“Best little hangout in town”
Reviewed February 20, 2012

Off the beaten path and on a side street, but my wife and I have this place on our list of places to grab a bite. The line for pies does not exist here, but in my opinion, the pies at The Candied Apple are second to none in Julian. The other pastries are also top notch. This place is not very big and so seating can be a problem. However, if you are not in a big hurry and can wait for a table I would recommend you stop, sit a spell, and enjoy a delicious sandwich and pastry or pie.

“Seriously...if you go to Julian and miss The Candied Apple, you haven't been to Julian!!”
Reviewed January 7, 2012

O.K....I know you all want to go to Julian to eat apple pie at Moms but seriously....in reality it isn't that good and what are you waiting in line for when The Candied Apple is just around the corner...literally!!

Inside you will more than likely find both Ben and Charles..the baker...Master Baker...we are not talking greasy donuts here. You might find a lavendar pear tart...you might find my personal favoriate..Pumpkin Chocolate Chip cookies...incredible muffins and breads and they also serve a fabulous lunch. Are you traveling with someone who is Gluten Free...Charles to the RESCUE...for your GF friends you will find incredible GF Florentines, GF Brownies and delectable macaroons...soooo good... Top is all off with a fine cup of coffee and go take a LONG HIKE....
