Eileen’s Special Cheesecake is a family run bakery that sells mainly cheesecakes with a few other pastries. The place is a really small place that has 2 or 3 tables in it and there is a display case showcasing their cheesecakes.
I’ve been coming here for years, but some reason I never wrote it up. It’s a really great place and definitely my favorite cheesecake in the City. I’m not a cheesecake expert, but I really like cheesecake and I think this might be one of the best versions I’ve ever had. I’m not sure why you don’t hear about this place more often.
The cheesecake is so good. It’s not really dense like some cheesecakes and not overly sour or sweet like some cheesecakes. It’s actually very light for cheesecake and it’s always fresh as well. The strawberry topping is good as well, the jam / sauce isn’t overly gooey or sweet and the strawberries are pretty decent quality. The pictures below are the small and medium size; they also have a large size. 8.5/10
Same as the previous cheesecake I described except there is a raspberry sauce and whip cream on it. This version is excellent as well. 8.5/10
Overall, it’s a great place and I highly recommend going.
