“Best Cheesecake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014 via mobile

Based on this site, we checked out Eileen's. It was fabulous! She has 39 different flavors, even sugar free and gluten free.
Just call ahead if you have allergies, so they can take specialty cheesecake from the freezer and you can enjoy with your friends!

“Worth the travel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Wow!!!!! This place is worth the travel from midtown. The cheesecake in any flavor is to die for. I purchased both a salted Carmel and a raspberry. If you make it out this way you will love them. A must stop and taste place I you are visiting NYC.

“Delicious”

This place has some of the best cheesecake I have ever had. Make sure you stop in and get some at this establishment. The Carmel cheesecake was outstanding.

“Light and fluffy. Yummy!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2014

My husband and I dropped in for cheesecake in the late afternoon, after enjoying a tour of the SoHo area. When we heard that Eileen's Special Cheesecake was Frank Sinatra's favourite... well we just had to try it out. We were not disappointed. The small, circular cakes were light and delicious. Apparently the New York style cheesecake always has that type of crumb crust both on the base and around the cake. We would definitely go there again.

“Pumpkin cheesecake year round!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Searched for this bakery solely in hopes of getting pumpkin cheesecake (my absolute favorite) in June (a virtual impossibility). I was not disappointed!!! The cheesecake had a very creamy texture & crumbly crust. I also enjoyed the individually sized portions, slightly more than 1/2 a slice for $3.50, making it competitively priced for NYC.
