Our Favorite Nearby Eateries
Cocina De Luz serves delicious fish tacos! Located directly across the street in Julian Station. Save time on lines!
Heroes Wood-Fired Pizza is a nearby neighbor within walking distance! Outdoor patio and full bar.
Jeremy's on the Hill offers upscale farm to table cuisine! Just down the road from Fort Cross, across from Wynola Pizza & Bistro.
Regulars Wanted Beanery Corporation is located on Main St. in the heart of Julian's Historic District. They have the most delicious menu items! Ask for "The Doreen", a lavender vanilla latte named after our very own Doreen Cross!
Julian Beer Company has delicious food in big portions! A fun atmosphere with a juke box and outdoor games! Located on Main St. in Historic Julian.
Quecho Elevated Mexican Eatery is the best Mexican food in Julian! Located off Main St. in Historic Julian. Beautiful outdoor dining area!
Apple Alley Bakery is one of our favorites because the food is good and they have the best lunch special in town! About $12 gets you a sandwich, soup or salad, bag of chips, and a slice of their delicious pie! But it only lasts until 3:00 pm! Located on Main St. in Historic Julian.
Mom's Pies is one of the places that makes Julian famous! Their Wynola location is also within walking distance and you won't find it as crowded as the one located on Main St in Julian!
California Mountain Bakery is right next door to Heroes Wood-Fired Pizza, and across from Jeremy's on the Hill. Voted best apple pie in California by Yelp!
Julian Pie Company is also a popular destination for pies. Just like Mom's, there is a location on Main St in Julian but we recommend the less crowded location in nearby Santa Ysabel.
Feel free to get your meal to go, and enjoy a picnic at Fort Cross!
