Julie's Park Cafe and Motel is a traditional American cafe that is set just outside Peninsula State Park and just at the north end of Fish Creek, WI. Minutes from shops, beaches, water, parks, and bike rentals. We love to accommodate any and everyone that comes in for a great dining experience. We have indoor and outdoor seating, the outdoor seating is pet friendly. We serve breakfast all day as well and lunch and dinner. Just look for the Big Purple Chair on our front lawn and enter the place as strangers and you will definatly leave as our freinds.

Had breakfast here. Amazed at the size of the yogurt with fruit and granola my husband got!! We couldn't finish the fruit with both of us sharing it. Disappointed that my crepes were only lukewarm. Would try them again.

We went there f or breakfast 2 days in a row. We had the same great waitress (Angie?) both days. Stuffed french toast, eggs benedict, waffles, and really good coffee. You can sit outside with your dog, and there's a huge purple chair in the front for photo-ops.

We always camp when coming to Door County so rarely eat out, but this time we met friends at Julie's. It was so good, I expect to return next year. We got the Early Bird Special for 5.95 which was a very generous breakfast. Service was excellent. Mon - Fri this is available from 6:30 - 9:00.

Had dinner on our first visit, there was a short wait to be seated but our meal came quickly. Dinner was very good; ordered the brisket Mac n cheese .Went back for breakfast a couple days later and was also pleased. The praline French toast was delicious too!

Great place for any meal of the day - but if you are a breakfast person - go for it! They employ students from all over the world during the summer which leads to some interesting conversations!

I have eaten at Julie's many times and always enjoy the good food and friendly service. If you expectations about atmosphere are not too high, this place is a very safe bet. It's hard to find a repeat visitor to Door Co. who hasn't eaten here and liked it. On this occasion, my companion and I, along with our grandchild,... More

The food was not spectacular. We would call it more average then anything else. Might go back again, but we want to try the many other places first. The service was great and the food was cooked properly and came out quickly.

Great community. Very good wait staff. Food far exceeded price paid. 5 guests each with very different meals and all raved. "Czech Pot Roast with dumplings"(?) is a must. Large portion and very tender, delicious. Dumplings not as good as my spaetzle but this type of dumpling is still better than most other entree side offerings at most restaurants. Very... More

I've been going to Julie's since I moved to Door County about 9 years ago. This has been my absolute favorite place to eat for any meal of the day, but especially dinner. Whether you get your own menu favorite or try the nightly specials, each plate is like home cooking. The atmosphere and service is always on point, leaving... More
