Restaurant Babette is in a great location near Potsdams' replica Brandenburg gate, and it is good for people-watching outside on a sunny day. Service was slower than we were accustomed to in Germany, but I think it's unfair of previous reviewers to complain of the...More

Stopped for something to drink during a quite hot sommer day at the late afternoon, we were very disappointed. The service was incredible slow and it was hard to get the attention of the staff. We saw also a number of other guests having the...More

This cafe has great location but poor food and worse value. The salad was tiny (for 11Eur) and not very good. A further dish had come directly from the freezer via the microwave. Avoid!

The cafe is quiet with a good atmosphere. The waiter was polite and did everything to make my visit and meal comfortable.
