Good news – Julia’s Café & Books is reopening on Tuesday, May 19, with temporary hours of Tuesday – Saturday, 10am – 4pm! Like all businesses, there will be some restrictions in place when we reopen, but we’re doing our best to serve the community in flexible and – most importantly – safe ways.

  • The full beverage menu with limited food options (for either walk-up or curbside delivery)

  • Guests will be counted with the 15 allowed inside at a time
  • Book & media aisles will be widened and transitioned to one-way aisles
