Omelet was great and not too big. Don't order hashbrowns extra crispy, just leave as served. Pancakes were better than most, but could have come with real maple syrup in Door County.

We would give Julie's the highest possible ratings except for the fact that they can't seem to keep the flies under control. A great menu with nightly specials, make it one of the few places in Door County that we visit twice in the week we vacation there.

Julie's is on our list of favorites in Door County, edging out some stiff competition for "must-visit" restaurants on our weekend trips each year. So many great menu options, including all-day breakfasts and many delicious lunch and dinner options, as well. Easy to find.... look for the huge, oversized purple Adirondack chair on the east/north side of Hwy. 42 (on... More

Home cookin' right next to the State Park. The pot roast sandwich was very good as was the chicken & biscuit soup. They are also know for their pie, it looked delicious but we were too full to try some. They also have great coffee.

Been coming here for a few years and the food & service is always good. Love their DC Cherry burger. Didn't think dried cherries, carmelized onions and Swiss sounded good, but the waitress urged me to try it. That was 3 years ago, now it's a necessary stop!

We visited Julie's for the first time this summer and we have been missing out for years. The atmosphere and service were great! The food was amazing - all homemade! Their cherry pie is a MUST!!! We will definitely be back several times when we visit DC next summer!

Be warned that they fill up fast, so you may want to call ahead or arrive earlier than you want to eat since there can be a wait, but it'll be worth it. The food was delicious and the staff was on top of everything despite being packed for breakfast. I'd definitely come back again to try more of the... More

My husband and I love to eat at Julie's whenever we are vacationing in Door County. Tonight I got the Michigan Lake perch dinner with salad (or soup) and choice of potato. My salad came with a fresh soft roll. I also ordered an Island Wheat beer brewed on Washington Island while my husband had a Czech Pilsner beer. He... More

Went for lunch. Had planned to have breakfast (served all day) but the sandwiches looked so good we all had one. We had pot roast, pulled pork, and grilled portobello sandwiches. I had whitefish chowder as well. The food was all home made on good bread/rolls. The chowder was wonderful as was the service. Definitely a good place to stop.... More

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.
