Good Coffee

We visited the cafe in the afternoon and enjoyed some coffee and a cookie. The coffee was hot and very good and the cookie was very delicious. The music was great and the atmosphere was very pleasant. Great location to downtown.

This charming little café coffeehouse was a nice place to have lunch and a cuppa joe. We sat on the upstairs patio and enjoyed the light Michigan breeze and sunshine. The blueberry white chocolate chip cookie is to die for! So unique, lots of sandwich/lunch options, too.

Cute little coffee/pastry and small breakfast/lunch spot. If ordering food, it takes a while to be served, but was fresh and good. Not worth a wait, good if you just want drinks or pastry quick.

Great coffee,m fast service, a good array of sandwiches, salads , soups and desserts. Clean comfy, free and speedy wifi. The only thing missing in my 6 seasonal years as a customer is a smile. That is fine but staff often seem overworked and terse.

I'm a Starbucks guy. Love the way they roast their coffees but when I'm in a small town, I look for the local coffee shops. Typically the ones who appreciate the roasted goodness as much as I do. Cafe Julia has a great and helpful staff, small but delicious breakfast menu and flavorful coffee. The little shop has a fun... More

Vegan options! I used to stop in here when I was passing through South Haven with my vegan catering business. I stopped in the other day for the first time in a couple years and it was still great! I just went for coffee, but I was so excited to see they had several varieties of raw, vegan, house made... More

We always get coffee here when we are in town. All kinds of coffee tea hot chocolate etc, as well as delicious pastry. In winter you can watch the outdoor ice skaters at the made made skating area next door. Or in summer walk the shopping areas nearby.

A great place to enjoy a cup of coffee. Enjoy the tea too. Good pastries fresh and tasty. But sometimes in peak season you have to get there early as they run out. Not their fault just a fact of a vacation town. Always enjoy having a pastry and a cup of brew in the cool mornings.

Delicious mocha, coffee, raw bars, cookies, pleasant music, cheerful, wonderful staff. Two outside porches with seating. Wi-Fi, limited electric outlets, but you can usually sit near one after a short wait, since patrons frequently come and go. We spent extended time at Café Julia several rainy days. One day the lively noise level floated just below the music; another day,... More
