Julian was a gold rush town. When the gold dried up in the 1860's or so apple trees were planted. Just about every restaurant on Julian's main street offers some kind of apple dessert. Julian Pie Company was my favorite. We got the regular apple pie made with apple cider and not sugar! After you purchase your food sit on... More

Although there are many apple pie restaurants in Julian, this is usually considered the best. Their apple pie ala mode is the very best.

I like this place better than Moms Pie House in the middle of town. As far as pies go, both of them are pretty close as far as excellent quality and taste. The thing that tips the balance for me is the location is better than Moms, theres seating inside as well as a front patio and an outside rear... More

Fresh apple pies and pastries, ready to top with cinnamon ice cream, caramel, or just plain. We like the one in Santa Ysabel. They have a nice patio for enjoying a leisurely dessert, coffee, tea, or other drink. If it's timed right, you can watch the apples being peeled in the big machinery.

Despite there are many competitors my wife and I prefer Julian Pie Company. They have a great selection of pies with our favorites being the dutch apple and pumpkin apple. Their pie crust Apple Memories are also excellent.

The line can be ridiculously long, especially during the Fall peak season when you're looking at a 30+ minute wait... There is only one unisex bathroom...it too can be 30+ minutes... This place is way too small and cramped inside. Compared to the supermarkets...$13.95 is a lot of money for an apple pie... BUT ITS THE BEST BEST BEST DUTCH... More

The apple and rhubarb pies were delicious, not too sweet, not too tart, just the right amount of everything. Before leaving Julian, we had to try their famous pies, and I wasn't disappointed at all!!

Great pie shop with a large selection of fresh and frozen (unbaked) pies. Love the natural apple pie made with no added sugar.

The pies are warm and fresh and the place is packed. On a Sunday afternoon, we waited at least 25 minutes and I was somewhat underwhelmed when we finally ate the pies. For a such a long wait, the pies here are really nothing special. By the time we reached the order counter, they had ran out of almost all... More
