Julian is a very beautiful city and it worths going there to see the old town and stroll in Main Street. But do not return home without tasting Julian Apple Pie. I would personally recommend the Dutch apple pie with a crust to die for.

So Julian is known for its pies---this is the best of the burg, with outdoor seating plus. Expect a crowd on weekends, but the line moves fast.

Loved this cute place. We were on our way to the Anza- Barrego desert and had to screech to a stop when we saw Julian Pie Co. We split the mountain berry crumble apple pie, warmed, with a giant scoop of delicious vanilla ice cream on it. The help was efficient and nice. We sat on stools at a window... More

Best Apple pie in Julian! Though I love Mom's Pie shop this place has better flavor and crust. Staff is extra friendly. Not such a long wait as other places. Really gets you in the good feel of this little mountain town in San Diego County. Been here several times and always recommend Julian Pie shop as a "thing to... More

This was my first visit to the hill town of Julian on a cold, windy and rainy day. The weather was so taxing that it was very difficult to get out of the car. With layers and layers of cloth, we manged to find a decent roadside parking and got out of it soon. We were able to walk to... More

I am not a big pie person but OMG this pie was amazing. We had a large slice of apple dutch with vanilla ice cream and a hot cider. It was by far the best apple pie I have ever eaten. My son had a slice of pecan pie really enjoyed it as well.

After years of hearing Julian pies were the best in the world, we finally tried one. There was a long line for the inside, but the "secret" side line for a whole pie was way shorter, which was good because that's what we were there for. After returning home and baking it, we agreed. The hype is real. The pie... More

My wife and I hoped to sample and purchase several types of pies for Thanksgiving; however we waited until 2:30 PM to get-in-line. By the time we were able to order (3 PM), the only types of pie available that we wanted to try were Dutch Apple Crumb and Caramel Dutch Apple Crumb. I had the Dutch Caramel Apple Pie... More

My husband and I were hiking in Mont Gower were we encounter a very nice hiker who gave us some useful information about another trail and the delicious apple pie in Santa Ysabel. We pass the place on our way to Cuyamaca but we decide to reward us after the hike, well the waiting was more than justified not only... More
