“Did I Just Pay $24.95 for a Veggie Burger?”
Reviewed May 3, 2013 via mobile

I did...and it was only okay. My dining companion ordered a tofu avocado sandwich for nearly $20 and it too was only okay. The food is formulaic and soulless. I eat there maybe twice a year and always feel under satisfied and over charged. I think this was the last time. I imagine that the rent there has to be astronomical (it's on a main shopping street in the Village of East Hampton) but still, it's just too much for sub par food.

“Expensive Brunch”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

I'm torn with my opinion of Babette's. I love that they have healthy choices and great juices but it comes at a high price. The food is good but WOW the prices are higher than you will find in Manhattan. We like to visit at least once during our trips to EH to enjoy brunch. You will find a wait generally on the weekends for brunch and you will be with the trendy set of EH. If you want to be seen and see, this is the place for bruch. Just be ready to pay top dollar.

“Eh. Nice healthy alternative. Kind of annoying, tho”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

It's always nice to have Babettes to go to, when you want something healthier for lunch. It's a creative kitchen. Kudos to them on that! But I think they should take themselves a leeeetle less seriously, and lower their prices by about 20 percent.

“GREAT brunch”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

We've only ever had brunch but the food is fantastic and they offer many healthy options... The best part is those "healthy" options are just as tasty as the heavier fare. Plus the location is great if you plan to do a little shopping after brunch.

“Awful”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

Breakfast was absolutely terrible - ordered bacon and eggs - pretty standard fare one would think. There was not one redeeming quality from the food to the service. Totally packed small, noisy space. The food was presumably organic, however, not a single bite was appealing. Eggs soggy, fake bacon, stale toast, terrible coffee - would never return! Prices outrageous.......
