Cheescake made from heaven

Having Eileen's cheesecake was literally like eating a slice of heaven. Thank you for the special delivery all the way to the island of Aruba. It was so good that I did not want to share the cake with anybody. Will be visiting NY soon so will be dropping by for sure.

Just north of Chinatown sits this little cheesecake store. I didn't get to go inside because I was sitting in the car with the flashers on, but my boyfriend ran in and got us two of these cute little cheesecakes. I had cookies n cream and he had plain cheesecake with cherries on top. They were fantastic. They weren't outrageously... More

This is a small pastry shop with the most variety of topping options for your cheesecake (muffin size) break. You will get confused with such list, and you will select 2 or 3 for your short list. Hope you are no alone to try several, they have couple of table that you can useg. They also have the full pie... More

There probably will never be a definitive winner in the "New York's Best Cheesecake" category, but Eileen's has the strongest grip on the title. It certainly is home to "New York's Most Famous Cheesecake," as the plethora of clippings and photos proudly displayed on the wall attest to. I recently visited Eileen's for a post-dinner treat and was very pleased... More

I'm not normally a cheesecake fan, but when in NYC we agreed to try Eileen's. First the good news. The cheesecakes were excellent. Very light. Not the stodgy fare you're more likely to get in Europe. We tried the Classic, Blueberry and Salted Caramel. They were all very good, essentially the same base with different toppings. As has been noted... More

Very large selection, good quality and freshly made. I don't think it is the best cheesecake ever but it is actually very good.

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.
