Popped down here when shopping in neighbourhood. Absolutely lovely cheesecake - light and easy to eat. Didn’t eat in but it’s very small so wouldn’t seat many. Definitely worth getting down there and trying the cheesecake - it’s amazing. We had lemon, s’mores and strawberry...More

We found this place via our guide, Derrick, from Free Tours by Foot, and wow it was a great recommendation. Sorry, I am not a fan of cheesecake, Juniors's cakes are dry and for me, have no flavor. But Eileen's cheesecakes are homemade, soft baked,...More

We get chocolate, cherry, creme brûlée, and chocolate cappuccino almost every time. The service is fast, store is small and clean, and we go out of our way to go back.

This place is very cosy - not much seating area- but the cheesecake is one of the best I’ve had. All homemade and authentic. Highly recommended.

Wow! This is a real jem, and somewhere that any cheesecake fan has to go. Delicious, perfect portions, friendly service, and all round brilliant culinary NY experience. We walked some distance to find it - but it was worth every step!

Once the artistic hub of New York City, SoHo (South of

most popular luxury brands to swank boutiques you

shopper’s dream come true. Broadway teems with

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"!
