If you love cheesecake and I mean super delicious cheesecake then you have got to have some from here. So many wonderful choices but my favorite is the plain - original cheesecake with fresh raspberries. It is absolutely heavenly.

Fun and delicious and loved I could take home lunch for friends and a sweet treat. I did not dislike anything about the place. It is unique.

We were actually just strolling in the area, coming from a small shopping tour in the village. The sign of Underground Cheesecake caught my eye and we went to explore. Not knowing what to expect, we were very pleasantly surprised. The cakes are fabulous! The lady behind the counter was very knowledgeable and suggested just the right items to fit... More

When we first found this place a couple of years ago the cheesecake was absolutely amazing but I've found our last couple of visits, (spaced at least 6 months apart) have been very disappointing. My cheesecake had a skin on it like it had been sitting in the case for a long time. It was nowhere near as creamy as... More

we went one night but couldn't find the place-luckily we didn't because it would've been closed anyway. this place could make more money if it was somewhere like the downtown area where people are always walking by or looking for dessert after their meal in one of the wonderful restaurants. luckily we gave it another try the next day and...

If you love cheesecake or anything sweet then make sure you stop here! We were exploring the Commons and found this place nestled in the back. Cool location. Very small inside, but enough space for what they need I'm sure. Luckily it had stopped raining while we visited so we ate our pumpkin cheesecake outside at one of the their... More

If anyone wants delicious cheesecake, this is the place. I don't go as often because of their move to the Commons, although the parking is very convenient in their most recent location. They also have frozen soups which are great to keep frozen and serve to unexpected company.

A little out of the way but worth finding. We were told that they make about 50 kinds of cheesecake so the variety changes daily. We went there twice and tried four different kinds. They are a little pricey for a single piece but we were not disappointed in the taste. Will try the sandwiches on our next visit.

Best grilled cheese ever! My favorite is the butternut squash gilled cheese, my partner and I grabbed a couple sandwiches and hit the trails south of The Commons for a picnic. It's a little expensive but totally worth it. I haven't had any dessert items there... yet. Will have to try that next time.
