THE ABSOLUTE BEST PIE IN THE AREA!!!!

This truly is the best pie in town (the area). We did a taste test the last time we were in town and tried every pie shop. This one beat out the others by far. They use produce from the area in the pies. Great with helping out your area!!! PLUS, the town should be paying them for water... read more

It should be a crime to have pie that tastes this good. The crust and crumble topping were perfect and the apples and peaches fresh as can be. My husband had the caramel apple crumble and it was decadent. We both agreed this was the best pie we've ever eaten.

Our family was stationed in San Diego with the Navy 20 years ago and now our sons are stationed there. Anytime we visit, we continue the tradition of driving to charming Julian to have lunch, do some shopping and of course visit Julian Pie Company to buy their delicious apple pies. It's a lovely drive and a friendly place nestled... More

There are a number of pie shops in Julian but our family likes Julian Pie Co the best. We are particular about the crust and appreciate the buttery and slightly crisp crust. The Apple Boysenberry is really good.

Julian is a nice little town with some old charm to it. If you want to taste some nice apple pie, or any kind of pie for that matter, Julian Pie Company is a great stop. It's like you take away sandwich place for pies. There are only a few tables inside but when the weather is good you can... More

Cute little town in the mountains above San Diego, with a great little pie place. Dutch apple with a scoop of ice cream is my favorite.

I was driving through and wanted a bite to eat. I was anticipating lunch, but I saw this cute little place and popped in for a piece of Julian apple pie. I opted for the Dutch apple pie a la mode, and it was delicious. The presentation was a bit careless, though - a big shapeless blob of ice cream... More

We were told about the town of Julian famous for it's apples so on our tour we saw the pie company. Stopped in had a great piece of multi berry pie as well as a piece of apple pie, both warm and with ice cream. Excellent flavour, firmness and a nice cozy atmosphere.
