Don't know what coffee they use but its pretty insipid, Toast with avocado and tomato was overpriced at $14.50, particularly when non-spray avocados were on sale for $5 for a bag of up to 12 from a roadside vendor not far away, I wouldn't go...More

we were delighted with both the choice of food - one of us having salad and the other pizza - and with the cheerful greeting when we arrived. Service was prompt, and all the facilities clean.

My indigenous friends from Mexico took me here. I actually suggested another cafe across the road. What I was uniquely surprised with, was the presentation of my food and coffee. My simplistic eggs on toast came out presented like an exquisite artistic creation. I was...More

For the last couple of years we have joined another couple every Sunday for breakfast at Babette. The food is consistently excellent and the staff (they have very low staff turnover) are fantastic. We will be back on Sunday.

Café Babette has a special flair with a variety of offerings including vegetarian that clearly demonstrates Chef Paul’s selection of fresh ingredients and attention to detail in the recipe. Babette welcomes large groups and families in a relaxed atmosphere that encourages good conversation and allows a good energy to flow. The staff is knowledgeable, efficient and friendly, and the décor is clean and contemporary. It is a great place to sit outside in the sun under the umbrellas and read the daily paper provided. Only food made from scratch on the premises from fresh ingredients is served. The variety of cookies and cakes are all baked fresh daily and sell out quickly.Café Babette aims to raise the bar on other choices offered around the Mount by focussing on a variety of flavours and keeping it fresh and interesting. See you in the morning for a stellar coffee and a slice!
