I am not a "line waiter"; even on a First Friday BUT Cheesecakes By Alex is an exception! The variety of desserts (not just cheesecakes) is mind blowing. The Coconut Cream Cake is even better than any I've made or had in friends homes. My mother never baked a Coconut Cake so no comparison. Yes , the line will be... More

Stopped in for a piece of Kahlua Espresso cheesecake. So smooth and lightly flavored. Washed any remaining memory of Jello No Bake cheesecake right out of my mouth. :)

This is the perfect place for dessert. I recently went with two friends at sunset and we each got a different cheesecake. We watched the full moon over downtown while we had Choc Chip Cheesecake, Peanut Butter Cup cheesecake and carrot cake. Excellente!!

The cheesecakes are so tasty! I called in a couple of cakes for some out of town visitors and picked them up. Speedy, friendly service. And a gluten free option too!

After hearing this outstanding bakery began making hard rolls for sale that I grew up with, I eagerly went down on a Saturday morning to purchase these hard to find rolls. Upon entering and encountering young man behind the counter with the why are you bothering me attitude, I asked for the hard rolls. He looked at me with this... More

This is a local favorite! When folks that live in Greensboro want a sweet treat, this is where we go! They have the best cookies, cakes and brownies in downtown Greensboro!

This is a great Greensboro favorite! Really can't say enough about it. Great place to sit down with friends and family for a sweet treat and cup of coffee. Take a stroll downtown while you are there and get a slice to go!

Cheesecakes by Alex has never disappointed me when it comes to their cheesecakes! I am a cheesecake foodie. But if you don't like cheesecake, they have a little something for everybody. In the last couple of years, they expanded so customers can sit down and enjoy their treats. The cookies are good and the bars too!
