In Search of the Perfect Cheesecake

MarisCrane Apr 3, 2008 06:56 PM

Any thoughts on to die for readymade chesecake, preferably available by the slice, in the downtown core? By which I mean I live at College and Bathurst and walk to work which is in the financial district at Queen and Univresity. Anywhere in St. Lawrence Market, perhaps? Or??? Any and all thoughts appreciated!

    I'm a huge fan of La Rocca's strawberry cheesecake - it's a soft, thick cheesecake with strawberries on the top, the outside is coated with sliced almonds. Delicious! Also if I'm in a chocolate kind of mood I'll get their chocolate brownie cheesecake. A little heavier, but just as tasty. You can get both at Sicilian Sidewalk cafe (depending on the day). Or I know Free Times has the brownie, that's on your way to work. Perhaps breakfast?
    Also, sometimes the Red Room has a good berry cheesecake, I don't remember the details, it's been a while since I went there.

      Ruth's Chris has an exceptional 'mini/personal size' New York style cheesecake with sour cream topping and mixed fruit on the side. One order is equivalent to a slice. A MUST TRY!

        Believe it or not, the Keg has a great cherry cheescake that I really think is top notch!!

        I like the cheesecake at Future's on the corner of Bloor/Brunswick. Lots of different flavors available by the slice.

          I find Pusateri (yorkville location) has the best collection of cheesecake in town. They carry pretty much most of the brands out there. Price is reasonable, IMO. Enjoy!
