Really enjoyed the wholesome and delicious meal here. They were accommodating to my party's diet needs and had no problem substituting items.

We searched for a nice place to have lunch after seeing the super bloom in Borrego Springs. We traveled the half hour to Julian and were pleasantly surprised by this little cafe. The staff were extremely accommodating even though they were very busy. We all had a great lunch...my favorite was the Green Harvest soup and sweet potato fries. We... More

This little café is set in an old home repurposed to serve light lunches and meals. You can order great sandwiches or soups that are sure to satisfy your mid day hunger after walking the historic town of Julian. I had a toasted BLT sandwich with a tomato bisque soup and was glad I did. My wife had a bowel... More

I was not impressed with this place. The service was very slow, which would be okay if I knew they were taking time to make things fresh. But all I ordered was salad, so why the 12 minute wait? There is only one restroom, which was not even marked with a sign. The menu was quite limited for vegetarians, just... More

A nice little local type place in a touristy area. We stopped in on a cold, dreary day and really enjoyed the sandwiches.

Every time my wife and I go to Julian, the first place we go is Soups and Such. We eat at least one meal a day there, usually two. Everything on the menu is wonderful. Our favorite for lunch is soup, salad and 1/2 sandwich. Do not forget iced tea. It is the best. The people are very friendly and... More

We are staying in the Julian area and had a friend visiting for the day. We wanted to take him into Julian and try something different from our usual fare. Found "Soups and Such Cafe" on Trip Advisor and decided to give it a try. We were so glad that we did. The atmosphere is cute and inviting. The service... More

The Garden Vegetable soup was quite good. The sweet potatoe fries were as well. The staff was very friendly and fairly efficient, but stretched thin and somewhat delayed in bringing the bill. It seems that a lot of locals go here, which I take as a good sign.

We loved the puréed green zucchini, broccoli soup. The sweet potato fries were good too. Liked the croutons and cheese on the soup, lemon in the free ice water, nice waitress. The burgers and sandwiches looked good too.
