This restaurant is never a disappointment. The food is excellent, service professional and consistent, the atmosphere relaxed but sophisticated. Lamb chops, veal piccata, filet, all superior.

We have been regulars for years. We have dinner at Babette's at least twice a month. It's like our home away from home. Everybody knows us and they treat us so nice. The price is great considering the quality and service. We'll be there tonight...More

"The secret to beautiful food is using the ingredients in their most natural form." At Chef/Owner Marla Adams'Atlanta Restaurant, and with Chef Justin Kurtz now at the helm, life imitates art in a remodeled 1916 bungalow, nestled between the historic Inman Park and Poncey-Highland neighborhoods. You'll feel like a foreign film star as Babette's Cafe brilliantly brings Isak Dinesen's story of food, grace and community to vivid and delicious life in a rustic, European setting. For twenty-four years, Babette's Cafe has offered the flavor of stepping into a restaurant that is tucked into the French Countryside, making diners forget that they are just minutes away from downtown Atlanta.
