Underground, in a corner...

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.

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.
