Julie's tea garden has both outdoor and indoor seating and both are very relaxing and enjoyable places since they do not allow for phone use. Service is counter service but they bring the food to your table. The food is super good. I've tried most all of their small menu - from soups, pate, salads, to egg dishes. The offer... More

Julie's cafe is a nice coffe shop to spend one's time at with friends, one's children or just alone. The coffee is very good and they serve very good food. The back garden is my favorite place to be when I eat there. It is tranquil and cozy and is well maintained. It is in a central part of town... More

Very relaxed environment with endless tea and coffee selection. You can get on their wireless and work there like a true Internet coffee/tea cafe! The back outdoor garden is delightful and quiet. Also an excellent place to overhear conversations for a study in "dialog" when writing a book.

Great selection of tea. Perfect spot to take your book or laptop and just relax. A nice alternative to the commercial Starbucks or Peets.

This is my favorite coffee shop in Alameda The quality of their coffees and teas is excellent and they make great kombucha and other drinks. I love their food items as well! I crave the baked egg on a regular basis and their salads and other stuff is great too! The outdoor patio is very charming and a great place... More

If you are a vegetarian or even vegan, this is the place for you. The pumpkin muffin is my favorite. I have tried the hummus and quiche. They are both delicious. Have a pot of tea and a snack in the beer garden on a nice day. You will love it!

We held a baby shower at Julie's and it was great! The food was delicious and the setting was lovely. I highly recommend it for planning a small tea party! We got the season plate and the scones were amazing!
