What they're saying...
"This past weekend I beat the heat of the city by going to one of my favorite upstate towns, Millbrook, New York. It's a relatively quick hour and some minutes for me to get there, and it's such a charming, quiet, easy place to be. Not to mention the very friendly people that can be found as well, such as Patsy Pollack, the head of merchandising here at Martha Stewart Living. I ran into my friend Patsy outside our favorite local hang out, Babette's Kitchen, just before the farmers' market was to open."

"Whittaker’s four-tiered confection was accented with ranunculus and acorns, the latter a symbol of the hunt."
"We have an enormous kitchen that everyone else uses but us— we’re a disaster. We recruit guests who can cook, or we go to an awesome, true American diner for floats and grilled cheeses. Babette’s—fresh, local, and great—caters our parties. Anne loves the bistro Cafe Les Baux and the delicious and ecoconscious Red Devon (all their meat is raised nearby)"

"At Babette's, customers have the pleasurable experience of enjoying simply good food in a country casual, yet upscale atmosphere. Diners at the two and a half year old restaurant can feast on fresh baked goods, local cheeses, organic coffee -- but you have to try the famed meatloaf and the freshly baked pastries and seasonal fruit pies. Babette's also offers catering as well as lunch and dinner options to go."
The Millbrook Independent
"When I first moved to Millbrook, I quickly discovered Babette’s and their buttermilk biscuits. The biscuit is light and fluffy and tastes like something served right out of Granny’s oven on Walton’s Mountain. It is heavenly. I found myself thinking about those biscuits and heading to Babette’s a little too often. "
