During tourist season you will wait for a long time (hour plus) to get a seat in a small crowded cafe that serves mediocre pie and has terribly slow service. Try Apple Alley right next door to get your fix.

We ate breakfast 3 times at the Julian Cafe. Food is excellent. Portions are very large so you may want to share plates. Staff is friendly and kept the coffee coming.
