Located in the historic district in downtown Alton, “My Just Desserts” is the embodiment of every kid’s dreams. For one, you will not be balked at for ordering dessert first or just dessert altogether. Second, the cozy atmosphere. Every kid lives for the homey and love-filled environment of grandma’s house- and that’s what Just Desserts feels like all the time.
Famous for their delicious pies, the cooking at MJD is the pinnacle of what makes Americana so special. Lead Baker, Yvonne, cooks love into every one of the 9-13 pies she crafts by hand every day. The only issues for kids and kids at heart? MJD also offers excellent entrées or “real food”. A must-try is the chicken salad, which is made fresh every single day. The staff cooks and debones nearly 100 chickens per week! Aside from the famous options, at My Just Desserts, the kitchen staff has over 150 recipes they use on an impromptu basis every month.
