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.

This is a quick, cheap breakfast. We make this our last stop on our way out of town every time we visit. Nice atmosphere and good breakfast!

Julie's is the gatekeeper to Penninsula Park. The food is excellent, and very down-home. It's a great morning stop for a quick muffin and coffee before you head out to explore. The best part is that it's the hub of everything going in and out of the park.

Our group of nine people had a lovely pre-theater dining experience at Julie's. Our server was attentive, friendly, and very sensitive to the fact that we were headed to a play at Peninsula Players and so were on a tight timeframe. The food was served hot and delicious. I enjoyed a pecan-crusted trout, which is always a treat. Julie's looked... More

Looking for affordable and excellent food? This is the place. Burger was perfectly cooked, yummy slaw, and fast service. This is a great place for those with gluten allergies, they obviously train their wait staff to understand food allergies and be able to answer questions, rare in most restaurants.

Julie's Park Cafe is located at the entrance to Peninsula State Park in Fish Creek. There is usually a wait for a table during peak times in summer and fall, however, the wait is generally short and well worth it! The breakfast options are delicious and plentiful. The restaurant is decorated with painted murals of nature scenes in Door County,... More

Julie's is a delightful place to stop for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It has good home style cooking, beer and wine, and great cherry pie! It is always busy, but we got seated right away.
