Best Cheesecake in Toronto??

Particularly downtown..

Don't really care for Carol's in Yorkville..
Love ACME Cheesecake but I believe that's only available at the Ex
Closest Cheesecake factory is in Buffalo... :(

  1. I seem to recall that Bibiche Bistro (on the Danforth) has a widely praised cheesecake.

    1. We always buy some slices whenever we're in Buffalo and bring them back in our cooler.

      Believe it or not, we like the cheesecake from Alice Fazooli's. I'm sure it's frozen and bought from a distributor, but it's quite good - comes with a berry coulis and we've bought it a few times as a take-out item. It's a small round shape and my husband and I share it (and I do not share when it comes to desserts).

        You can buy whole cakes frozen at the takeout counter. That's the best way to buy from Buffalo.

          Price Club has frozen Cheesecake Factory cheesecake now.
          Saw it at Warden this week.
          Unfortunately, it is only the chocolate.

        2. I tried Cheesecake Factory when I was in Buffalo and I was not impressed at all!! I prefer the Keg's cheesecake to that.

          1. The Sweet Gallery have really good raspberry and strawberry cheesecakes. They have three locations, I've been to the one on Mount Pleasant several times to get my cheesecake fix! The texture of the cream cheese is a little different from the ones at the Cheesecake factory, they are lighter and smoother, whereas the Cheesecake factory's are richer and more dense. The choices are limited compared to the Cheesecake factory but do give them a try.

              meh .. looking for good ol original Cheesecake

              1. re: dipsetrenegade

                I have to say that I use the frozen, plain President's Choice Cheesecake all the time...I think it's awesome. I top it with defrosted rasberries (the ones we picked at Whittamore's last summer) or I use a combination of rasberries and thinly sliced fresh peaches or even homemade cranberry sauce.....Give it a try....not pricey and I think it is really good (not cloyingly sweet like some others)

            2. My friend used to work at Carol's so we've had quite a lot of things from there...

              I didn't care for the original or lemon or blueberry or fudge, but the toffee one, is by far the best cheesecake I've ever had. It's like creme brulee mix cheesecake. Yeah, that's it.

                We just had a fabulous pumpkin cheesecake from where else, Summerhill Market. It was served at a dinner party and everyone loved it. Just the right amount of pumpkin, and nice and creamy texture, but light at the same time. It's made in store and I believe was $19. Very yummy indeed!
