The food and service are exceptional. The restaurant is located in a darling, cozy house which makes the experience a top-rated experience with alot of ambiance. The owner, Marla, and our server were wonderful people. Janet, our server, guided us through the wine and menu choice. Her expert advice made the experience perfect. This restaurant is a definite gem.

I took my wife to Babette’s Cafe for her birthday after having been told it was one of her favorite places to dine.
We drove up from Blue Ridge and the valet greeted us. We walked in and were immediately seated and we met Janet our server. She was great! We had predinner cocktails and ordered our food and a bottle of wine. Our opinion of the food? Fabulous!!

The food was delicious. The ambiance was great. I did not enjoy our waiter. I felt like he did not pay the same attention to us as the other tables. He did not check on us or ask us if we need anything (maybe because we didn’t have any alcohol????) We truly enjoyed the food, other welcoming employees, valet, and feel of the restaurant. Our waiter truly ruined a good experience

Nice little restaurant, attentive service, food was subpar had the liver pate which was delicious and the fried shrimp as an appetizer which was ok, the veal was tasteless and tough, the paella was not good, rice was overcooked and mushy, seafood again overcooked, seems like the precooked the rice then on service they just reheated in the oven, paella takes time and has to be made at the moment its a hard dish to accomplish but if they are taking shortcuts should be taking off the menu.
