“Organic Excellence in Alameda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2012

Whether you're looking for a superlative breakfast like eggs, spinach, garlic, and cheese baked to perfection in a petite soufflee dish, a unique hot drink such as bergamot sage tisane, or a place to have an adult beverage ("happy hour" is titled "social hour" here), Julie's is the place to be in Alameda. We stopped by twice in less than a week, and will hit it once more before we leave the area, hopefully finding the effervescent barista, Caitlin, on deck. Treat yourself...you deserve it.

“Best Coffee House and Tea Shop in Alameda - Eclectic & Welcoming"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2011

So much to love! A huge selection of hand-blended teas, herbs, and fair-trade coffee. A friendly, fast, intelligent staff. Tasty, reasonably healthy baked treats by Real Goods Bakery, and a really fab quiche, plus salads & soup. Great acoustics for live music on Tuesday nights (check the calendar). Drop-in craft nights on Thursdays. A rotating gallery of interesting local art and reasonably priced gifts. Small reserved room upstairs accommodates a meeting or little party for about 12 people. Most enchanting is the garden out back - comfy tables and chairs, flowering vines, eclectic and tasteful garden art, a few potted plants and herbs for sale. This is the coffee house of my dreams, the place I would have opened if I'd had the money and nerve. Julie's gets better with each passing year.
