I decided to dedicate an entire blog post to Cafe Juli because it’s one of my favorite cafes in the world. I ate there twice over the course of a short, four-day trip in Aachen. I cannot speak highly enough about Cafe Juli. Cafe Juli is a vegetarian restaurant with organic products. If you are in Aachen, this is my #1 recommended restaurant.
On my first visit to Cafe Juli, I was welcomed by the warm ambiance and smell of fresh baked goods. The first day I went was on a Friday around 1pm, and it was relatively empty. The waiters said I could sit wherever I like, so I found a cozy corner with a comfy chair. The mismatched furniture and displays of baked goods really add to the cozy feeling Cafe Juli exudes.
The second day we went was on a Sunday right when Cafe Juli opened, and the restaurant was packed. The waiter squeezed us in at a table that had a reservation in an hour, so we ate quickly. I recommend making a reservation on weekends or showing up right when Cafe Juli opens to snag one of the few open tables.
Cafe Juli offers an English menu, and some of the waiters speak English. I showed the waiter my list of food allergies, which I had translated to German. She noted my allergies and confirmed that the meal I ordered was safe for me to eat.
I ordered the basic breakfast both days, and it was nothing short of scrumptious. It consisted of a warm roll, cheeses, apple slices, a hard boiled egg, jam, a small salad, and a healthy dose of the best butter I’ve ever had. I am obsessed with their butter; it had to be homemade.
I also enjoyed a refreshing iced caramel latte and a pumpkin spice latte. I was thrilled to have a pumpkin spice latte in late November, which normally doesn’t happen in the United States. My mouth is watering just writing this post. I hope if you find yourself in Aachen that you eat at Cafe Juli.
