We certainly were surprised to find a very authentic Alsatian dining experience in the heart of Decatur. The owner/chef is from Colmar, and she remains very committed to serving up meals that are not only authentic and reflect her heritage, but also excellent in every...More

I loved everything about Cafe Alsace: the intimate setting, the kaleidoscope of French/Alsatian decor, huge Catherine Deneuve portrait, traditional music and...the food, the food, the food!
