Great coffee and love their whole wheat blueberry scones! Service was fast and pleasant. Plenty of room to sit a while, whether for conversation or alone with your laptop.

My husband & I enjoy Cafe Julia's each morning during our vacation. The coffee is not only great, but the environment is very welcoming! And it's conveniently located by the pavilion, which hosts the Farmer's Market on Wednesday & Saturday mornings!

If you eat at one place in South Haven, this should be it. Popular with locals and tourists alike. Carrot Cake muffin is sublime.

I like Julia's because the coffee is good and the staff is upbeat. It's a great place to meet someone for a chat or a meeting. When I go, it seems inevitable that at least five people I know will pass by and say "Hello."...More

I'm sure if you contact the manager to make arrangements they might be able to assist. It depends on the time of year that you go. Cute little cafe.

They have an outdoor eating porch but I am not sure they allow dogs. I don't know of any restaurant in South Haven that has an area for dogs.
