Yes! Cheesecake on a stick! And it was delicious! Very creamy and flavorful! It was such a cool treat to have while outdoors admiring the Commons. I will definitely return on my next trip to TC.

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,
