Best cheesecakes, pastries, bagels and coffee in town!

An icon of downtown Greensboro, this little gem on Elm St has lots of parking an great cakes, pastries, bagels and coffee. They've got all the old school equipment, and their best kept secret is their coffee cake. As for it when they're fresh out of the oven!

High quality sweets. Not just cheesecakes but other desserts and coffee, too. Reasonable prices and comfortable seating in the heart of downtown Greensboro.

I can't believe the last review before mine. Obviously the person has never been in small business trying to make a profit! We had two examples of cheesecake on two occasions while at the ACC tournament. The portions were perfect and prices fair for such labor intensive products. Thanks for the experience! Coffee was excellent too! Downtown High Point is... More

The only reason I stopped by was due to the online reviews, but after visiting and tasting the cheesecake, I am convinced that the only reason this place has thrived is due to lack of local competition. WAY overpriced, small portions, and all around average at best. Will most likely never return Go to your local cheesecake factory.

I was amazed with the variety of cheesecakes they had to offer. There were so many choices ranging from white choc raspberry to apple pie. The taste of the cheesecake was fresh and homemade. It was delicious and I can't wait to go back in the near future. They also offer other desserts such as muffins, cakes Danishes and brownies.... More

I took my wife here after a nice brunch at Lucky 32 and a visit to an art gallery. Parking was crowded but we were pleased to find spaces for customers located in a lot right next to the restaurant. The place is small when you first walk in but you are greeted by several varieties of cheesecakes along with... More

We stopped in last weekend for takeout Cheesecake after a fine dining experience in Downtown Greensboro...he had the cookies n cream and I had the Expresso cheesecakes...they were each fabulous. Prices were fair. Décor was unassuming...clean and fresh. The cheesecakes....well, let's just say that I've dreamed of another slice since we left Greensboro and can't wait to make it back... More

Unassuming in set up, this place offers great desserts and excellent coffee. Located in the heart of the downtown greensboro, this shop offers parking for its customers. The main shop is tiny, but the adjoining room is spacious plus there is an outside are.

We went out of our way to stop in for some cheesecake last week, even took a couple of pieces home for later. We've been here several times over the past couple of years and have never been disappointed. This cheesecake is amazing!
