Prospect Heights has an inviting new sweet spot in Joyce Bakeshop. Scones, muffins, macarons, pain au chocolate, and Russian tea cookies all win praise. Fans also appreciate the well-brewed coffee and well-mannered staff. “Cozy, busy, yummy, and baby friendly,” reports colette_ingrid, who’s fallen for the plum and blueberry cobbler with cornbread crumb topping.
Joyce has its skeptics. “Decent, not extraordinary,” concludes chocokitty, who faults dry scones and thickish macarons.
