The waffles were very good but a little bit expensive. But you have a lot of choice from extra toppings and the café is very cute.

Delicious. Take them to go and eat on the street and make a mess. Or eat in the "cozy" store. Favorite is cinnamon cream cheese.

Babettecafe, is a tiny place that for several decades has been serving outstanding Belgian waffles with sauces and toppings prepared on-site. Applesauce,chocolate cream, chestnut and fruit sauces turn the fresh waffle into a delight. On bone-chillingly cold Jerusalem days you can sip thick, creamy hot chocolate concocted of real chocolate. The place itself, like its waffles, is warm and homey.
