We had the quiche and oatmeal bake for breakfast. Both were delicious and we liked the semi-self-service. The pie is described as huge! WE SHOULD HAVE HAD THE PIE--maybe next time😩

So many great pies, and really good homemade crusts. You can have with and without ice cream. Plus apple dumplings! Not a lot of seating, but you can take it with you in a little food boat. Try apple to begin with, then go to one of the berry ones. You won't be disappointed!

I love to pick up a fresh pie from Mom's. My choice is the apple/cherry flaky crust. Never fails. Usually we pick up to go, but, you can choose to eat at a table. You can get coffee and a nice seat. There are restrooms for guests.

When you enter this restaurant/Pie House don't be put off by the cafeteria style ordering. The pies and fantastic and the service great! Once you order they call your number and deliver your pie, so find a seat and sit back and wait to enjoy your pie! The atmosphere is one of fun and sharing as they have many long... More

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.

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!
