This is definitely South Haven’s #1 Coffee Shop. They are rather quick with their orders, always friendly service. They have soup, sandwiches, salad, etc for food. They also have amazing pastries! I always get their cookies and muffins. I have sat there on my laptop...More

The worst service ever received at Cafe Julia is better than other places. Service is always friendly and attentive. Food is fresh and great. WiFi works well and allows productive work time.

This counter-service joint has a great feel, is extremely casual and touts a pretty decent variety of sandwiches for this type of establishment. The italian wasn't very good, but the BLT was really good. The slaw was super yummy, but the time we waited for...More

Julia's and now related restaurants have become more focused on bottom line and forgot about the brand they had developed. They have still have decent food and beverages but have high prices, poor employee attitudes for most part which I would attribute to the culture...More

I'm sure if you contact the manager to make arrangements they might be able to assist. It depends on the time of year that you go. Cute little cafe.
