“Good but Small”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

There always a long line because it is so small inside for the amount of customers they receive. I've given up and gone to the other bakeries in Julian rather than deal with the long, long lines. I think it's the name that drives people there not realizing there ARE other bakeries in town to go to that are excellent also.

“Best apple pie in town.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

Go early, stand in line. I was okay with the pumpkin pie but really, just get the apple. Actually, get a slice and a full pie to go because you will want more later. It's that good.
Oh, and get the apple cider (hot or cold).

“My husband's favorite apple pie in town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

He likes the apples piled into the crust so it poufs up. The other places are too flat for his taste. I had the pumpkin pie and it was too spiced overpowering the pumpkin and the smooth taste I like. We also tried the pecan and it was a bit gluey. Stick with apple. It is very busy, even on a weekday, you will sit on hard benches and the staff will bring out your pie order. They are very pleasant and prompt.

“More Pie Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Yes we had pie twice and don't regret it! Mom's is cool as you can walk by and see the baking being done and also have numerous varieties to choose from. Don't miss it!

“can't get away with one slice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Friendly people. Tasty pies. They even had a special on plain sugarless apple pie. We took some with us hoping will stay during 2 hour trip to Carlsbad.
The line was well outside the Pie House Sunday for lunch.
