Really small place but delicious cheesecake! A nice menu to choose from and little portions that are perfect if you want to try different flavours!

I hate leaving bad reviews but I really do think this place is rather overrated. Don't get me wrong my partner enjoyed his cheesecake, however mine had a very strong taste of food colouring (I had the red velvet). I was rather underwhelmed about the...More

If you are looking for New York cheesecakes, Eileen’s is one of the best places to visit. The store is small so please use your GPS and read the signs. I tried their Oreo and Blueberry cheesecake and they are divine! The price is affordable...More

Big variety of unique cakes. They don’t come in slices but mini cakes. We were planning on going there for our New York cheesecake experience and ran into a couple people who suggested it as well.

Saw reviews on TA and happened to stumble upon the shop when walking about. Popped in for a cheesecake and a hot drink. The cheesecake lived up to the hype, although the service was just okay.

This place is very small with very limited seating but selection of single portions cheesecakes is excellent!! I tried raspberry cheesecake and it was very light!

I live for cheesecake and Eileens Special Cheesecake is just about as close to heaven on earth as you can get. The texture is creamy and dense without being hard or crumbly. The crust to cake ratio is well balanced. The flavor is simultaneously delicate...More

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"!
