Why “Juniper”?

Juniper is Mattie and Celia’s daughter’s name.


What are the birds on the sign about?

Those are Guinea Fowl, or “Guinea Hens” as Sam calls them. Celia grew up in the Knob Creek area and when she was young, there was always a flock of these hens standing in the middle of W. Oakland Avenue as you drove around the curve where Juniper is now located. We would always have to slow down to let them scatter. Sam would then make a joke about Benny Hinn, the Preacher. You can also find “Ginny” the Guinea on our kid’s menu!

Fun fact: a group of guinea fowl is called a confusion


What’s that big old building beside you?

That is The Bashor-Denny Mill that was built sometime before 1832. It is a great piece of the Historic Knob Creek District. If you'd like to find out more, please visit our up-hill neighbors at The Knob Creek Historical Museum.


Do you take reservations?

Yes- we prefer them! Reservations ensure your time slot and table will be ready for you upon your arrival. You can download the "Tock" reservation app on your smart phone, follow the link on our website, or give us a call to make your reservation. 


How do I make reservations with you?

We use a reservation app called Tock. If you search "Tock" in your phone's App Store, it will come up as 'Tock- Restaurant Reservations' (Blue background with a white broken circle icon)! 

You can also follow the "Reservations" button on our website.


Do you accept parties of 8+ people?

For parties of 8 or more, please call for availability.  


Do you host private events?

Yes! Please choose the “private events” tab on our website to view our event spaces and options.


Are you open for lunch?

We will only be open for dinner for the foreseeable future, but we will open at 4pm, so you can come grab a late lunch/ early supper with us.

We post regularly to our instagram account @juniperjc (see the instagram icon at the bottom left of this page). You can also find updates on this website! 


Is Celia selling cakes?

Wow! Thanks for asking! Once we get into the groove, she will be offering custom cakes for in-house and off-site celebrations.
