I opened the app to find a GF apple pie slice in Julian, without much hope...and found it! Staff is super knowledgeable, bake the gf pies in different ovens, and handle them in different part of kitchen from normal pies. And they are great! Also the same price of normal pies! No extra for GF! :)
i have Celiac and was really looking forward to eating the GF apple pie. However, after asking a few questions, it was obviously not safe to eat. They roll the dough on the same surface (after washing) and bake gluten containing pies at the same time in the same oven.
Finally, my kid with Celiac is able to have GF apple pie! It was absolutely delicious, you could not tell it was GF. So happy to have found this gem in Julian. We were too late to try their sandwiches, but it's good to know that there is a place we can eat at when we visit.
Thought that Julian's apple pies were a thing of the past now that you can't have gluten? I did too and am so glad that I was wrong! Amazing GF pies! I had the apple pie with ice cream. It was delicious and even though I am extremely sensitive to cross-contamination, I didn't get sick! The menu says that they also have GF bread for sandwiches, but I didn't try it so I can't review that.
They have GF apple crumb pie and boysenberry-apple crumb pie. Available by the slice or a whole pie. During our stay in Julian my friend and I got a whole boysenberry and it was amazing! The crumb topping was great. You'd never know it was GF. The staff is super friendly and helpful. Would recommend to anyone looking for a great GF dessert option in Julian.
This was my favorite pie place in Julian before having to go GF. When I went for a visit this fall I had not expected to find GF pie......I got very excited! I ordered a full pie, apple & blackberry. They are frozen due to how crumbly they are but they will warm just a slice if that's all you want. I took it home, let it thaw overnight in the fridge. The next morning I had a slice for bfast. It was on the crumbly side, & the topping could have been a tad sweeter Over all though the filling was delish, and it was very enjoyable! I will certainly go back for another GF pie before the season is over!!
