Great Pies

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.

Great Apple Pie, much better than Moms. The best one is Dutch Apple Crumb with Cinnamon Ice Cream. Thats all just pie and coffee.

We can't wait to buy more! Loved the Dutch Apple. Super cute town and absolutely delicious pie! Prices were fair. Skip the slice line and save time buying a whole pie! Once you eat some you'll be glad you did!

Wife and I went to Julian for a Sunday get away. After visiting town and we decided to drive to pie place at the 78 & 79 junction. We got down there and they were out of peach/apple pie. Called back to Julian store and they held one for us. We got 2 pies and we loved one of them.... More

We couldn't leave Julian without buying a Dutch apple pie with Crumb Topping to go from the Julian Pie Company. It's the best apple pie in Julian! Don't miss out!

We drove up from Carlsbad to Julian using this for our GPS target. I tried their strawberry rhubarb with a scoop of cinnamon ice cream, very yummy. SWMBO had natural apple pie with a scoop of vanilla. That, too, was well worth the drive. Be sure to make this a stop in Julian, CA!

Love their fresh, delicious pies topped with a huge scoop of cinnamon ice cream. But their "memories" small apple and heart shaped pie crusts are to die for plus they truly are memories of my childhood. And the cider donuts. Eat the pie there warm with your scoop of ice cream and take home some donuts and "memories".
