Yummy coffee and a quick breakfast

I'm addicted to Starbucks so not much can compare but this was a fantastic treat on our weekend getaway.

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

Prefer Starbucks, but the closest one is 25+ miles away. Stopped here twice. Once for lunch- got an iced latte. It was just ok. Got a chicken salad sandwich and the seven grain salad. Good was great, but it was like $9 and i thought that was a little overpriced. Service was "ok." They were friendly and atmosphere was good,... More

Lunch was okay. Heard how fabulous EVERYTHING was. Others were most impressed by the food. We're not sure about that. Just okay!

My sister and I got our morning coffee here and got to experience the local feel of South Haven. The baristas greeted people by name and were more than happy to help us with our choice. They have a broad variety of syrup choices and I loved their latte menu. They also offer steamed almond milk...that's impressive! Stop in and... More
