I think I'll be right to call this place "the smallest and tastiest" of it's kind in Jerusalem. Always crowded because of the quality and service. Different and most tasty kinds of Belgian Waffles, hot beverages and other "sins" of sweet culinary delights !!!!! A MUST - for these "sinners" !!!!!!!!

during the last few years many waffle places have been opened in jerusalem, but non of them matches babette's quality. they are truly an expert in this field, and it's always a good experience to eat there. totally recommended!

My favorite place growing up and still holds magic as a this really tiny piece of jerusalem goodness. Locals know of it as the best place for dessert and winter outings. it's really cramped and small but you always meet new people and good music so it's not an inconvenience. Come when you're in love in the winter.

Babette used to be one of these places that people came to Jerusalem especially for. Think of it as the Soup Nazi of Waffles. People would line up outside this tiny joint at 11PM mid-week to get their tasty, crisp Waffles with unique home-made toppings (My reccomendations: Vanilla cream with hot choclate, Apple sauce with sour cream, cream and cinnamon,...

Waffles are tasty, but surroundings are tacky. No plates, no napkins, no place to sit. If you're under twenty, you'll love it. Over 20, pass.

This place is a central place in becoming a local here in Jerusalem. Even though it has changed a little over the years the awesome waffles are the same! I think the simpler the better, the butter cream is my favorite topping!

I love Babettes!!! The original Jerusalem waffle bar!! The ideal "hole in the wall" amazing place. Trust your friends and these reviews, you will not be disappointed!!! Fresh fruits, delicious sauces and real maple syrup! Every time you go, you could have a different combination!! Enjoy! Perfect stop after hitting the bars before going home.
