Cheesecake's by Alex is a fantastic local dessert restaurant with a charm unique to Greensboro. The staff is pleasant, though not overly friendly. The dining area is small, but the outdoor patio is lovely in the summertime. We had a fun time sitting outside watching the Greensboro nightlife on a Friday night. It can get pretty full during the summer time, and I have found myself perched on a retaining wall when no tables are available.
I can highly recommend just about any slice of cheesecake. I have personally tried the Simply Chocolate, Chocolate Swirl, Chocolate Chip, Bananas Foster, Strawberry, Apple Crisp, and Espresso. All of them were fantastic and rivaled a certain big well-known cheesecake factory... I mean restaurant. In addition, the Brevaian cream filled cupcakes is tasty, as well as the cannoli. I don't recommend the velvet cakes, but that's just my personal preference.
Any time someone is looking for a dessert place, I highly recommend Cheesecake's by Alex. It's worth it.
