We wanted somewhere traditional serving good quality hearty family meals and this is what we got. The place was busy - always a good sign - and the service and food excellent. My wife loved her Chilli Taco Salad.

The portions were large and the food was delicious! I had the chicken pie turnover and it was wonderful, my husband loves hamburgers and he was not disappointed. We come to Julian once a year or so and will definitely return again!

Usually this restaurant is packed; today was an exception. Service was fast. Coffee and pie were an outstanding way to finish off our Julian visit!

Great Patty melt. Apple pie was a big disappointment because there was not enough cinnamon, which made it bland, and the crust was like leather, not flaky at all.
