Timing is everything when you have young kids in the family. We've heard great things about Babette's but the little grand ones are on a schedule. So we arrived at 5:30 and were shown a nice table on the patio in the back. Big enough for four adults and two toddlers. We explained our situation - kids on a schedule - the waiters made dinner happen. Quickly! The hummus appetizer was tasty with roasted chick peas for crunch. The salmon entree with sweet pea purée and Brussel sprouts was flavorful, though less purée and more sprouts would have been preferred. We were in and out before the adult crowd arrived. Too fast for we big kids - just right for the little ones. Thank you Babette's for reading the crowd and delivering on service and taste. We will be back!

a gorgeous setting both indoors and out. The service is wonderful and the menu eclectic. The ingredients used are top notch. You couldn't do better at a French bistro in France. I recommend the vegetarian dishes. The appetizers were excellent you could make a meal of those. Portions are generous so unfortunately you wont have room for dessert which all looked tempting.

The food is good, the service friendly, but the place is expensive. Here are some lunch hints: Order a wrap to go and split it. They are pretty big and the chips that go with the wrap are excellent. Take your meal over to the sheltered patio next to "Z" Pizza. Beautiful setting out of the wind. Don't order a smoothy. They're good but not worth $9. If you're on a budget, buy your wraps and beverages at Trader Joe's and eat in the "Z" Pizza patio. It is open to everyone.

Enjoyable breakfast, great flavours and choices. Welcome friendly and service excellent. Our server was extremely pleasant and very accomodating in serving all dietary restrictions. Unfortunately it was a rainy day, so we could not take advantage of the lovely outdoor seating area.
