Nice menu, excellent food and great service!!! We arrived in Julian and needed to eat, and being Valentine’s Day we weren’t sure of the hours. They were very accommodating and welcoming!

Stopped there and had afternoon snacks. The candied-walnut salad and soup of the day, zucchini soup, yum were awesome!! The other person had the prime rib appetizers and enjoyed them! The restaurant is attractive, and it was a fun time!
