Best pies in Julian

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

This is the ONLY place in Julian with Gluten free pies, not bad! Good vibe, nice outdoor side yard and some indoor seating. Only downside is that the gluten free pies are frozen, but tasted excellent! Gluten free sandwiches etc as well - well done!

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 will just order a whole pie to go.

Lunch was a half sandwich, soup or salad, and a slice of pie for $9.95. It was Great. The sandwich was packed with meat, lettuce, tomato, mayo, mustard & onion if desired. 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
