Barrett Junction Cafe & Mercantile

Rediscover Highway 94

Highway 94 along the back country is rich in history.  Settlers, battles, Buffalo Soldiers, Indians, horse and cattle ranches are all a part of our stories that have been shared.

When you stop in at the Cafe you will find lots to look at.  Many pictures of the way San Diego County use to look.  Along the back wall of the dining hall you will see pictures of the Dulzura & Barrett Junction families, children, and the cowboys who lived and shared in the history. 

There are many stories, many of which that have gone on with the people who told them.  Many of those families are memorialized in books that share their lives and the making of the back country.  

The Cafe has shared in that history.  The rodeos, building of the Barrett Lake Dam, and much more.

Take a drive and stop in, share in the making of history.  Take a walk around, enjoy the pocket in history.  Most of what is on the menu remains the same, the fish fry, now served Tues to Sun.  The addition of the barbecue ribs and pulled pork by the current owner, Leon.
