Better than any cheesecakes we have ever had in Australia or Europe! These are to die for and rightly described as the benchmark for New York cheesecakes. This was definitely worth the walk to get there - so much so that after we ate the cherry and salted caramel in the store we bought a blueberry and a red velvet... More

I wanted to try this cheesecake since tripadvisor and many others said how amazing it is. The cheesecake was good but definitely not among the better cheesecakes I have had and can't hold a candle to Junior's. Go there if you only have time for one!

Such a small shop but the cheesecake is beautiful, we went and there was only one other person in there we were expecting a huge queue. The cheesecake is the best I've ever had, the New York cheesecake was nicer than the chocolate, but it's so light and fluffy, I'd defiantly go back here if we went again!

Yes, the cheesecake really is as good as the reviewers claim. By far the best cheesecake I've ever had!

I was visiting New York, and my friend from home who lived in the city recommended me to try out this place. I am very glad she did! It was the best cheesecake I have ever had. I tried a bunch of different ones, it is my favorite dessert, but after my experience at Eileen's I am going to be... More

My girlfriend loves cheesecake. So do I. So, when in New York, you gotta have it. Anyway, this place pops up in Yelp as pretty much the highest rated cheesecake place in Manhattan. Note that they don't sell slices here, just mini cheesecake tarts. My girlfriend ordered the strawberry cheesecake (plain cheesecake with a glazed strawberry on top), and I... More

if you have had Eileen's cheesecake....than no other cheesecake can impress you...I still miss it and if I travel to new york city again...one of the reasons would be to have cheesecake at Eileen's. No one can eat just one.....

Surprising to find great cheesecake in a tiny store. Small space, just a few tables to sit and enjoy your dessert! We ordered the salted caramel cheesecake-delicious! We also decided to try the cannoli- Pretty decent, but it looks like cheesecake is their specialty. The cheesecake tarts are small, but just enough to share if you just want a taste... More

My fiancè being from Brooklyn loves Junior's. I'm not much of a cheesecake person but I tend to share one from Cheesecake Factory. We both wanted to see if Eileen's would come close to either one. She didn't disappoint! The small cheesecake tarts were pricey (around $3.50) but decadent esp the chocolate turtle one (only could eat a couple of... More

This is the best NY cheesecake! I don't know what all the fuss is about Juniors' cheesecake, Eileen's cheesecake is a million times better both in flavor and texture. The staff is friendly (I think I met Eileen personally)
