About Babette's Cafe
Our deck tables are not available online and can make for a lovely evening throughout the year.
Dining at Babette’s Café is like stepping into Chef/Owner Marla Adams’ home. She is equally as known for the incredibly creative Rustic French, Spanish and Italian cuisine that she creates, as she is for her welcoming personality. Marla has turned her apron over to Chef Justin Kurtz who has taken the reigns in the kitchen. Together they dig deep into the food history and traditions of Europe and bring them to Atlanta with nuance, respect and artistry.
For twenty-four years, Babette’s Café has offered the flavor of a restaurant that is tucked into the French countryside. The dining room offers a relaxed setting and the outdoor patio, which overlooks the serene setting of Freedom Park, makes diners forget that they are just minutes away from downtown Atlanta.

Babette's Cafe Ratings and Reviews
Great dinner. Husband, grown child and me. Husband was disappointed that he had indicated this was a birthday dinner (mine, 11/29) and we have been loyal customers (as our coin permits) since opening. He was bummed that I wasn't offered a free dessert but I was fine. His veal, my scallops and kiddo's pork tenderloins all were yummy.
Our server, John, was friendly and exceptionally attentive. He helped make our special occasion what we expected at Babette's.
Meals were excellent but found the loin chops to be on the small size and too burnt on the exterior. The crispy potatoes, with the loin chop meal, were dry and would recommend an alternative choice for that meal.
I know I am probably repeating myself, but how many times can you say, "superior food, great service and always, always makes us very happy". As usual, the piroshkis were spectacular; one of these times I will have three plates of piroshkis and pass on the main course.
The best thing about Babette's is its CONSISTENTLY great food.
Over the years we have been perhaps 20 times. However the last visit was 4 years ago. The ambiance is great with the intimate dining room. The food selections were tasty - but I would not say anything special. And - to that point there were no chef specials which was disappointing. We arrived about 30 minutes early, and although many tables were ready we and many others staged in an all to small bar. When we got seated the waiter was eager for us to order (like really eager and often) - which somewhat contradicted the bar seating - if they wanted to turn the table quicker perhaps there is another way.
I would go back based on fair pricing and charming property. But this eve not based on the amazing food and assuredly not the service -
You can always expect outstanding and courteous service at Babette's and that coupled with the delicious food offered on the menu and the drinks from the bar and an exceptional wine list you cannot go wrong. Always a pleasure to have a dinner with friends at Babette's Cafe.
I've had a really good experience here before, but the food was bland and lacking this time. Even the presentation was dull and messy. Lastly, the valet was extremely rude and made a nasty comment under his breath about his tip. I'll give them another try as the ambiance is great. Hoping this was just a one off.
As always Babette's delivers an excellent meal at a reasonable price.
It is a pretty room and the service is always spot on-attentive but not intrusive.
Be a little early and have a drink at the six seat bar--fun to watch a good bartender work!
Killer cassoulet, scrumptious and fresh swordfish. Beautiful menu! Lovely wines, friendly and professional service. Enjoyed indulging in the baguette and butter. If I lived in the area it would be a go-to restaurant for any special occasion.
Babette's is one of my favorite local restaurants with lovely ambiance, wonderful service and delicious food. Their St. Germain Pear Martini is always delicious. We started with the seasonal sweet potato soup which was yummy, especially with their warm baguette. I am looking forward to my next visit!
