This is a small, comfy cafe, good for a bite to eat on the way back to the San Diego area after visiting Anza Borrego. It has an early Western decor with enough biblical sayings on the placemats and elsewhere to make it the Julian...More

Relaxing atmosphere in a historic setting. Simple fare but authentic American and the apple/pumpkin pie combinations was superb.

THis is the specialty, and we order it every time we are there. No trip to Julian is complete without this meal. It is comfort food at its best.

This is a cute place and it's hard to mess up eggs, potatoes, English muffins, and coffee. All of the above was good, especially the coffee and potatoes. What wasn't very good was the corned beef hash. It was gamey and harsh tasting. Service was...More
