I've been to Julian's for the breakfast special @R21.00 (less than $2.00) on a number of occasions, and it's always a busy place. Service, the morning after St. Patrick 's Day was rather slow though and a lukewarm coffee was not up to their usual standard. Cheesecake was acceptable, not great.

Nice place to just relax with a coffee, with comfortable seating and a nice setting to socialize with friends. The alfredo pasta was quite good ~

Had the King Julians breakfast. Good value and they were happy to substitute mushrooms for the carbs. The pizza's were very tasty and a reasonable price. Waitrons were very pleasant , and eager to help. Thought the kitchen was very slow

A friend and I; sometimes joined by other friends; go for coffee, tea and perhaps something to eat most Wednesday mornings. It is always good to go there. The service is very friendly and helpful. It is a very popular place to go for a discussion, a meeting or just for the ambience. Prices are good, the food is more... More

Food is great, nice draft beer and the cappuccino with Cape Velvet was very special. They catered for 35 of us and were prompt and efficient. They get mobbed by large groups of students which is very entertaining. Good option for lunch or supper

I was so disgusted by the service i received on 24/01/2015. Seems the colour of my money is different to the other patrons at this place. Not like they can miss me,I'm the only coloured chick standing and waiting at the bar to be served, while the others are being served before me. And no im not racist and its... More
