I came here during my first year in Atlanta, due to a recommendation from a co-worker at the time. We found it very average then. Fast forward 15 years: I have a friend who lives equidistant from Inman Park, as I do. We decided that would be a good area to meet for brunch. I mentioin Babette's cuz we both... More

As a long time Atlanta area resident and former local college student, I've met friends many times for beer and a burger at Manuel's Tavern on North Highland in Atlanta. Somehow, I've overlooked Babette's Cafe, just across the street!! I'm happy to report that my wife and I celebrated our fortieth wedding anniversary there last weekend, and can't wait to... More

As big fans of the movie "Babette's Feast" my husband & I couldn't resist trying it for that reason alone. The reviews all gave us a nice "heads up" not to be intimidated by the valet parking--it really was no trouble. Our efficient waiter soon warmed up and delivered excellent service & even a little engaging interaction. We loved the... More

My daughter and I visited the north Atlanta suburb of Decatur to explore Emory University before her first semester of grad school. We used reviews in the weeks before our visit to select a few Decatur restaurants to try. My pick was Babette’s Café for Sunday Brunch. Reviewers appreciated the atmosphere (salon/cottage-in-the-city/just plain pretty) and the beautifully cooked food. I... More

We just returned from a delicious Sunday brunch at Babette's. This is not our first visit to this restaurant, but it is the first brunch we have had. The food was delicious and the server just right. I would have given 5 stars if the atmosphere had been better, but it was noisy and crowded and bustly, even including a... More

When it came to deciding a restaurant for a rare 'date night' with my husband, we toyed with the idea of going to some new place but instead opted for our old favorite and it did not disappoint. The setting: It's a lovely and warm room, painted a muted yellow/gold with large oil paintings and some hanging copper pots. The... More

This is a great date spot. Very quaint and romantic. Ive only ever ordered their fish and seafood dishes,but they were all fantastic. Also, the potato chip with gorgonzola was super tasty!

Everything - from the ambiance, service, and most of all the exquiste food - was just exceptional. We went there for Valentine's Day and found it to be the perfect restaurant for a wonderful meal in a quiet setting. We will be back!
