is always great. The owner is from the Alsace region of France and the whole menu will take you on a little trip overseas. I like the lunches, with perfect portions of quiche, crepes, or delicious homemade soups, but it's even better for dinner. Rich stews, slow roasted meats, onion tarts, homemade pate, and... More

What a great little surprise in Decatur, GA! We go to Decatur regularly for festivals, shopping and good food and have walked by this gem so many times and never knew it was there. Could be mistaken for a small specialty shop if you're not paying attention (and they do have some cute goodies for sale), but the food is... More

Stopped in for lunch with my boss on my last business trip. French cuisine all the way! I understand the owner is from France, and has recreated a French bistro right in downtown Decatur. The food is superior - exactly what you would expect from a French bistro! I will definitely return to sample the entire menu!

Well, it's cute, and the food is good. After getting married I discovered that anything the wife says is "cute" is something I should hold in high regard. A real estate agent would call the restaurant "cozy". It is, and the food is good.

I went late (after 9). There was only one other table there. I got the veal scaloppine . And the salad with the fig dressing. And the honey lavender ice cream. All of it was amazing. Better than some of the food I had in Paris this summer. I want to go back and have everything on the menu because... More

I was delighted in the atmosphere and food at this quaint but impressive cafe. Lunch was perfect and it really did put me back in France if only for a meal.
