Lunch with daughter

My daughter and I eat here after spending the day out downtown looking around and shopping. Very friendly staff. Healthy options. Nice outdoor eating area to enjoy some fresh air

I live locally and often use Julia's as a spot to meet friends. I'm not sure why I continue to frequently stop here though, other than it's conveniently located. They consistently are out of menu items. I'm not sure why the management would not make more scones for your morning crowd, when you run out at 9 a.m.? Another day... More

We recently had a nice lunch at Julia's which consisted of the soup/sandwich combo. The turkey sandwich with cranberry chutney was a nice complement to the bell pepper soup. My coffee was just right and we enjoyed sharing a pastry for dessert. The service was prompt and friendly. Thank you, Julia's for an enjoyable lunch.

Had a couple of lattes and sandwiches here while in South Haven on vacation. The place was never very busy, and we couldn't understand why, because the coffee and food was excellent. The mini cinnamon buns were yummy!

Service is slow, everything is self service for clean up of the table for high prices and too expensive.

My iced chai latte was magnificent with nutmeg & whipped cream. Then had half chicken salad sandwich & bowl of Italian wedding soup for lunch. Generous portion of chicken with grapes in chicken salad. Soup seemed homemade. Definitely go back.

When all other coffee shops were closed Sunday morning, we found our way to Cafe Julia. Coffee was great and the trail mix cookies heavenly. But, my goodness, those breakfast sandwiches!! Incredible. Easy parking too, and quite convenient if you want to stroll down the main promenade afterwards.

A South Haven MUST! The sandwhiches are orignal creations on great bread/rolls. If you have had a better cookie anywhere in the world, I want to go there!
