Today’s Groupon gets you $25 worth of drinks and yummy dishes at eco-friendly Julia’s Restaurant for $10. With four locations to choose from (Queen Anne, Issaquah, Wallingford, and Capitol Hill), there are plenty of opportunities to enjoy the culinary wonder of local eats.
Twenty-five years ago, the culinary artists at Julia’s were taking raw ingredients from the towns around them to assemble delightfully healthy meals cooked with loving attention. Breakfast-heads will love the dedication cooked into each bite of the hobo breakfast (three scrambled eggs with potatoes, bacon, peppers, onions, tomatoes, and toast, $10) or the poison-free Socrates’ Revenge omelet (with feta, peppers, tomato, herbs, black olives, and onion, $10). The dinner hour rings in a menu full of homemade pizzas including the veggie pizza ($12) and then expands out to the blue-cheese burger ($11) and cashew-ginger stir fry (with tofu or chicken, local veggies, soy garlic-sesame sauce, and rice pilaf, $14).
Despite its successful expansions to locations in Queen Anne, Issaquah, Wallingford, and Capitol Hill, Julia’s has never and will never be a chain churning out traditional stock recipes. Each location has its own individual voice; the original Broadway restaurant features live music from local musicians, and the Queen Anne has its own English garden and private wine cellar for private wines.
Good food and good entertainment will always have a faithful audience. With a green philosophy and a committed recycling program that has earned the mayor’s recognition as an exemplary green business, Julia’s is a Seattle staple that will always know its hometown roots—no matter what its celebrity status.

What You Didn’t Know: Famous Julias
Julia is an approachable name, leading many people to think that we know all there is to know about some famous Julias. Here are some Julia facts you didn’t know:
Julia Child: More than nine-and-a-half feet tall, her kitchen was specially designed to accommodate her towering height and immense strength. The kitchen’s most notable feature was its many chloroform gas nozzles to knock out the star chef when she flew into one of her many uncontrollable rages.
Julia Roberts: Took a break from acting after giving birth to fraternal twins, only to discover that both twins were evil.
Gaston Julia: This French mathematician who lost his nose in World War I became well known for his work with fractals, which is amazing considering that most people who have no nose become famous for that reason.
