The Tuscan Bowl is served at breakfast and includes Tuscan kale, roasted sweet yam, tomato, two sunny up eggs, and organic red quinoa.

Plenty of dishes make our top picks, including their Crisp Goat Cheese Dumplings to start, the Buddha Bowl as a plant-based entree, and a generous slice of their Luscious Carrot Cake for dessert. Babette’s is currently open seven days a week. 631-329-5377
