Delicious pie and a beautiful garden! (Wynola location)

My mom and I loved walking through the picnic/garden area at the Mom's Pie House location in Wynola. We tried the apple pie, the rhubarb strawberry pie, and the bumbleberry pie - each was well crafted and absolutely delicious! The garden has nice picnic tables, lots of spring flowers in bloom and... read more

I came here midweek to pick up an apple pie. Unlike the weekends, where the line is out the door, there's literally no one inside the restaurant midweek, and you get pick of wherever you want to sit. I would have liked to have tried the pie there at the store, but unfortunately we had a late breakfast and no... More

On our previous visit to Julian, my girlfriend and I had coffee and apple pie at Julian Pie Company, so on our next visit, this time with my parents, we decided to give Mom’s Pie House a try. We visited the town on a weekday, and found most of the stores almost empty, in stark contrast to the situation on... More

Loved all the cookies and the apple dumplings. Too much to try in one weekend so we need to go back and try some more delicious baked pies.

Went to this place yesterday, long queue. While in line I asked the person rolling out pies behind the counter what pies he recommended, his surly reply: "THERE'S A SIGN ON THE WALL!" Ouch. I kept quiet and waited. The ladies at the cashier station were much friendlier and made suggestions. This extends the ordering process - if the man... More

We drive all the way out from San Diego to Julian for some famed pie. We chose to share a slice of flaky crust apple pie and crumb crust apple ruby pie. Both were great but the ruby was definitely the winner.

Best salted caramel chocolates and pie! Cute and friendly place that opens up early! We had the apple pie and bought some of the chocolates that the inn provided as well. Highly recommend going.

Also known as Mom's Pies etc., it's been a long time since I passed through Julian without coming away with one of Mom's Apple Crumb pies. We go the long way around to visit my friend in Alpine just to stop at Mom's, even though they can be purchased at many San Diego County grocery stores and there is a... More

I bought a Boysenberry and Apple pie to take home. Tasted as good as it looked. The pie did not last long, it was demolished at 2 sittings.

I've only gotten 2 whole pies here to go on 2 separate occasions, but both times they were unbelievably delicious. Apple-Boysenberry Crumb and Strawberry-Apple-Boysenberry-Blueberry Crumb the second time. When we got home, we opened the box and the pie smelled like a giant donut; it was unreal! Recommend you preheat your oven to around 300F and let warm; don't nuke... More
