In South Haven for business and noticed the lack of Starbucks. Ended up finding Cafe Julia and I'm so glad! My mom loved her drip coffee and my snickers latte was awesome! Very kind staff and beautiful sit down area - wish we could have stayed!

Upscale sandwich shop and bakery. Chalkboard menu above the counter. Lots of sandwich and side selections. Recommend the vegetarian sandwich and the coffee. Wish I could have stayed for dessert too. Next time!

This place is trying to cash in on the coffee/sandwich shop craze. Bread was not fresh. Meat is not to be ordered here. Stick to a salad or the almost stale baked goods.

Great lunch and breakfast food and pastries. The café is situated right next to the pavilion and in the winter time the ice rink is set up there so it is a great place to go warm up and get a hot drink. Try the cranberry granola cookies!

Even though we called at ten minutes to closing, they were very gracious about our last-minute take out order. It was ready when we arrived, and the woman at the counter was really nice. The food we ordered was fresh, wholesome and very tasty! I'm on a special diet, and it's rare to get something that fits my diet that... More
