If you grew up eating apple pie made the old fashioned way by previous generations, this will be a slice of childhood for you. And if not, it's still the best apple pie you will ever eat. This is a MUST when you're in Julian. And even if you're not in Julian, when you visit San Diego, it's worth the... More

While in Julian, we were highly recommended to visit Julian Pie Co specifically. We were far from disappointed. We had the naturally sweetened Dutch apple pie with cinnamon ice cream. Both tasted perfect. They have tens of other flavors. They sell by slice and by pie. They also sell frozen pies that you can carry back home and wow your... More

While in Julian, your gonna have 2 choices for pie; Mother's or The Julian Apple Pie Company. Go with the Julian pie. Mother's has a cute shop where you can watch them make pies through the window and get a slice. But the Julian pie is better, maybe because it's sweeter? Whatever the case, it's the better pie.

Buy a slice & then take home a whole pie. Your friends and family will want one, too. This place has perfected the apple pie, so why not share?

We came here after going to Mom's and had a not so pleasant experience. We are glad we did. They opened at 0900 on a Monday. We got a dutch apple pie to take home for my husband's birthday. We also got two apple donuts. All very good. Our friends enjoy the apple pie. I will definitely come back here... More

The first time I visited Julian, about a decade ago, I was with my parents, and for whatever reason (long lines, lack of seating, price?) they didn't want to sit down and have a slice of apple pie. But that's what you do in Julian, right? The area's know for apples, and when you visit Julian you just have to... More

I didn't get too fancy with it, I went for the original apple pie with vanilla ice cream, but this was the best apple pie I have ever had bar none. We drove out from San Diego just to get this pie on the recommendation of my sister, and it was well worth the drive.

We took our motorcycle out to Julian and wandered around the town for a bit before deciding to stop here for a pie. The pie was superb! We all had different varieties of pies, all of which were amazing. The indoor seating is pretty cramped, but there is outdoor seating, provided the weather is favorable. Definitely worth a visit to... More
