“Best cheesecake I've ever had”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

Title says it all. Best cheesecake I've ever had. I like baking cheesecakes myself and always love trying new places for cheesecakes. Two Little Red Hens have created a perfect receipt. I was lucky enough to stay within few blocks when visiting New York, so after my first visit I had to go back several times. Their cupcakes are very good too. Also a big plus for opening hours!
One slice of cheesecake was $5, and although it sounds a bit high, the slice is nice and thick.

“Great cheesecake”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2013

Their cheesecake is wonderful, great taste and great texture, not too airy not too compact. It's probably the best cheesecake I've ever had. The price — $5 for a plain slice if I remember correctly — might seem expensive but the quality is worth it.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2013

Don't miss it, make it a pit stop for when you are tired and have a coffee and dessert! I had the chocolate pie - to die for! A cookie to go was wonderful later too! The atmosphere is fun and casual!
