Julian California-The Miners Diner-
One hour east of San Diego in the beautiful Cuyumaca Mountains is the historic town of Julian
Visitors may find themselves visiting a mining museum,exploring a mine runner or old cemetery, browsing the mountain scenery, shopping in historic buildings, eating famous apple pie or visiting an old fashioned soda fountain.
The Miners Diner in the center of town offers hand mixed milkshakes and malts, ice cream, burgers, fries and an all around classic menu.
The soda fountain also offers a hand mixed Sarsaparilla. This soft drink from the 1800’s was popular in the “Old West”. At the Miners diner it is made with rootbeer, wintergreen, and sassafras oil. It looks like a dark like “rooter”. Native Americans also used it to treat the common cold.
So if you’re a pioneer of nostalgia, you will find it here in Julian, and maybe you’ll be lucky enough to strike some gold of your own. 🙂
Happy trails and thanks for visiting
