We are so very happy to announce that Julian Tea is reopening on June 1st for shopping and dine in food service (see our Reopening Menu below). For now, we plan to be open 7 days a week from 10 AM to 4 PM for public shopping, offer dine in food service Thursday thru Monday by pre order reservations only and be open for shopping only on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are also offering private shopping time slots by reservation between 9-10 AM, so call us at (760) 765-0832 or send us an email at info@juliantea.com to make your dine-in or private shopping reservations (please include your phone number so we can call you to confirm).

Please be assured that your health and our staff’s health is Julian Tea’s top priority. In accordance with the County of San Diego’s Department of Environmental Health guidelines for Safe Onsite Dining, we are implementing frequent cleaning and disinfecting procedures throughout the shop and in the tea room between seatings, limiting the number of people in the tea room and shop at any given time and ensuring proper social distancing at all times. We will be enforcing a strict protocol of requiring face masks to be worn while in our shop (except when seated at your table) and use of hand sanitizer upon entry. Due to the increased cleaning and disinfecting procedures required in the tea room between seatings, our seating times will be set at 1 hour 15 minutes to allow adequate cleaning time between each seating.

We will be offering our annual Father’s Day Lunch and Tea (in addition to our Reopening Menu below) for the week of Thursday June 18th through Monday June 22nd. Bring your Dad, Granddad, Son or other special Father Figure in your life to enjoy our Extra Manly Menu choices! The Hearty Lunch includes a meatloaf sandwich, choice of loaded potato soup or pumpkin soup and brownie sundae dessert, or our traditional Cottage Classic Tea includes a choice of loaded potato soup or pumpkin soup, a variety of finger sandwiches and savories, scone, and brownie sundae dessert.
