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

Friendly faces and Good food. This visit confirms what I knew all along; some reviews are based on the mood and attitude of the writer and not the service of the establishment. From the moment I stepped through the door I was acknowledged. Not only was the service prompt and friendly with a side of sense of humor but it... More

We visit South Haven often and have been customers at Julia's since the beginning. It used to be a great place to go hang out for a light breakfast or lunch. There is a good variety of food and the coffee is great. The last few times I've been in, the wait has been long. The employees are very nice... More

We stop at Julia's on a monthly basis for coffee, hot cocoa, and deserts. All they do very well. We don't eat meals there more than once a year, but the food is always good. The drinks and deserts are always very good.
