Right now, My Just Desserts is open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday and the brunch this Sunday will be from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Evelyn said My Just Desserts will be open after this Sunday 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., except when they have brunch. She said they will announce the dates of their brunch in the future.

Evelyn said the brunch is $25 for all-you-can-eat patrons. Some of the delights that will be served are chicken and homemade waffles, made-from-scratch biscuits and gravy, apple walnut salad, varieties of Quiches, blueberry French toast bread pudding, homemade cinnamon rolls, and much more. She said she and the others affiliated with My Just Desserts are so “thankful and appreciative” to still be here in the community and “loved” by patrons.

“The employees are staying with me and were very valued by Yvonne,” she added. “The community has been very supportive of the restaurant while Yvonne had it and since we took over. We hope they enjoy the new Sunday Brunch.”
