Beautiful scenery. Great Antique stores as well as junk Joe shops like Steves antiques. Be ready to rummage through the ruble!

Good food and good service! If you are looking for a "tearoom" atmosphere and enjoy soup, sandwich, salads and dessert, this is the place to go!

A great place to treat yourself to something special. I loved the tomato bisque soup and the almond cherry pie. Friendly service and charming atmosphere.

Although their name is “my just desserts”and their desserts are amazing, they have a really good lunch menus. Their soups are delish and sell out fast, I also really like the chicken salD sandwich, but a SAVE ROOM FOR DESSERT!

The menu is limited but tasty. The desserts are outrageous and worth the stop. The place overlooks the big Mississippi. Sit toward the back for the view.

We have enjoyed the lunches here for years. When we visit Alton a trip to My Just Desserts is always on the schedule. The pies are epic, delicious, and responsible for several of my overweight pounds. Highly recommend everyone visit and indulge in the experience.

The food is good, but the place is really small. We ended up at a table just outside the kitchen. The desserts are plentiful and taste good.

While I had a good meal here, I felt let down given how highly recommended it was. I guess I was just expecting something different. I was hoping to see bakery/dessert items on display but they weren't. I can see why some people love it...More

Every now and then I crave the delicious chicken salad sandwhiches, chips and cookie-brownies that My Just Desserts are known for. Everything on their menu, lunch and desserts are so good. Get here early if you want to eat here as they dont take reservations...More
