Best for Breakfast, but not for dinner

We had been to Julia's for breakfast several times and it was lively and fun. On our first stop for dinner it was mostly deserted and the menu was pretty pedestrian with normal sandwiches. The service was just fine as we were just about the only people there at about 7 p.m.

Business took me to the Wallingford district in August for the first time in many years. Afterward, I was hungry so stopped at Julia's on Wallingford, a place I'd thoroughly enjoyed many times, but not for several years. Gee whiz, was that a mistake. The food was very good as it used to be. The service, however, has dropped in... More

Julia's is close-by to where we live during our long annual stays in Seattle so we stop by occasionally for casual dining. The eclectic menu includes soups, salads, sandwiches, burgers and basic entrees. Breakfast items range from eggs to pancakes. The food has been mediocre to excellent during our visits, with my husband having much better luck than I've had.... More

It was a hot Seattle day and I had called to see if they had air conditioning. The woman who answered told me "no, but we have lots of windows open." I met my friend for dinner here and when we entered, only a couple of windows were open. It was quite warm. After being seated, I asked if we... More

Unfortunately, this place did not live up to our expectations. The coffee was decent, but the food was mediocre at best. I ordered an omelette with spinach and onions and received almost raw onions and sautéed spinach with a thin layer of fried eggs on top. Did not realize the definition of omelette has changed this dramatically... Unless it dramatically... More

When I was in graduate school 25 years ago, breakfast at Julia's was a week-end ritual and we went back for a blast from the past. Sadly, things seem to have deteriorated a bit. The food was still pretty tasty, although the Huevos rancheros would have benefitted from a bit of salsa on the side and the Socrates omelet lacked... More
