I only had 2 different flavors of the mini cheesecake on a stick, but those alone are worth the visit and the calories. Check it out if you have a sweet tooth (or sweet teeth).

We love their cheesecakes! Every time, we visited Seattle, we would get their cheesecakes. All of their flavors are so good and rich. We have practically tried every cheesecake they have. Everything is so good there. It is a bit pricy but really yummy.

If you're traveling through Pike Place Market in Seattle and suddenly have a craving for something sweet and delectable, visit The Confectional for an enchanting mini cheesecake to satisfy your craving. One is perfect, but they are so good, you might as well have two.

Me and my friends had cheese cake after dinner. The Confectional reminded me of many great little places in Paris. The cheese cake tastes awesome, I got one with peanut butter and chocolate. No too many people during the night so you could actually chat with your friends in this fantastic dessert place! Stop by here, this is one of... More

I loved this cheesecake.. The size is perfect. Big enough for more then a taste but small enough not to feel guilty. I got the raspberry cheescake. It was firm but not so dense that it felt heavy in your stomach. The taste was rich but not overly thick. Somewhere between a creamy and firm cheesecake consistancy. The crust did... More

I was expecting to get my mind blown, I guess, but it was just ok cheesecake. Lots of favors to choose from, but IMHO Cheesecake Factory cheesecake is way better.

So glad I had a.chance to try the cheesecake here. I was first attracted to their sign - "confess your love for cheesecake." While I was walking around the Market, I resisted. But after dinner one evening on Broadway, it was time. I had a Mexican cheesecake, which uses cinnamon in the chocolate and has a kick of cayenne to... More

We found this place as part of a chocolate tour. They make hot chocolate with cinnamon and cloves; in the summer, they freeze them into little popsicles. Very sweet, but very good!

The Confectional has the most unique chocolate taste treat I've ever had. I sought out this place again after experiencing it last year. For most people the cheesecake flavors are going to be the draw but when you're there you absolutely MUST try their drinking chocolate! For $.075 you get a shot sized portion of an amazingly tasty, smooth and... More
