The food here at the Soup and Such has been awesome any time that I have eaten here. The soups and salads are always wonderful as are the quiches and outstanding hamburgers. I love the apple pancakes for breakfast with a warm pot of quality tea! Staff are always helpful and friendly.

Nice atmosphere! Full of plants. Breakfast is GREAT! Made from scratch. Not greasy. Does take a while after ordering to receive it, so don't go there if in a hurry! I hear their other meals are good too. Can't wait to try them! Healthy, tasty food in pleasant, clean surroundings, right in the middle of town.

Went here for lunch one day being's it was raining. My husband and I both had a cup of the corn and potato chowder with a homemade roll. (His exact words "just like you make dear"), meaning the rolls. They were both very good. Everyone was so friendly and helpful.

Good food. Friendly service. I think the wait was long but it was Labor day weekend and it couldn't be helped.

Three of us came for "Such," since Ww were too early for soup. Breakfast was a delight with great coffee and a wonderful egg dish for me. If I lived here I would come regularly. I'd like to comeback to try some of praised soups.

My wife and I ate here twice while visiting Julian, once for breakfast and again for lunch. Both times the food was great. For lunch we shared a BLT and were glad we did. It was more than enough for both of us. The sandwich was huge! Enough said, I would recommend this café to anyone.

My husband and I each chose a different soup so we could try at least two. There were several more on the menu tha looked good too. I loved the corn chowder. Too bad they aren't open for dinner!

I ate here twice, once for lunch and once for breakfast, while in Julian and really enjoyed the food with fresh well prepared ingredients and we sat on the patio which was quiet and charming away from the main street yet still with nice view of it. We also met the owner who was very nice and apparently does flower... More

My husband and I live in Julian and enjoy lunch here as often as we can. The friendly service and "fresh homemade" meals are a treat! Great burgers and delicious soups and sandwiches!...We're still eating our way through the menu! When family and friends come up to visit we always have lunch here! Very pleasant casual atmosphere and great food!...

Thank tenkrun
