Delicious pie here! Everyone in San Diego knows about this place and it doesn't disappoint. The apple pie is classic..,but I am a fan of the pecan pie. Tip: There is a nice seating area in the back of the restaurant that is less crowded than the patio you see when you walk in.

Out of all of the pies we tried at this bakery (all yummy), the apple pie was by far the best! There is something about the way they make the filling that had us saying "mmmm" so many times, I lost count! I would love to have this type of bakery in my home town! Fresh, homemade and full of...

Yes, we had pies here too. The Mountain Crumb, with apples and an assortment of berries, with a crumb topping was delicious. Plus, they offer take and bakes, and also a chicken pot pie - although I'm not really sure why. Cinnamon ice cream here is reportedly really yummy, but I didn't try any. Very small inside, but cute patio... More

Excellent bakery. I wish this country had more bakeries like this one. Taste great and the atmosphere of Julian is hard to beat.

A good selection of fruit pies as well as a savory chicken pie. Mainly apple varieties. We tasted many and found them all to be good, but not unique or better than most diners or restaurants where they make their own pies. There is nothing else to do, see or go to in Julian, so the pie shop draws people... More

My 12 year old was on a mission to find the place that sold the best pie and this was it! The service was efficient and friendly. We brought home 3 pies to friends and family.

We accidentally ended up in Santa Ysabel, Ca, which has the second pie store. I had wanted to go to Julian, but we turned the other way and ended up doing a loop and drove literally right into the Pie Store parking lot. And it was ten minutes before they close. It was meant to be!!! We had the apple... More

Julian Pie Co.has grown since its inception, a little over thirty years ago, to be a big pie seller company. However, the taste of the original apple pie has a very traditional, home made flavor. The texture of the dough and the balance between sweetness and tartness of the filling is just right. Very pleased with the experience of going... More

My husband and I visited Julian one afternoon in March. I bought the caramel Dutch apple pie from here and took it home with us. It was delicious! If I make it back there I will definitely return for more. Cute little cafe too.
