Returned to this Cafe with my wife after many years (we had our first date here). Remembered it as being stellar, but it was just OK. Server seemed unprepared for customers, the food was standard diner quality, and the ambiance was...eh.

It was a fine brunch experience in this neighborhood restaurant overall, though the ending was a downer. It was not terribly busy or crowded for a Sunday and when we asked the waiter to split the check 3 ways (3 couples) he acted as if it were a huge imposition (granted, it’s a small imposition) and came back twice to clarify what we ordered, complaining about the request, then brought out the wrong split anyway. We appeared to be one of very few tables and the only one closing out at that time.

Julia’s is a great little cafe for brunch. I had the chicken fried steak with eggs and loved it. This a small, local restaurant that can get super packed on the weekend but the staff is always kind and fast. Expect a bit of a wait to be seated but food comes out quickly.

For a basic breakfast, this was OK but the eggs benedict sauce had a weird flavor and the fried country potatoes were mushy. Service was good and attentive, no complaints there.

This is not the same Julia's of several years ago which was very popular, the food was excellent as well as the ambience. Perhaps there is new ownership which is why they are issuing Groupons. It is fine, but I have other places that I like much better for brunch or lunch. There is nothing unique or special about the place anymore.

Julia's is a favorite of mine for breakfast, brunch, and lunch. They have an extensive menu and whatever I've ordered has never disappointed. The service is attentive without being cloying. I particularly appreciate that they take reservations.

We wanted to each brunch on the 4th of Julyand we were fortunate to find out that Julia’s was open. The food was tasty and the service was quick. We would definitely come back again.

Food was a good value. Service was a bit slow and we did not receive a specials menu that other tables got. Nice neighborhood place for a leisurely brunch.

Great, cute brunch place. Our first time dining here -Service was awesome by my server. Another server - not so much - There was some confusion with my latte... they said the espresso machine was being cleaned out so I couldn’t get coffee...15 mins later; we can get you coffee - I ordered an extra hot latte and received it lukewarm. I didn’t say anything BC my food had just arrived and I needed coffee with my meal. If I had complained; not sure how long it’d have taken them!

Otherwise great ambiance! My server for the table was amazing (not the gal who was helping with my coffee order).

Will definitely be back for sure!

We had 5 people for Easter Brunch. The staff was polite and very accommodating to our party. They made sure we were taken care of. I like that they have GF/Vegetarian/Vegan options. It made our dinning experience very enjoyable.

Julia's is a long-time favorite, but just recently it has been the perfect spot for catching up one-on-one with old friends. Service was very efficient and pleasant, the space was sunny, and the noise level was just right for private conversation, but you felt you could laugh out loud without worry that you might offend your neighbor. Love Julia's!

Julia’s is a quintessential diner. Large portion dishes that retain good quality per bite. Why do a Denny’s or iHop when you can get the same dish prepared better here and support a local neighborhood business.

Burnt French toast and runny eggs. Slow service and there were only there tables with guests.

Soup was a bit salty; otherwise it’s good. Salad was fresh. Price was very reasonable. Server was friendly But after bill was paid; a lady who works there; I suppose, but not our server, came to our table and snatched the bill away without a word , which was sort of impolite

Went for breakfast. Brusque, hostess sat her friends who arrived after others, first. Food was slow. Bill was slower - took 25 minutes and asking 3 times. Walkable from my home, but I won’t be back

The food was good but service felt slow. I had the Orange French toast and it was flavorful, but I don't think the syrup on the side was real maple syrup so that made me sad.

I took my nephew there for breakfast. He had two blueberry pancakes and I had one. No other drinks or coffee. The bill was $25 before tax or tip. Around $34 for three pancakes. They were large and good but it seemed excessive.

Made a reservation for mother's day with 3 people. Get there and were told they dont for reservations for less than 5, but, should be a 10 minute wait. 45 minutes later, after finding out our names weren't even written down, we were seated. Food was decent, felt full, but, not satisfied. Not worth it, wont be returning.

Julia's is a wonderful neighborhood gem that we go to every once in a while. It was a busy Mother's Day weekend and we were glad to have made a reservation for four. While it took almost 10 minutes before we were acknowledged, we were seated shortly after our reservation time.

The food and Bloody Marry's with sake were tasty and up to par. The ambiance was cozy, friendly and, despite the busy weekend, unhurried. Afterward we all said we needed come back again.

We were a party of 6 for Mother’s Day brunch. Been there before. Food is usually good.
We were seated next to hallway to bathroom. I kept having to dodge people heading to and from the head. My dish arrived barely warm. It was good though.
We were winding up and getting ready to go, when the host apologetically asked us to scram-as people were waiting.
Busy day at Julia’s!
I would recommend them-but speak up if they seat you in the biffy.

This place reminds me of Seattle before it became a different type of city with cool and hip and pricey restaurants. Food and service were good. But the smell of old building was strong in the dining room and restroom.

My first time eating at Julia’s was a Sunday brunch with a colleague. Definitely will be returning with family and friends. The food was amazing and the staff very warm and friendly. The coffee alone was reason for a return visit. Neighborhood parking was not a problem, even on a busy weekend. Loved that I was able to make reservations as it can get busy. To note, the restaurant allows calm dogs to accompany patrons. We loved this aspect of the restaurant, but it might be an issue for those with allergies.

In a cute part of town. The servers were very friendly but did not listen to our orders very well. Both of our orders were wrong when we were served. Also, when we got to the table the silverware was wrapped but unclean and there were empty creamers left on the table. They need to tidy up a little better, that's all.

Searched for Chicken Fettuccine online, it was on the menu but when we arrived at the restaurant they were no longer serving this dish. Should have updated the menu online. Ordered fish/chips but when the plate arrived the fish was near burnt. Awful, with all the choices in Seattle we will not return.
