W had spent the day in the Anza Borego Desert looking at all of the Cactus Flowers In Full Bloom. Coming home we arrived in Julian at dinner time. Desperate for their famous apple pie. There was Moms on the Main Street still open! They closed at 6:30 pm it said on the door.......but at 7:00 pm the line was... More

The price of a fruit pie has gone up and the portion size for just a piece has gotten smaller. Also, long lines just to get in to discover the above fact.

Dear 459lhk, I am sorry that your visit to our store did not meet your expectations. Since we opened our doors in 1989, we have sold one-sixth of a pie as a slice. We have special slicers to assist us in attempting to provide each customer with the same amount of pie, but I am sorry that you felt that... More

Well done pies with loads of fruit. We got an apple cherry crisp and an apple flake - both yummy. The line was a wee bit long but moved fast. You can do take out or eat in.

I've purchased pies from Mom's many times but this was my first overnight visit to Julian. Instead of standing in a long line of eager pie lovers, I was the only person on the street at 7 AM and I think I was the first customer. I always buy the Apple Crumb but my wish is someday to buy one... More

We ordered 1 piece of apple berry crumble pie. It was served so hot it burnt my mouth. The cashier never asked if we want it hot or cold. It was delicious after a few minutes of cooling off!

Last weekend, as my wife and I prepared to head home, we had to stop at Mom's on main street for our pies. I always get-up early to walk main street while it's still quite. And I always stop at Mom's to look in the front window and watch the bakers, prepare their pies. This time we bought an Apple... More

The Apple Dumplings are delicious, tender crust and caramelized apples. They also have a nice assortment of pie.including chicken pot pie. You can get a cup of ice cream too. Counter service is very slow, but don't leave, it's worth the wait.

We make the trip to Julian every couple of months just to have pie at Mom's and to bring one home to my folks. Several kinds to choose from including a no sugar added apple. The apple dumpling are also fantastic! Sandwiches are good and so are their other treats. Worth the trip to Julian.

We took an apple pie to a family gathering. I was determined to not be impressed because I consider my apple pie the best but was I ever shone up! everyone raved about the crust. No one ever raved about my crust!
