We sat on the back porch, peaceful... Food was delicious, chef baked a special birthday cake for us and hosts request. Wow, that was special, what a treat. Service good, food great, value good. No complaints.

Everything was beyond our expectations, from the corn chowder with lump crab meat, followed by clams casino and finished off with veal piccata, every dish was amazing. Will certainly be back with friends soon.

I am a vegetarian and this restaurant has one vegetable plate, which doesn't change that often. I was there recently and ordered a few sides of vegetables. The serving size was ridiculously small and was $7, which is not cheap. Unless you order the vegetable...More

I am so sorry that this was your experience with our vegetable options. Our vegetable plate does change with the seasons and this version is pretty new. It is a more affordable option than ordering individual sides, though the sides are double the amount offered...More

Hi Sara, Thank you for your review, but we haven't served brunch since October of 2014. Perhaps you meant to publish this to another restaurant?

For more than 24 years, the story of food, grace, and community are vividly brought to life when you step in for some fine dining at 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. Our goal is to make our mark on Atlanta's culinary scene with a fabulous dining experience you won't soon forget. 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 setup for an exquisite meal. We employ a classically-trained staff who take pride in their culinary masterpieces which feature a touch of the exotic and a twist of the romantic. We serve up slowly-braised meats, locally-sourced produce, and traditional culinary techniques that will appeal to anyone's palate.
