- brian homan
what are the best cheesecakes to be found in the TC??
does Cheesecake Factory earn a rec??
isnt there a place in stpaul specializing in cheesecake??
You're likely referring to:
Muddy Paws Cheesecake
740 N Snelling Ave
They have a location in Uptown as well. Good stuff.
In that area, I also like the cheesecake at Coffee News Cafe on Grand just west of Snelling.
Buon Giorno in Lilydale does some outstanding cheesecakes (flavors vary daily and are often interesting) and other wonderful desserts. When I do takeout there, the desserts never make it out of the store -- they're eaten before the other food comes.
By the way, I know Muddy Paws does whole cheesecakes, but I'm not sure about the other two...you may have to call ahead.
Looking forward to other posts. I love cheesecake.
I'd second the Coffee News Cafe recommendation.
Cafe Latte on Grand and Victoria in St. Paul also has some really good cheesecakes. They always offer their classic vanilla, and sometimes have other flavors as well.
