Wondering what people think is the best cheesecake in SF - preferrably where we can buy and eat at home.

    You wouldnt know it...but the BEST, I mean BEST Cheesecake in the city can be found at Gaspares on Geary. His wife (Robin I think) makes it daily.

      If you love rich, dense cheesecake then you have to try Buca di Beppo on Howard Street it is absolutely divine!

          The plain cheesecake at Just Desserts is the best dense NY-style I've had around here.

              I don't think they've ever changed their recipes.

            Love Zanze's. Warning, it is much lighter than the ones made in NY or the east coast. If you're looking for that, don't expect it from here.
