Words cannot describe how delicious the cheesecakes here are!! I tried the mini coconut cheesecake (it was to die for!), and my husband tried the Oreo one (also very delicious). We looked at each other after polishing them off so quickly and decided we should...More

We tried the small cheesecakes - the flavors we tried were mango, coconut, plain, chocolate and marble. They were all delicious.

After a delectable meal across the street at Osteria Morini, it was time to top off the day with a dessert at Eileen's Special Cheesecake. It's a small spot, so finding a table and getting in and out can sometimes be a little cramped. Not...More

We have never had cheesecake like the one we got at Eileen's. It was light, fluffy, not too sweet, just perfect for my taste. We almost didn't go because it was 90 degree that day, fortunately we eventually went and they did not disappoint. Staff...More

The cheesecake was perfectly rich and smooth. We ordered three kinds: salted caramel (looks and tastes more like a creme brulee), blueberry and strawberry. Gone within seconds!

Went to this bakery to taste the famous cheesecakes and tried two different types and both were delicious. This is a place any traveller should not miss when visit the lower Manhattan.

Don't miss this spot if you are fan of cheesecake. Under $5 gets you a personal cheesecake which will melt in your mouth. The salted caramel is my favorite but all flavors lead to pure bliss for your taste buds here!

Great cheesecake, worth the wait. The wait can be long and lengthy though. Still cake felt really good.

We tried the chocolate bourbon and the amoretto cheesecakes. They were equally delicious! So light and airy with great, rich flavor and yummy crust on both. Glad we found this little gem. Service was great as well.

Came here for a treat after walking for hours in the city. Wonderful treat. We had the pineapple, amaretto and coconut individual cheesecakes and they were all brilliant. Very light and fluffy. Great flavours. Would definitely recommend

Once the artistic hub of New York, SoHo is now one of
the premiere shopping destinations in the world.
Housing everything from the most popular luxury brands
to swank boutiques you won’t find anywhere else, this
is a sophisticated shopper’s dream come true. Broadway

main drags to explore. Take a detour down the quieter

Funny how the Q&A invite-to-answer system works. I got the sugar free one but not this. The answer here is much simpler: Yes. But melumar already told you that. ;)

I stand to be corrected but I don't think they do on their regular menu. I have very little doubt they'd make you one, though, as a special order. Either way, if you don't get a clear answer here (and even if you do), I'd... More

Eileen's Special Cheesecake opened for business in December, 1975, and arrived in lower Manhattan on December 4, 1976. It was a "ghost town" when I first arrived, but that didn't bother me because the rent was low and I desperately needed a place to bake for my growing wholesale business. I hadn't considered the retail aspects of the business until people started knocking on the door of the bakery wanting to buy cheesecake. With that encouragement, I purchased a bakery case and began to conduct retail business. Soon after our cheesecake attracted the press and we were listed in "Best Bites" in New York Magazine. Radio station WOR rated us "Number One Cheesecake" and we appeared on television quite often whipping up batters of cheesecake. Time passed, and now Cleveland Place is in a popular area where the mix of people and restaurants and shops are so unique. Downtown is becoming the "place to be", and we are actually on most maps now. We survived difficult times, and now "let the good times roll"!
