We came minutes after closing. The lady was super nice and let us buy desserts anyways. That was super sweet of her! My friends got raspberry cheesecake and I got a French silk pie. They were delicious, but we felt a little overpriced especially considering the small portion sizes (especially compared to the Cheesecake Factory prices/portions). That's the only reason... More

Lunch was filling! There were unique flavors in the Turkey appleslaw sandwich and the minestrone soup. I didn't have enough "room" left over for the sweets - but they looked wonderful!

They make all their cheesecakes and other desserts from scratch and with local products. They have so many cheesecake flavors to choose from its hard to decide. We tried most of them a few years ago at a tasting for our wedding and it was amazing. Picking out the ones we did was really hard!

It really is too hard to decide which slice of cheesecake to get. I've gluttonously devoured each and every bite of everything I've tried there. You'd have to really love someone a lot to give up a bite! I'm thrilled to see they also carry gluten free items, which is especially nice since my sister has Celiac's and can't have... More

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.
