Located in an old building on main avenue is one of my favorite coffee joints. Their coffee is always freshly ground and packs a punch, which is what I need in the mid mornings. Good freshly made cookies and rolls to go with your drinks. The soup and sandwich is a great meal for lunch.

We took a weekend trip up to Fargo, and quickly realized/remembered that most places are closed on Sunday mornings. Babb's isn't! Thank goodness, because this place is great. Good coffee and lots of delicious food options. The staff is very friendly, and the environment is awesome. I could see myself spending a whole day in there with my computer working.... More

It had been years since I had been into Babb's. Wonderful and staff was great! In Fargo on business and had to bring my helper here to experience it's awesomeness. We had coffee and dinner here. Took a scone to go and ate it the next morning. Delicious!

You walk in for coffee and some kind of nourishment, plop down in an inviting chair or couch, and want to stay for hours. Coffee is fabulous and food is amazing. If I lived in Fargo I would hang out every morning at this place.

Lots of drinks to choose from. Pomegranate & lemon iced tea a little bitter. The score was not really a score. More like a large muffin top. Atmosphere was nice.

The house. Lend is great and was served hot. Drip coffee is sometimes an afterthought at "coffee houses" that focus on espresso drinks. This was a nice reversal of that trend. We were there after lunch so it was relatively quiet. Two employees were knowledgeable, friendly, and efficient. A black mango tea sampled by one in our party didn't measure... More

A pleasant coffee house located in a well decorated old downtown building. There is plenty of space to sit comfortably and enjoy a cup.

Nice atmosphere in a historic building in downtown area. Rather reminds me of an old library with lovely woodwork and soft comfortable seating. Good coffee bar, try the Italian roast it's the best I've had. They also have an old-fashioned glass case with daily fresh sandwiches, salads, baked goods. Quality plus atmosphere plus venue make this a favorite coffeehouse in... More

We stopped for mid-day coffee. Babb's was a great choice. There were lots of yummy looking things in the display cases but were just having coffee. The staff is young, welcoming and cheerful ... we enjoyed chatting with them. The coffee is GREAT. The place is a little quirky ... part gallery, part antique store, a hangout for varying ages...

We stopped in here for breakfast and coffee/tea on Memorial Day. My wife had coffee and quiche, while I had tea and a breakfast sandwich. All our food and drinks were very good. The counter service was very helpful and friendly. It has some aspects of a typical coffee house with the big couches, etc., but elements of a cozy... More
