A wonderful restaurant for a relaxing lunch with friends. The food, especially the chicken salad, and desserts like Mrs. Ledbetter's pie are "to die for!" You will see everyone from office workers to people riding along the bike trails enjoying their lunch break.

Great food and lots of it! Fun lunch time atomsophere. Service was a little slow but that was because it was crowded. Saturdays are almost impossible to get in but worth the wait

Tasty stop off on the way through town. The raspberry rhubarb pie is wonderful. We also enjoyed a nice lunch with soup (average to good) and sandwiches (same). Service was friendly and the atmosphere is pure country with handmade quilts on display and for sale.

Food was average, as was service. Everything was very mediocre. Perhaps it was what I had ordered or something because I have always heard good things. I'm willing to try it again.

Gracious service of delicious food. Mostly lunch items.The setting is a blast to the past. Original shop overlooking Mississippi River. If the walls could talk. I'll bet Abe ate here while he was in town.

Very good desserts. Quaint atmosphere. Service is prompt and employees are attentive and very cordial. Prices a bit high...but probably worth it. All in all a great place to take family or guests.

When eating at My Just Desserts, you might want to order pie at the time you order your lunch. It's happened to me (more than once) that what I hoped for was erased from the chalkboard before I had the chance to order. No matter...More
