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.

We were visiting Julian for three rainy/snowy days over New Year's, and did our share of delightful wandering up and down the streets of town. This alone was worth the trip. However, at noon we stumbled into this warm, cozy nook of a cafe for lunch. Busy, yet peaceful and inviting, the menu nearly all soups, salads, and sandwiches. The... More

My mom and I popped in out of the rain for a late lunch on Friday afternoon. We were from out of town, and after a morning of hiking, we were cold and hungry. It was about 2:30 and we didn't know the restaurant was closing at 3:00. The wait staff could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. We... More

Our group of five had a great lunch here! Four adults and one five year old. A little crowded (cozy) and tables are small, but quaint atmosphere and cheery waitress. A children's menu would be nice, but the grilled cheese with fries was fine for our little one. We tried a variety of soup and sandwich combinations - and all... More

I love this cafe. When you live in town you have tried all the usual but this one stands above. The food is fresh, inventive, beautifully plated and tasty. A burger sounds like, well, a burger. But then you get the plate and it's beautiful and elegant. Not your usual greasy burger and fries. Their soup is delicious as are... More

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.
