Best Cheesecake in the SGV/Pasadena area?

I'm munching on some cheesecake my sister bought from some catalog and it occurred to me that nothing besides Cheesecake Factory pops into mind when I think of getting cheesecake around here. The Asian bakeries' cheesecakes have their own style but what I usually want in a cheesecake is that creamy decadence (without any hint of sourness since I know a good number of people who put lemon juice in the filling!). So I just decided to see if I can get any suggestions! Thanks in advance!

  1. Wild Thyme, while not necessarily the best, is pretty good.

    Also, the Culinary School Cafe also does a good cheesecake.

    1. I actually like the cheesecake at Maria's Italian Kitchen a lot -

      It's nothing fancy, but it's good
