Smaller bakery feels more homemade!

We ordered two whole pies, one apple and one apple boysenberry crumb, and an apple turnover. Each of the items we tasted were incredible. The prices were better than any other Julian bakery. This is probably the smallest bakery in Julian, and as a result, much less crowded than the other... read more

I really don't understand why people stand in line at other pie shops in Julian. Apple Alley is the best and is actually cheaper and the pies taste better quality to me! My favorite is the caramel apple pecan. Looks really sweet, but it isn't overly sweet at all and is just delicious! Their pumpkin cookies are also FANTASTIC!!! Tourists... More

We stumbled upon this little restaurant with a great shaded courtyard to sit, relax and enjoy a yummy lunch or snack. The lunch special was such a value! Half a sandwich (great bread), with soup or salad, (salad was crisp & so fresh) & best of all, a slice of the best pie we've ever had. Each of us raved... More

My husband and I stopped here for some famous apple pie, and we were not disappointed! They had a few variations on apple pie, so we tried a slice of the caramel pecan apple pie and the boysenberry apple crumble. They warmed them up for us, which I definitely recommend, and we sat outside to eat them. They were truly... More

I asked the locals where they get their pie from. Most of them told me to go here. I was not disappointed. The caramel pecan apple pie was the bomb!

We went there because the pies were recommended and we were not disappointed. However, we also went for their lunchtime deal that included a half sandwich, salad or soup and a slice of any pie. The sandwich had choices of breads and fillings, were generously filled and the salad was good. The pie was the best and of course we... More

Wow! Of all the apples in all the pie joints in all the towns in all the world, this place has the best! I tried the caramel pecan apple pie, and I simply cannot say enough about the flaky crust, not-too-sweet apple yumminess, and the toasty, crunchy pecans rounding out the delicate cinnamon and buttery caramel tango that is this...

Decided to stop for a mid day snack and decided on the pie. Wow this is some of the best store bought pie I've ever had. The boysenberry and apple pies were delicious! They also have gluten free and sugar free selections for those with special diet considerations. In addition they have soup, sandwiches, wraps, and salads available for those... More
