Absolutely recommendable. Best cheesecake I ever had so far, well worth the trip. There is a good selection of varieties to choose from. Staff very friendly and nice atmosphere. Easy to get there, metro station is just a couple of blocks away.

I keep going for more!!! It;s a very very small bakery but has one of the best cheesecakes i've ever tried. My favorites are the classic strawberry one, and the dulce de leche one.

This little shop on corner of Kenmare street has a long history of serving great cheesecake. If you love cheesecake then a visit here is a must. You can also get the mini cheesecakes in all types of flavors.

Best cheesecake. Ever. It's the (food) thing I've missed the most about New York. I've never tasted a cheesecake so good. Perfection.

Made sure to find Eileen's Cheesecake after being recommended by a friend and reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Was not disappointed with the variety and the cheesecakes. The salted caramel and Oreo cakes were particularly good.

Had read the rave reviews about this place and how highly it was rated, we were determined to go there. Im glad we made the effort, its not difficult to find but maybe a little off the beaten track. My son and I both had a plain New York cheesecake and both agreed it was truly delicious. Not a lot... More

On visiting New York I wanted to try several things including cheesecake. I checked on TA and discovered Eileen's. I made a special effort to find it and am so glad I did. The cakes were delicious. They are not served by the slice but in miniature and there were about 10 different flavors to choose from on the morning... More

My wife and tried it based on the reviews. They were right, best I have ever had. I asked for the salted caramel and they were out. The counter girl said no problem and went to the back and made me one. Great customer service, eat one of you can, actually eat more than one, they're great.

Most amazing cheesecake ever, definitely worth the walk. I tried the original, salted caramel and red velvet and they were all amazing. Red velvet was my fav :). I'd love to go back and try all of the other flavours. My only complaint was the individual cakes a too small and a $4 a bit expensive.
