The pies are warm and fresh and the place is packed. On a Sunday afternoon, we waited at least 25 minutes and I was somewhat underwhelmed when we finally ate the pies. For a such a long wait, the pies here are really nothing special. By the time we reached the order counter, they had ran out of almost all... More

Julian itself in a nice meander from San Diego, unfortunately the trip there shows you what happens with drought and fire as Lake Cuyamaca is quite low and has lost a lot of surface area and the barren trees that remain from the last large inferno still poke out and above the new growth. the town is quaint definitely relying...

I placed an order online to have 2 pies shipped to my Connecticut address. The pies arrived and one was damaged, Julian Pie Company, specifically Maureen, couldn't have been any nicer about replacing the pie and issuing a credit for the shipping. The pies are outstanding, they have a delicate buttery crust, very flavorful, the fruit, not too sweet or... More

Delicious apple pie and cinnamon ice cream. They actually sell a wide variety of pies and they all look delicious, but we just wanted to try the apple. It is exactly like the type I make and the ice cream was very light and not too sweet. Beautiful, quaint little town, as well. Affordable at $3.50 per large slice!

Debated about going to Mom's or Julian Pie. We choose Julian Pie and very happy. Recommended to try the cinnamon ice cream with pie and what a winner! We went back the next morning to buy pies to take home. Peach Apple Crumb and Apple Pie. Many others to choose from.

Unbelievable. Gastronomic success! Do not miss a slice of heaven at Julian Pie co. It is THAT good. PLus they actually give you enough ice cream with your slice! This is probably the best pie I have ever eaten. Tastes like you are a kid back at your grandma's table.

The Julian Pie Company has the best Apple pie I've ever tasted. It is made even more special if you add a scoop of their Cinnamon Ice Cream on top. Yum! And we always stop on our way out of town to buy a couple pies to take home for friends.

No trip to Julian is complete until you get an apple pie from this place, take one to go! The restroom seems to be busy, for whatever reason.

You can either walk up to the pie order window if in a hurry, or enter their warm inviting establishment for a hospitable meal, and of course their famous apple pie. We rolled into town after dark, but found the light in their windows to be a yummy beacon luring us in. So glad we made it before closing time.... More

My husband and I shared a slice of caramel apple pie ala Mode and a peanut butter cookie and it was like heaven! We normally don't eat bad, but this was worth the indulgence! You can't go to Julian without experiencing pie from Julian Pie Company…and you can't have apple pie without experiencing it with ice cream! They offered other... More
