Julian Apple Burger

What a surprisingly unique, delicious burger!! I asked the waitress what do people reorder when they visit. I'm so glad I tried this! Apples in the meat lightened the beef taste beautifully. Mustard sauce and bleu cheese was lovely! Amazing combination. Recommend highly!!

Apple Cider Float

Absolutely, overwhelmingly delicious! I have been coming here for years and have enjoyed several things off the menu, but the apple cider float deserves a shout-out. I have never had, or heard, of this item anywhere else in my travels, and the fact that it's made right in town makes it even better. I love the nostalgia of the diner, the old country ambience, and the delicious food that starts your day out right. I can't wait to come back for a hearty breakfast!

#3 Cheese Omelette

My step dad is a bit of a foodie and recommended this place to me and my family. Was not disappointed!! I tried the toast & bacon (perfectly cooked, mind you), while my kids tried the cheese omelette. They said the cheese melted in their mouth and wanted more! Excellent waiters were attentive and kind. 5/5 stars, would recommend to my wife

Chicken Fried Beef Steak

I've been going to the Julian Cafe since I could walk and my Dad has been going to this same cafe for over 30 years. Going to this cafe and eating their delicious chicken fried steak has always been the best part! There's nothing like coming from the snow in Julian or driving back down from Mount Laguna and eating the chicken fried steak with a glass of cold apple cider. As well as topping it off with a slice of apple pie a-la mode. The chicken fried steak is delicious and you can never go wrong with it. Thank you for always providing my family and I with great service and a great meal! We'll be coming back for more!

Belgium Waffle

The Julian Cafe's Belgian Waffle is fantasticly delishous!! They're using a new recipe and new waffle irons that makes for a waffle thats crisp and buttery on the outside and fluffy on the inside! To top it off... i add blueberries and a side of bacon! And "bam" a breakfast to die for!! Its a must have for breakfast at the Julian Cafe!!!

Chicken Fried Beef Steak

This is the best lunch/dinner you can get without getting "over stuffed"!(Leave room for pie)! Morgan goes out of her way too!!

Our Famous Julian Apple Pie

Having not lived in California long, I was told to go to Julian for their apple pie. I had a slice with the crumb top and a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. I have had some good apple pie in my days in Nebraska, where I moved from but NOTHING as delicious as this. In my 48 years, hands down the best apple pie I've ever eaten. We WILL be back when we are able to dine-in again. It was incredible. The town is very quaint and I can't wait to walk through all the shops.

Back Country Fried Chicken

Oh my! The best fried chicken since the 1950s when my Grandma would visit and make it for my family! When I need fried chicken, it's the ONLY place that does it right! Thank you for such wonderful comfort food!

"The Maverick" - Cobb Salad Sandwich

We have been coming to the Julian Cafe for years. I love the staff, they feel like family. Cara and Matt are fantastic. This food never disappoints. I have the Maverick sandwich, or the apple burger or the apple salad and everything is phenomenal. I refuse to eat anywhere else when I ride to Julian. Love you guys!

I live in Santee, better known as a flatlander. I have been coming up to Julian for over 50 years. The one restaurant that I enjoy most above all is a Julian Café and bakery. My favorite recipe is the chicken pie turn over. My second one is your great great fried chicken. My wife and die every time we come up to Julian you are the first place we stop. We love you , We support you, and pray God will Richly bless you. Brian Fulton
