I am a cheesecake fan and this place is heaven!! So many great varieties. A mix of flavors you wouldn't traditionally pair together but it creates greatness! I went for the 1st time with my husband and we will return again.

$5 a slice, and your choice of a free hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Price does not change if you decided not to take the free drink. Well worth the price, hope you enjoy! :)
