“Not recommended to eat the small portion...pamper yourself !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

Since Cheesecake is one of my favorites desserts, I decided to look for the best place to enjoy it at NYC. The place is small but big in options. I went with a friend and we ordered the one on the photo I posted (2-3 people). We chose the 4 flavors and our favorites were the strawberry and pineapple topping. We just left nothing and for 2 was perfect if you are sweet starving. Besides this one they offer the individual and a 10-12 slices size. I remember also creme brulee, banana, tiramisu and plain cheesecake are among their options. The location is close to Little Italy and Soho. A must in Manhattan.

“Delicious cheesecake!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2013

I am a bit of a cheesecake fan. I love it and these are delicious. They are creamy and the sizes are great. It's a perfect "sugar high" after a day of shopping! It's a tiny little shop and you can't really sit there. Also, try Juniors, I love their cheesecake too.

“Very good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

Cheesecakes were delicious and worth a try! They have various cheesecake sizes which is nice. I would say variety is on the lesser side but very good nevertheless for its value! Not much room for sitting though.

“Other great Cheesecakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Came here with my family because my father saw the rating online about being the best cheesecake. I thought it was ok. I have had better. I think when it comes to NY cheesecake, Juniors is much better. But that is my opinion. If you arent sure which cheesecake to try, the best thing to do is a test of both and see which one you like better.

It is also a very small shop. Not a lot of seats available to eat there.
