I live in CT, but I travel to CA at least once a year, I always like to find good bakeries when I travel as I love my sweets, and I came across Moms Pie House every time I researched online. I ended up ordering pies online, and got 4 mini pies delivered. Mom and I shared the Ruby pie... More

No doubt every pie they make is superb but I had the Apple Crumb and added cinnamon ice cream with it. YUM,!

This pie house makes some of the best home made pies anywhere. They use the freshest of ingredients, i.e., berries, cherries, apples, and the like. The pies will either remind you of your grandmother's or mother's baking. Also, the small shop carries a nice selection of jams, honey, avocado oil, olive oil, and sauces. The staff is also warm and... More

As usual, I will probably give Mom's a second try before I decide to give up on them but as a first time visitor I was not impressed. Now, it was not like I had a problem or anything was bad, it was just not great. Therefore I must rate them as average and give them a likewise three star... More

We stopped here for apple pie on our recent visit and it was well worth it. Very nice place and lots of other choices besides apple. Would have like to try several.

Mom's pies are the best! If you don't mind standing in line for a bit, and not necessarily having a place to sit, then definitely stop by for a piece of pie, or take one to go. I had the apple/boysenberry pie with a scoop of ice cream, and it was to die for. I definitely regret not taking a... More

We did a sunrise drive to the mountains on a recent trip to San Diego. People told us about Mom's in Julian and it was wonderful. It felt homey as there were lots of locals having coffee in there. We opted for pie and ice cream for breakfast. We were happy campers! Then we walked it off on a nearby... More

The scent of freshly baked pies drew us in to have an afternoon snack. Despite the prominence of apple pies and dumplings, we opted for a piece of pecan and a piece of rhubarb strawberry. Both were excellent with flaky crust and plenty of filling.

We decided that since we were in the apple country of Julian, that we had to have a couple of slices of pie. We are glad that we did. The pies were great. The banter that we had with the staff was very good. They are friendly people. A place isn't just about the product but also about the people... More
