Great Pie, No Restrooms

We ordered the Lunch Special which included sandwich, chips, and pie. My wife and I both ordered the Apple Caramel Pecan pie. The restaurant was quaint, the pie was wonderful, but the restroom is across the street, behind a building, at public pay toilets, which somehow annoyed me. Next time we... read more

The restaurant was quaint, the pie was wonderful, but the restroom is across the street, behind a building, at public pay toilets, which somehow annoyed me. Next time we will just order a whole pie to go.

I had the salad which was crisp, fresh and cold. Another of our group said the soup was excellent. The pie slice was good size and delicious. There... More

You will see lines of people across the street at Moms Apple Pie which does a good job but whose popularity is to some extent because of its Main Street Location and window watching pies being made--Walk across the street to Apple Alley and I believe you will have the Best Pies that Julian has to offer! I bet I... More

I had a gluten free, dairy free apple pie that was amazing and also a gfdf turkey sandwich. Everything was tasty, and it was wonderful being able to eat next to my wheat eating family and friends.

We heard about this restaurant on Trip advisor and visited after the Eagle mine tour. We both had the half sandwich, salad, and pie special. At only $10 it's quite the bargain and really delicious. My husband absolutely loved the boysenberry apple pie. We'll visit again.

A local at the Gold Mine (it was a GR8 tour) suggested this place to us and it was a great value with their lunch and pie (a la mode) special for $10 from 11-3. The potato soup tasted homemade and the salad was fresh and crisp. Our 1/2 turkey sandwich was made to order, ample & tasty . The... More

It is so hard to find a gluten-free pie any where! Purchased a whole gluten -free boysenberry apple pie! It was so very delicious! Certainly will be craving this pie when I arrive back home! Will be back next time I am back in San Diego.
