Our History in Fish Creek

The history of Julie’s Park Cafe & Motel began in 1997 when Julie Giller purchased the Black Locust Restaurant and converted it to Julie’s Park Cafe. The motel was called the Peninsula Motel. Julie completely remodeled the cafe and changed the menu entirely. Today, Julie’s Park Cafe is quite unique among Door County cafes and Fish Creek, WI lodging.
