Plain, simple, average. From the entrance, to the place itself, to the product, it's average. It's not good, but it's also not bad, which one may think serves a purpose. We had four different: blueberry, raspberry, pineapple and caramel. After tasting them all I now...More

Was recommended to go to this little cheesecake place and it didn't disappoint. We had small little cakes of amaretto, velvet cake, pumpkin and salted caramel. All were very good

This tastes ok. But I like cheesecake thats a little thicker and not so fluffy and a little more of a tart flavor. Cheescake here is a little boring and plain. Also they where out of 6 inch cheescakes at 2pm so i had to...More

Luxury Trips by Bea first tried Eileen's Special Cheesecake by pure chance in 2015. It was a total accident while on a tour around a couple of areas, we all got peckish and so made the tour make a veto to this wonderful little bakery....More

We thoroughly researched dining options before our recent holiday in New York City. Eileen's Special Cheesecake was very highly rated on TripAdvisor, but also in other 'Best Cheesecake in NYC' articles. Eileen's wasn't very close to any of our other trip itinerary stops, but it...More

Eileen's cheesecake is one of the best in the city, and more fluffy and light than your traditional dense NY cheesecake. Lots of flavors -- my favorite is the classic cherry!

I read on the internet about the cheesecake before we went to NY. We specially searched for it after our walk on the brooklyn bridge. We had the caramel cheesecake. Really delicious. You must trie one. More than 25 choices.

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of
Houston) is now one of the premiere shopping
destinations in the world. Housing everything from the
most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you
won’t find anywhere else, this is a sophisticated
shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with
big-name stores and people during the day, while
Prince and Spring Streets are the other main drags to

Funny how the Q&A invite-to-answer system works. I got the sugar free one but not this. The answer here is much simpler: Yes. But melumar already told you that. ;)

I stand to be corrected but I don't think they do on their regular menu. I have very little doubt they'd make you one, though, as a special order. Either way, if you don't get a clear answer here (and even if you do), I'd... More

Eileen's Special Cheesecake opened for business in December, 1975, and arrived in lower Manhattan on December 4, 1976. It was a "ghost town" when I first arrived, but that didn't bother me because the rent was low and I desperately needed a place to bake for my growing wholesale business. I hadn't considered the retail aspects of the business until people started knocking on the door of the bakery wanting to buy cheesecake. With that encouragement, I purchased a bakery case and began to conduct retail business. Soon after our cheesecake attracted the press and we were listed in "Best Bites" in New York Magazine. Radio station WOR rated us "Number One Cheesecake" and we appeared on television quite often whipping up batters of cheesecake. Time passed, and now Cleveland Place is in a popular area where the mix of people and restaurants and shops are so unique. Downtown is becoming the "place to be", and we are actually on most maps now. We survived difficult times, and now "let the good times roll"!
