deliciously irresistible!

julius meinl is a must try. an absolutely refreshing, charming, and unique place to grab a coffee or a viennese breakfast. add to that their friendly service and casual elegant interior to make this cafe/restaurant a sure crowd pleaser.

the only qualm i have is the street parking, which can be a bit elusive.

definitely no shortage of goat cheese in this crepe, maybe even too much. but overall a satisfying breakfast dish w/a nice green salad topper.

Brie and Ham Crepes at Julius Meinl Cafe

Brie and Ham Crepes

another excellent breakfast choice for crepe lovers. a sufficient quantity of two ham & brie filled crepes.

Quiche at Julius Meinl Cafe


fluffy, almost not fully cooked, which i liked because it tasted very fresh and homemade. none of that heavy as a brick quiche here.

Just as good as the first time...

My girlfriends and I came here for brunch…and the place was already packed! We had to wait about 20 minutes to get a table, but it was worth the wait.

Smoked Salmon

Very yummy…comes with tomatoes, a huge croissant and smoked salmon (obviously =P). See picture! The croissant tasted like it just came out of the oven, the tomatoes were also very fresh and the smoked salmon was just perfect.

Frosted Mint Mocha

Very good but not as good as Macadamia Nut mocha. Comes with whipped cream and crushed peppermint candy on top and a small piece of graham cracker.

A Taste of Europe

I came here for Saturday brunch, arriving exactly 1 minute after it opened at 11a.m. and the place was PACKED! There was a 20 minute wait to get seated at the restaurant! Other customers, who did not want to eat there, had the option of going up to the pastry/coffee counter to order quick breakfasts. Some of them would take these quick bites and sit in the waiting area (which has about 4-5 tables with booth like seats) in the front to munch on their meals.

The ambience is fresh, clean and bright. The cafe is located at the street corner, so 2 sides of it are made up of tall and wide windows. This gives the cafe a very open, almost outdoorsy, feel. The tables were each decorated with a tiny vase full of fresh, multi-colored carnations which added to the cheery atmosphere. As busy as it was, the staff never made us feel rushed. The food was great (talk about an endless selection) and I will definitely be returning to taste the yummy looking pastries on display!


Spatzle (which is a type of shell-like pasta) cooked with onions and cheese, sprinkled with bacon and chives. It’s pretty filling and the bacon goes really well with the dish. Maybe just a tad heavy on the cheese, which makes the dish seem heavy as a whole. Otherwise, it’s an excellent “European specialty.”

Spiced Apple Cider

I’m not a huge fan of apple cider, but this one was fabulous! It’s hot apple cider mixed with spiced chai tea to add that chai kick. I didn’t even have to add any sugar to it cuz the sweetness of the apple cider was sweet enough. Yum!
