Cheesecake near West Hollywood

Hey chows,

I'm going to be in West Hollywood tomorrow afternoon, and I'd like to pick up two slices of cheesecake (to go) for later that night. Does anyone have a good recommendation? It can be a bakery or a restaurant as long as I can buy slices and take them home with me. I'd prefer to stay local, but I'll also be in Santa Monica that day.

I love New York Style cheesecake and the kind that's more cakey than creamy (European style?), but any variety will do as long as it's amazing.

Thanks for your help!

      2. stop by wolfgang's steakhouse in bh. they have their cheesecake flown in from junior's in brooklyn which is undoubtedly the best.

        1. On Wilshire, a quick stop on your way to Santa monica, the amazing Amandine Patisserie. (thank me later).

            I will cosign this; first thing that popped in my head. They have a more classic cheese cake, as well as a French style one.

          2. You could check Sweet Lady Janes - not sure if they have cheesecake tho.

            1. Urth Cafe on Melrose in West Hollywood has small cheesecakes good enough for 3-4 people.
              Also Trader Joes has a new york cheesecake in their frozen aisle that you just need to defrost for a couple hours but it is amazing. I brought one to my friend for her birthday and she was loving it and asked where I got it from and I said tjs and now shes hooked.

                Urth Caffe's cheesecakes are my favorite! After tasting a couple of varieties, I recommend the Oreo cheesecake most of all. If you go early in the morning (before 10 am), you can get a deal on last night's cheesecakes at half price. :)

                  I like the TJ's New York Style Cheese Cake as well.. The one in the Blue Box. Defrost as eat.. Slices tick away like minutes on the hour...

                2. Everyone is going to yell at me, but I like the cheesecake at Canters. Crumbly, not too sweet, graham cracker crust, topped with sour cream...

                  1. I haven't had the plain cheescake but the pumpkin cheesecake at Susina is very fine. I imagine the plain is similiar.

                    And the canters cheescake (the less stodgy one is still might stodgy; the stodgy one is very stodgy aka European) is one of their better items.

                    1. not my cup of tea at all, but Ruth's Chris has a cheesecake just as you describe it.
