For more than 26 years, the story of food, grace, and community are vividly brought to life when you step into Babette's Cafe. We are a French restaurant in Atlanta, GA, where you'll forget you're just minutes from downtown Atlanta and swear you've stepped into a French countryside. Inspired by the award-winning film "Babette's Feast," our restaurant combines French, Italian, and Spanish provincial cooking with a rustic, European setting to provide an absolutely delightful setting for an lovely meal. From the film, "This woman, this Chef has the ability to transfer a dinner into a kind of love affair, a love affair that make no distinction between the bodily appetite and the spiritual appetite.

Where to begin? Before you leave your car, your pampering begins. Dear husband and I wanted a long leisurely supper to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary and Babette's exceeded our hopes. Every bite, every sip was wonderful! Even the coffee was one of a kind....More

Babette’s is always consistent and offers a very solid proposal. Ginger is literally the most professional waitress in Atlanta without a doubt. All the small plates are wonderful, as is everything else on the menu. On our last visit, the baguette was a bit stale,...More

Thank you for your nice review. I will be sure to show this to Ginger and will check the bread situation. Can I ask you what day you dined with us?

Excellent food with a menu that changes seasonally. The owner is actively engaged and it really shows, not only in the food she serves, but also in the people that work there.

Thank you so very much for this nice review. I do only have this one restaurant and location. I don't know how other owners open more than one. ??? Crazy.

Benay, I hope you enjoyed your dinner with us, but we have not served brunch since the fall of 2014....Perhaps you were remembering us or you meant to review another restaurant.

I think of Babette's as a neighborhood gem. Unassuming. Quaint exterior. Cozy interior. This is a top choice for a special night our with my better half or with family in from out of town. Food is stellar. Service is top notch. Highly recommend.
