I think that the title of my review says it all. The only problem with Cheesecake's by Alex (in addition to the calories consumed) is the huge selection of goodies...there is just too much to narrow it down, so I always buy multiple items. If I had to narrow it down, it would be the Peanut Butter and Chocolate Cheesecake.... More

Being somewhat of a cheesecake fanatic, I tend to be fairly critical of those who claim to make a superior cheesecake. Cheesecakes By Alex has never and I repeat, never let me down. I have been buying from them exclusively for over 16 years. It's so hard to find a business these days that is both reliable and also appreciative... More

Cute coffee shop, cheesecake and other treats. We were in town 3 days and ended up there twice! Coffee is excellent and muffins and all cheesecakes were delicious!

What a great place for a change of venue after dinner downtown...with an incredible choice of delicious desserts and REAL coffee! With their new expansion, there is plenty of seating inside and out! A great date place.. Sweets for the sweet! Best cheesecake and carrot cake. Grab your best guy or gal and head downtown!!!

Dozens of options of cheesecake and other desserts too (brownies, cookies, etc). Cheesecake was melt in your mouth good. The bananas foster was fantastic and didn't have that "artificial banana" taste that some banana flavored desserts have. There is indoor seating and a nice patio outside. There is also off-street parking which is great. Gluten free options were available as... More

The cheesecake is good, a bit sweet for "New York" cheesecake BUT in my opinion-- forget the cheese cake because the Cannolis are the best! Wow, fresh and delicious w great texture. This is my favorite feom here. My boyfriend likes the carrot cake and the red velvet cream pie for the ride home! My second favorite is the blueberry... More

Everything here is exceptional, including the food, service, and setting! Grab a friend, coffee, and cheesecake and sit outside on their patio for an evening to remember!

Amazing varieties of cheesecakes that will blow you away. Park in various parking garages if you cannot find parking outside. Small but has inside and outside areas. Nice to walk downtown and then end here for a treat.

Saw a great review so a couple of us headed out to try it ourselves. YUMMY!!!! It was hard to pick just one haha After finally settling on one, we went out to the outside dining area. Despite it being mid-July in NC and very hot, we were surprisingly comfortable. It was a perfect ending to a long day of... More
