Julian Pie Company

Merely walking in to this big modern building is an olfactory joy – the air is thick with the aroma of cooked apples, cinnamon, and hot crust.

Varieties of apple pie in the Julian repertoire include Dutch apple with a crumb top, boysenberry apple crumb, natural strawberry apple, and apple rhubarb. Also on the regular menu are peach, peach melba, blackberry, and pecan. Basic apple pie with a pastry top is the classic, and we can’t think of a better pie anywhere. Its crust is flaky, and the insides powerfully fruity/sweet.

While not a full-service restaurant by any means, this bakery does have a few other excellent food items worth knowing about. One unusual snack is is pie crust cookies, which are just what they sound like: cookies made from pie crust, sprinkled with cinnamon. The other handsome things in the glass display cases are donuts. They are plump cider donuts enrobed in either cinnamon sugar, chocolate, or supersweet (and super-good!) maple frosting.
