My wife and I stopped here with the kids and had a great piece of their Blueberry Maple Cheesecake. Just delicious and moist, like cheesecake should be.

This is a little place, tucked away, with amazing cheesecake. A slice, with a drink $5. And it's so yummy. Chocolate Buzz was delicious. Everyone should go try this place!

I travel quite a bit and have yet to find a place that beats the Cheesecake here. Sooo Many flavors for foodgasms. Make sure you get here early because they run out, especially during holidays.

$5 a slice, and your choice of a free hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Price does not change if you decided not to take the free drink. Well worth the price, hope you enjoy! :)
