Great Dutch Apple Pie

I've had pie in a restaurant before, but not like this. I ordered Dutch Apple Pie Alamode and received the most delicious pie slightly warmed with a generous helping of vanilla ice cream. From the first bite until the last was a real enjoyment. It was a hot day on a motorcycle ride and what a... read more

Just read the reviews here, or anywhere else online and its very apparent that the pies here are excellent. There is not much more I can say, and certainly nothing I can say that hasn't already been detailed in previous reviews. The pies are superb. Even on a busy holiday weekend when you see a line 20 deep you can... More

What a great place to meet up with old friends and catch up while eating yummy, warm apple pie and ice cream. Sunshine...conversation...laughter...warm feelings. Just as it should be. That good old fashioned warm country "life is good" release. The drive up was worth it!

When you go to Julian you've got a have some apple pie and a coffee. The Julian Pie Co. Is a perfect place to go not as crowded as the other places the pie and coffee are very good

You can easily start a local argument about who makes the best apple pie in Julian. Mom's is the most famous and very good but we prefer "Julian Pie" located on Farmers Road a block from the 4-way stop intersection. A friendly place with good coffee. (only a buck if you have your own cup). Wifi if you need it.... More

This is a "must do" when you visit Julian. They make really good pies. A variety of flavors are offered with apple the favorite. The crusts make the difference so get what you like best. Two large slabs of ice cream are placed on top of the slice so you will not run out of ice cream. There is a... More

Took home pieces of 3 of their most popular pie. All were fabulous. Light crust... Not to sweet and fantastic in taste!

Julian is a small town, a 2 hours drive from San Diego. They are known for their rediculously amazing pies! We've been coming to this place all the time, and when we moved to Florida, I miss this place a lot. But now that we're moving back to California, I'm looking forward to eating many yummy pies!

We stopped here during a cross-country bicycle ride. The apple mountain berry pie with cinnamon ice cream on top was fantastic. The best pie I have eaten on this trip. Donuts and coffee were excellent as well. A convenient location and great service with a friendly staff.

I'd heard raves about the Julian Pie Company, but had never been near enough to Julian to make a detour and pick up a pie. last weekend we were out at Borrego Springs and stopped on the way back on SR-78 to get a pie. My favorite is cherry, so we took home a cherry pie. It was delicious! Firm... More
