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... More

Old lady brought me here recently, shes been telling me for a while about this place. Cheesecake Machismo! If you can, try the blueberry maple cheesecake! Amazing cheesecake, good price, and nice people. Cheesecake Machismo FTW!

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.

Unbeatable. Large slices of creamy cheesecake in the yummiest of flavors! Classic - like strawberry or plain, and Modern - like caramel truffle or peanut butter, and Fabulous - like green tea with chocolate or blueberry maple. For $5 you get a slice and your choice of coffee, tea, or hot cocoa. You can take home a 12 slice "Frankencake"... More

This cheesecake is some of the best I have ever had, and the variety of innovative flavors and combinations are interesting and delicious. You can tell that these people have dedicated themselves to making the best cheesecake. The size of the slices are generous too. All Hail the Manifesto!

My fiance and I are very picky when it comes to cheesecake. Too often do places advertise "New York Style" when in fact it is not. It seems like no one actually knows what NY style is, but we do :) This place doesn't say NY style, but it's pretty damn close! This is by far the best cheesecake we... More

Lunch - what to have that is so good for your tastebuds and fun. Eat here. Whatever the daily specials are, just eat one and bring a piece home for tonight. You know you'll want it.
