Visited Julian and discovered Apple Valley Bakery. Enjoyed lunch in the outdoors and the Caramel Apple Pecan Pie was excellent.

We did not visit the restaurant but were staying at a Julian B&B that served outstanding apple pie every day.We told our innkeeper It was better than any of the apple pies we had previously had in Julian and he said it was from the Apple Alley Bakery.

There is a lot of really good pie in Julian, but Apple Alley is among the best. We really tried to eat as much pie as possible on our recent trip - The Caramel Apple Pecan, and the Cherry Apple were great, as was everything. We stayed at Pine Haven Cabin, which was a very sweet place, and our dog,... More

While the pie was superior, the hostess who directed us to a public restroom across the street neglected to mention to my wife that the restrooms require a coin. Were it not for a kind soul with a quarter to spare, she would have had to trudge back to change a bill (we don't always carry change these days). The... More

Apple Alley Baker was recommended for their apple mango pie and it was delicious. We didn't even have it with ice cream, just heated up and enjoyed it with a bottle of water. (The high altitudes dehydrate.) Milk or coffee may have been just as good but it was delicious, so try to eat it slow because you'll want to... More

If you want to try everything they have, get a lunch special! Sammich, soup, and PIE! Famous Julian Pie! Of course, it's apple pie because it's Julian. But that doesn't make it not awesome. This is THE place to go for Caramel Apple Pecan Pie. Julian Pie Company is the place to go for regular apple, but come here for... More
