We have eaten lunch here three or four times and we thoroughly enjoy it. The place has a real French cafe feel and the way the tables are arranged, you don't feel crowded.
I have selected one of their soups and salad each time and have never been disappointed.
We stayed for coffee the last time and it was the best coffee I've had in a long time. They use a French press, which must be at least on of the factors.
We stop here every time we are in Julian during lunch time. I highly recommend this place.

Very good food and excellent local wines which, if you like, can be purchased (at a discount) at the adjacent wine shop

It was a cold, clear day in Julian and I was craving soup for lunch. Came in and had a delicious lunch of half a curry chicken sandwich, cup of broccoli and brie soup and small salad (and bottle of beer). My husband had the salami sandwich, French onion soup, and salad. Delicious! The server was sweet and efficient. Probably the best spot for lunch in Julian. I definitely recommend this restaurant.

Walking through Julian about lunchtime at Lani' s were not many people. In the street at other lunchstops were line? We decided to go back to Lani and surprisingly there were many people, most locals we think that is a good sign. We did order the combo. Soup and sandwich, very tastful. No regrets at all!

This place makes an excellent bowl of Thai soup! The soups and sandwiches are excellent.......you can even pick up a long stem rose for your honey while you text them to meet you there for lunch. Much better atmosphere than your run of the mill suburban sandwhich franchise
