We were on our way to the desert and we stopped in Julian. Had no idea it was a pie mecca. We had the original pie and cinnamon ice cream. Wow! As an afterthought, we bought the apple cider donuts. Wow again. Great place and great food.

While living in Julian, it became my responsibility to provide the desert wherever I went! Because, of course, it was always Apple Pie!

The pies were wonderful... warm and fresh with icecream on top. I went for the regular pie with vanilla ice cream and it was awesome. I cant remember what my husband ordered but I remember it was better than mine - some flaky pie with cinnamon ice cream. The only con - long line and a little cramped considering the... More

This is not the best "restaurant in town" but they do have the best pies. Careful it is very popular and the line can be out the door (welcome to California). We enjoyed not only the apple but also ordered the strawberry rhubarb (yum!). We even picked up an extra frozen pie that we baked when we got home with... More

No cream pies!! But very good fruit pies and combinations of fruits too: Flaky crust, served warm....with whipped cream, cheddar cheese, or ice cream (either vanilla or cinnamon) Try the cinnamon with original apple pie because it is really good.

Best apple pie ever. We bought a frozen one to enjoy later. We enjoyed the outside seating (inside is rather small). We'll be back next time we are in Julian.

We had lunch at this restaurant. It was wonderful. Good Chili with lots of beans and chunks of meat.....the corn bread was really good. My husband had half a turkey sandwich on a good wheat bread. Now the pies were wonderful!!! I had the mixed berry/apple with a crumble topping. He had the mountain berry/apple also with crumble topping. Yummy....wished... More

I had the "Natural" apple pie, which is unsweetened and made with golden delicious apples. I don't believe I've had a pie made with golden delicious before, so was very curious how it would be. I was very impressed. Not adding a lot of sweetener kept the pie from being too cloying, and allowed the delicate flavors of the golden... More

We enjoyed the town of Julian for shopping and our best purchase was a dutch apple pie from The Julian Pie Company. (We didn't realize that we could have also enjoyed lunch there as we noted other doing so.) We took the pie home, warmed each piece and topped them with vanilla bean ice cream - delicious!!! The pie was... More

The top crust was so flaky it evaporated in your mouth, and the pie was stuffed with fruit not fillers. Don't add toppings, the pastry is too good to share attention with something on top. The coffee and tea are excellent too. Now I wish I had bought some donuts.
