“No trip to NYC is completed w/out Eileen's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I love the history and ethos here: passion for good cheesecake. More importantly, the cheesecake is out of this world! The little personal sized cakes are great for a wuick bite. They are also good to give people as gifts. I feel like I am transported in time when I go there. I always make a point of going to Eileen's whenever I am in the city- the journey from midtown is worth it and Spring St subway station is conveniently located nearby.

“Lightest cheesecake ever!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

This cheesecake literally melts in your mouth. There are many different varieties to choose from, but the plain NY style is my absolute favorite. The cafe is tiny, and so you can always take it to go. I would definitely go back!

“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.
