Come for the apple pies but get the garlic fries!

My wife loves coming here every year to get our pies and apple cider but I come for the garlic fries. Lots of fresh garlic like no other place I've had. Abel's has a full bakery and candy shop with lots of vendors selling arts and crafts. There are kids activities to keep them busy too. Not a very big... More

I love Abels! One of my favorite stops at Apple Hill. There are several different types of pies, covered apples, booths, pony rides, and shops. I bought a marionberry pie, and it was excellent. I highly recommend this stop up in Apple Hill.

Great pies. You can but a slice to eat while you are there, and buy a fresh or frozen pie to talk home. Unfortunately, I agree with some earlier comments on the negative side. This place, and Apple Hill in general, are becoming victims of success. It is getting so crowded, it is not enjoyable--weekends and holidays in the autumn... More

We have been visiting Abel's since we moved to El Dorado County in 1988. The fritters are my favorite, but other family members love their donuts. The eating area is nice, the vendors and activities during Apple Hill season are fun.

This is another Apple Hill spot I love to stop in to visit during Apple Hill season. They have apples, crafts, pumpkins kids activities and other homemade goodies for purchase for yourself or as gifts.

Abel's is no longer a must stop at place for us while visiting Placerville and Apple Hill. My last trip in April was a huge disappointment. They have take n over the vacant lot across the street so that just means they pack more people in and it gets totally chaotic. There are separate lines for purchasing apples and baked... More

We didn't purchase any apple products so I'm not reviewing them on that aspect. We stopped here while looking for a place to eat. Parking was difficult to get in and out of. There were a lot of craft sellers with tents set up but items looked of low quality. We purchased an apple chicken sandwich and bbq pork sandwich.... More

I visited Abel's Acres twice since spending a lot of time in Apple Hill. It is great, easy access to get to, good parking and has a wonderful bakery! I would highly recommend Abel's Acres during one of your stops and visit to the great Apple Hill area! Enjoy!
