By the slice, whole, baked or frozen: PIE!

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... read more

This little place just west of the heart of Julian is quite adorable. It is very well-kept and inviting. There are places to sit both outside and inside. Though we didn't sit for a meal, we did buy a whole pie and found it delicious with just the right balance of spices, sweetness and tartness. I am brewing coffee now... More

Stopped by in the morning just before we were leaving town and picked up two pies to take home with us! They were great!

I have been to Julian Pie Company for their famous Apple Crumb pies for years. It is really the best. Actually, I have never tasted a bad pie from there yet. When I try to eat other pies, I always feel that they cannot stack up to this company's pies. It is located in a really quaint town of Julian.... More

If you happen to come to this remote town you just stop by and try the pies. This company is the most famous one in town and usually has quiet a line for being such a small town I really enjoyed staying here to get away from the hustle of Los Angeles and coming here every night and having pie...

In the little town of Julian this is a gem. Great pies, and love the apple cider donuts. If the line is long in a busy tourist weekend they do have a larger bakery down the hill at Santa Ysabel next to Don's Market . So you can grab a lie or two on the way home. I know they... More

Stayed at the Orchard Hill Country Inn and received a coupon for a free pie. This bakery has a great selection of tasty pies and treats bit of you're looking for the best apple pies in Julian there are better pies to be found. The Julian Pie Co. rates a solid #2 in my book.

My husband is an apple pie eater and it was nice that you could have melted cheese, ice cream (either vanilla or cinnamon) and carmel and/or cinnamon sauce on top. We split one slice and that was plenty. We also bought some "memories" which are pie crusts in cookie size with sugar and cinnamon and those were nice as well.... More

The line took forever. Once it was our turn to get the pies, half the selection was sold out. The pies we tried were okay and the portions were a good size and they didn't skimp on the ice cream.
