This is not just an apple pie restaurant, we bought a frozen chicken pot pie to take home (along with our apple pie ;-) We asked the San Diego Motorcycle patrol where the best spot for apple pie was....and without hesitation they guided us to Mom's. Another well known apple pie spot is Apple Alley Pies.

Pie was well worth the 10 minute wait. Made before your eyes, how could I resist? $4.25 a slice or $16.95 whole. Smells so good, might want to take one home.

Greatest pies if you don't mind the line; We ended up picking up ours at 7:00am for Thanksgiving, and there were already several diners inside.

All home made pies, whipped cream and cinnamon ice cream! If you travel to Julian it is a must to try the pie and why not go to Mom's! Had a slice of the Pecan, Pumpkin, Apple and berry between all of us and they were all delicious.

You can't come to Julian and not eat pie and this is probably the best place to do it. I ended up sampling the pecan, peach, and the apple cherry and each one was amazing.

We tasted a pumpkin, apple and a pecan pies and our favorite was the pecan pie, so we bought two more to take home and share with our family. The other pies was delicious too, the line to order was long but advanced fast.

I'm a San Diego native, so have visited many times over the years, and having that piece of pie ala mode is a priority every time to complete the overall Julian experience. You can watch the pie-making through a big plate glass window, and see the pies on display before even going inside. It's right in the middle of Julian... More

Best pie I have ever tasted! Located on main street. Has a variety of pies including chicken pot pie, apple, strawberry-rhubarb and many varieties of berry pie. Baked right on the premises. Small area for dining. Casual.

Great place to stop in for a piece of pie or to bring it home. You will not be disappointed, but you might have to stand in line for a bit to get a bite.
