I stopped in over a month ago to inquire about having my wedding catered. The person working there at the time seemed very flustered at my inquiry and told me to come back when her manager was around. I'm not from the area so I asked her to take my information and she told me she'd have someone contact me... More

My wife and I said we were going to buy 2 slices of cheesecake for dinner later that night, but we ended up eating it in the parking lot before we even left. They were that good!

Peanut butter cheesecake is so good. Definitely worth the stop. Crazy unique location in the campus of the old mental hospital. Will be back again.

We went into this shop after lunch. They cheesecakes looked so good in the cases. We were staying in a hotel, so we just bought the box of 6 different bite size cheesecakes. They were very good, We also bought a cookie to eat there. I would stop again if I was here,

Pieces are very small compared to compared to Cheesecake Factory and only have about 15 flavors by the slice not all 40. We got a 4 in personal cake with raspberries on top. It was overpriced at almost $9 and tasted overlooked and dry. The icing on the top tasted like stale over sugared cake icing not sweet moist whipped... More

We live here and locally patronize this amazing hidden gem in the TC crown. The cheesecakes (all of 25+ kinds) are amazing. I have worked through many flavors and love them all. We particularly love their chocolate silk pie or key lime cheesecake as well. I have never had a bad dessert here...highly recommend this place. Love that it is... More

my husband and I grabbed a few brownies one night from them before they closed, they'd do well to keep the same hours as the restaurants in the same area. Wine and dessert go well together!
