We have enjoyed several cheesecakes by Alex and have NEVER been disappointed! When my niece & her husband came to visit from CA (where they have EVERYTHING), we got an assortment of cheesecake slices. They absolutely loved it (as did we).

We visited on a Saturday afternoon. The wait in line was well worth it! We ordered three slices- chocolate, peanut butter and espresso. All three were excellent. We sat on the patio and sampled- the outdoor area is really nice! We liked it so much...More
