I had a nice breakfast here, The food was tasty, with large portions. Home fries were very good, I had the cafe omelette. Server was friendly and did a good job. Decor is rather cowboy kitschy, but easy to overlook because the food is good.

Always reliable, always crowded. Chill. Just put your name in, set the timer on your phone, walk through the shops and voilá, your table’s waiting. Nice people. Good food. Charming old time style. We never miss it.

This café has a Western theme to it, and the walls were decorated with vintage pictures and other Western-type memorabilia. The hamburgers were excellent, and the wait staff very attentive. Would definitely recommend!

We ordered the cinnamon buns, Oh my the size!! They were the best buns I think I've ever had. If you're in Julian you most try them and plan on taking most of it home with you.
