"A tasteful oasis. . . Babette's rustic, seasonal, locally sourced menu is perfectly suited for a major Berkeley institution"—East Bay Express

Proprietors Joan Ellis and Patrick Hooker have over twenty years experience cooking, baking, and catering in the Bay Area. Their cafe offers monthly changing breakfast and lunch menus as well as scrumptious housemade pastries and French press, pour-over, and espresso coffee drinks from Verve, Catahoula, and Ritual Roasters. 

“Our goal with Babette is to provide a warm and welcoming space where museum and theater visitors, students and teachers, neighbors and friends can gather to enjoy delicious food and drink, share ideas, and build upon this vibrant community.”
