This is the best place ever. I never even liked cheesecake until I tried it here. They always have different unique flavors. Easy to get to in the heart if Albany right off Lark Street one of the few places that don't have meter parking. It's a small place with just one table but the friendliest people ever and you get free coffee..tea or
hot cocoa with each order which is a nice bonus. They post the flavors on their Facebook page daily. I haven't had anything there I haven't loved.

I'm a cheesecake snob, I only like REAL New York style cheesecake and though they don't advertise as New York style, it's pretty accurate to it!!! Their flavors are amazing, no bad choices here!! A must if you're in the area, but go early because they sell out quick (because they're awesome!) :D

This small little shop is open only a few days a week and only until they sell out. So even if the hours say until 8pm -I think they are rarely actually open until then. Each day they make about a dozen cheesecakes but your best chance is to get there within the first three hours in order to get any.

One piece of cheesecake comes with a complimentary beverage (i.e. coffee, hot cocoa, tea) and costs about $6 each.

We tried the Bavarian Cream and blueberry... both had great consistency and flavor. Looking forward to trying more flavors.

Stopped in our trip upstate at recommendation of daughter and son in law. They make about a dozen variety of cheesecakes each day and stay open until they sell out. They sell whole cakes, as well as "cakes" comprised of a number of different cheese cakes.

You can also do what we did and order slices with complimentary coffee or tea ($5) and eat it there. Space is limited for that however.

Definitely worth the trip!
