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.

We have seen the place at TV, and marked it as one of our food spots in NYC, and the visit is really worth, those were the best cheesecakes we have eaten!!

Very good cheesecake! They don't offer slices of the whole cake, so you have to buy the mini ones for just a couple. These were really good. Reasonably priced. Wish they had better hours and were open at night!

My friends and I went together here and were pleasantly surprised. I had a raspberry topped cheesecake and found it perfectly fluffy, sweet (but not too sweet), and with a generous crust. My friend's cappuccino cake was very flavourful. Easily one of the best, if not the best, cheesecake I ever had.

Wife surprised me (and my co-workers) with a Maker's Mark cheesecake from Eileen's and needless to say, several diets were destroyed. All that you love from an excellent cheesecake with a bourbon flavor profile bonus.

Just visited NYC and researched the best cheesecake spots. Only had a chance to sample one shop, Eileen's. simply the best I've ever had . Light and fluffy and not too sweet with wonderful flavors . We had dulce de leche, cherry, and banana chocolate . All three were delectable . A must !

Excellent, as you would expect having read the reviews. We had a mango version which was mildly dry but all the same very pleasant and an awesome salted caramel which was as fresh as could be, not heavy and delicious. The server knew her stuff from A to Z.

I love, love, love the individual cheesecakes Eileen's sells. They are the perfect snack. Tons of flavors, but I have to say that the "Salted Caramel" is amazing. If you like creme brûlée (sp?), you will flip over this one. The kids loved Oreo Cheesecake and my wife loved the cappuccino (and my salted caramel). It's a tiny little bakery,... More
