“Maybe we shouldn't have asked for melted cheese”
Review of Mom's Pie House

Mom's Pie House
Ranked #2 of 5 Dessert in Julian

We got the apple pie with traditional crust, and had cheddar cheese melted on it. The pie filling was a bit on the sweet side, and the cheddar cheese seemed not too high quality. Also, we're pretty sure that the cheese was melted via microwave, because the crust quality seemed compromised in a way that only the microwave can do.

Dear KHWilson,

Thank you for visiting our pie shop. Since our inception in 1984, we have always used Tillamook cheddar cheese - we consider it to be a quality cheese. I am sorry that you did not enjoy it. Your cheese was melted via microwave. We have hundreds of hungry visitors each day and have no other means at our disposal to reheat single slices of pie. It sounds like your pie was reheated excessively in an effort to melt the cheese, and I am sorry for that error on our part. I will forward your message on to our staff in an effort to improve our quality of service. Thank you for taking the time to review our business.

They have pie and great candy apples. Although my kids like Julian pie company for their pie and moms for the apples, you cant go wrong at either place. Great pie and always so friendly

We live in NJ, and we make a trip to Julian every year the week before Thanksgiving to purchase pies to take back to NJ for Thanksgiving dinner. We love their pies, as do the members of our family that have them for dessert after a big turkey dinner.
