Wow!! Amazing pies

I do not know what else to say besides that the pies are amazing. The bakery is small and has a few tables inside as well as outside. You will not regret trying a slice!

An odd little bakery. Went there in the morning, got a slice of gluten free pie for breakfast. Heated in the microwave. We were the only customers. Seemed like we were bothering the woman behind the counter.

I love their tarts. I had a boysenberry tart with a little heart on it. (I thought it was cute) It was very good and not too sweet so i enjoyed it a lot. It was 1.50 which isnt too bad and I really liked it so i would come back to get another one the next time i visit

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 bakeries in town. As we walked in, we felt... 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!
