In my entire life, I have never eaten such amazing cheesecake. No wonder it is called Eileen's Special Cheesecake. During the current heatwave, it was cool, creamy and decadent. I can't wait to become a regular customer at Eileen's. I already called the store and...More

We tried the small cheesecakes - the flavors we tried were mango, coconut, plain, chocolate and marble. They were all delicious.

We have never had cheesecake like the one we got at Eileen's. It was light, fluffy, not too sweet, just perfect for my taste. We almost didn't go because it was 90 degree that day, fortunately we eventually went and they did not disappoint. Staff...More

The cheesecake was perfectly rich and smooth. We ordered three kinds: salted caramel (looks and tastes more like a creme brulee), blueberry and strawberry. Gone within seconds!

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"!
