Moms Pies: My Favorite Pie Shop in Julian

Moms Pies Julian California

One of my favorite fall weekend things to do in SoCal is to drive from San Diego an hour east into the start of the mountains and visit the little town of Julian. This small town is know for its exquisite apple pie and apple cider and pretty much anything else apple-related. There are many pie shops lining the short main street of Julian. All of the pie places in Julian are delicious, but my favorite is Moms.

It may seem like a lot of pie, but the line for Moms on weekends always winds out the door and down the street with exciting patrons ready to dig into the flavorful apple pies that Moms sells – including cherry-apple, boysenberry-apple, and apple-caramel-crumb.

Tom tired of waiting in line at Moms - but it was oh so worth it in the end as they weren't out of his beloved apple-cherry pie.

You mean an hour EAST from San Diego, right? ;) I think if you went an hour west from San Diego you’d be somewhere in the Pacific.

I am really embarrassed to say that as a San Diego native I have never been there! I’ve had the pies, but I really gotta make an attempt to drive up there.

Haha, yes, an hour west would take you somewhere into the ocean! :) I’ve corrected. Thanks for catching! It must have been the Minnesotan still in me thinking the mountains of Cali are to the West. ;) Hope you make it to Julian someday! It’s such a cute little town.
