I went, i ate, i wondered

I wondered why some places can make divine cheesecakes and others can't. I wondered why most restaurants serve cheesecakes that taste like lard, and this tiny place in New York can do it the way it should be done? Light, creamy, with perfect cheese/biscuit ratio. A must try, as it will open your... read more

We heard about this place before we visited New York and went out of our way to find it. As with a lot of places that serve excellent food in NY, this was is tiny! They were queuing outside but the wait was short. The NY cheesecake was truly delicious. Well worth hunting out and visiting.

We went out of our way to find this place as we wanted to try some authentic NY cheesecake and the reviews were so good. The cheesecakes are very small, as mentioned in previous reviews. I opted for the chocolate cappuccino which was ok but definitely didn't taste of coffee and was a little bland. My husband had the plain... More

Best cheesecake in New York. Light and creamy and comes in an amazing assortment of favors. It was offered at Stuyvesant's College Night and what a way to present the best of New York to over 175 college representatives from all over the country. Every time I have one, it reminds me why this is the only place to go... More

We had salted caramel and strawberry cheesecakes. Both excellent. Creamy and light, just what you want from a cheesecake.

I was staying at a nearby hotel, and really wanted some dessert. I had no car, so it had to be withing walking distance. Eileen's popped up on a search, and cheesecake sounded good. The shop was tiny and bustling, even 20 minutes before closing time on a Tuesday night. I bought two mini cheesecakes, and they were delicious!!! I... More

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.

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.
