Fresh salads and lunch options. Convenient to Berkeley campus. Outdoor dining and popular with students.

This is a typical student-oriented place, near the university - cheap, self-service, food is perfectly fine. I was there for breakfast or lunch, and it was quiet and somewhat lacking in atmosphere.

The biggest problem with staying near the Berkeley campus is finding a nice place to eat. Most places, of course, are student type fast food joints and this is pretty much one of them. But as the name suggests, the food is good and well prepared. Nothing fancy here but it will give you something to keep you going to... More

Ran over the road when on a college tour with my son, just wanted a tea and some breakfast. Only one person serving, making coffees as well as taking orders and payments, but it wasn't too busy so ok. I had a great tea, they had good options, I think it was around $2.50. Also got an enormous brownie for... More

Changed hands a few months ago, and, well I am conflicted. Still a good breakfast and burger place but menu is now a hit and miss on other items. Prices went up and is now a bit prohibitive for my budget. Burger fries and coffee almost $10....do try the spicy chapoli burger though for a treat. New owner is Italian,... More

Ate here for lunch recently with two companions and found it a good walk up and order at the counter eatery in Berkeley. The soup was a fresh lentil, filling and generous. Not knowing that, I also ordered the Caesar salad, and it was enormous. Both came with a two large chunks of foccacia, which no one at our table... More

This is an indoor/outdoor restaurant at which my wife and I dined twice during a trip to Berkeley. We are both pad thai fans, and Julie's does pad thai very well. My only gripes are that it took a while to get our food on one of the visits when we were in a hurry, and the seating can be... More

We were just wandering around Berkeley looking for a place to have lunch. Julie's had a nice atmosphere and the menu looked interesting so we gave it a try...absolutely GREAT food! Mine was chicken pad thai, which I have had in many restaurants and this is far and away the best. Family members had other Asian dishes and were equally... More

I have been going to this café since my Cal days more than 13 years ago. And I still love it as much as ever. I have tried most things on the menu. The hummus is great. We love the kebobs. But my all-time favorite is the chicken curry. The portions are really big and the food is always fresh.... More
