The cheesecakes here are awesome. The come as small individual mini cheesecakes which are lovely. The place is small and the location is not in the best place, but I would definitely recommend it if visiting New York.

We love cheesecake so this place was on our bucket list. The cheesecakes are delicious and come in cute tart shapes. Perfect for sharing or not! Recommended flavors: strawberry and salted caramel (the chocolate cheesecake wasn't great).

Needless to further explain... the cheesecake over there is just the best ever. It is not that thick and full bodied NY style cheesecake, but it is just sensational... hard to explain. the plain cheesecake is great, the one with chocolate is awesome... Must try them ALL!!!!

We wanted a genuine New York cheese cake experience and were not disappointed. The selection was fantastic and the taste was amazing! Even my brother and dad who are not cake eaters thoroughly enjoyed their cheesecake! A real must when in the city!

I have to say, I've been to Eileens over a dozen times, but what really made me happy was their ability to work with my special birthday order. We ordered a large cheesecake with mini cheesecakes surrounding it. As always- tasted amazing. What really put the cherry on top and made me want to write this review was the bakers... More

My boyfriend emailed Eileen's to get me a birthday cheese cake made as a surprise. They emailed back within 24 hours and insisted that they didn't want a deposit. It's the best cheesecake I've ever eaten! Lemon flavour! It was to die for!! If you like cheese cake this is your heaven!

Staying in Nolita

Neighborhood Profile
Nolita
Despite being just off of busy Houston Street, Nolita maintains a low-key vibe that makes it a pleasant retreat in the heart of lower Manhattan. Short for “North of Little Italy,” Nolita was once considered to be part of Little Italy. Today, the neighborhood is popular with young fashionistas popping in and out of the chic independent boutiques that line Mulberry, Mott and Elizabeth Streets. In addition to shopping, there are cozy restaurants and sidewalk cafes serving everything from new-school Italian food to the world-famous cronuts. While small in size (Nolita stretches just a few blocks in each direction), it’s a great neighborhood to spend an afternoon people watching, window-shopping, and grabbing a bite to eat.
