Pie to Write Home About

I'd heard raves about the Julian Pie Company, but had never been near enough to Julian to make a detour and pick up a pie. last weekend we were out at Borrego Springs and stopped on the way back on SR-78 to get a pie. My favorite is cherry, so we took home a cherry pie. It was delicious! Firm... read more

Who can visit Julian, Ca. and not indulge in what they are most famous for? Apple pie! Heated apple pie ala mode. What more can be said? Scrumptious!!

Julian is a historic gold rush mountain town an hour from San Diego known for their apples. The coolness of the fall weather make these apples perfect for pie that is sold here. People familiar with the area, give their orders to those who are traveling to Julian. Sit down, relax with a slice of pie (with a scoop of... More

We shared a piece of pie after our lunch and ate it out on the rear deck. Quite an operation -- the real deal with efficient ordering, servers, and outstanding pie.

We have visited Julian several times but somehow missed the Julian Pie Company until now. I won't repeat that mistake. While I think they also serve other food, I was interested in the pie and waited a while in line to get one. There are several types, but the Apple Mountain Berry was recommended and I was glad I followed... More

Homer would really love this place. Had just cycled up from Borrego Springs, so the caveat is we were hungry. Dutch Apple was excellent. Bring your pie pants, it's super rich.

So yeah, the reviews are all true. It is the best place in Julian. This is why people come to Julian. I've come to Julian only four times but its worth the drive out just for the Pie. But of course there is lots of other fun stuff in Julian. Seriously best pie you will ever eat. Better then even... More

We stopped by the main facility a few miles out of Juilan for a pie on the way home. We bought frozen and cooked it ourselves. It was a wonderful pie and we had dessert and breakfast for several days.

Since I was a kid, my memories of Julian always ended at the Julian Pie Company. This place has amazing pies, never disappointed. They have a variety of pies,my favorite is the Dutch Apple pie with Carmel. Yum. Yum. Can't resist every time I pass through. There are many pie places in Julian, but this one outshines them all!

A stop for Julian Pie Company pie is almost a ritual with us (as I suspect it is with most people traveling through the area). We occasionally eat a slice here, but we're much more likely to buy 1 or 2 whole pies, either already baked or frozen ready-to-bake. The tough part is choosing among the varieties. The standard apple... More
