Pumpkin Cheesecake suggestions?

I'm looking to order a pumpkin cheesecake for thanksgiving. I normally order from Susiecakes but the max size is 8" and I would like to get something larger than that. I was thinking of giving Essential Chocolates in Culver City a shot or possibly Patticakes in Pasadena. Both offer 10" cheesecakes that would suit my requirements. Any opinion on either of these two? Any suggestions for other spots? Thanks.

  1. While I am not positive of the size the version we had from Susina Bakery on Beverly Blvd. was excellent. I'm sure they are doing them again this year.

    1. hdalsy's Pumpkin Banana Mousse Tart recipe was moved over to the Home Cooking board:

      1. My favorite is the Surfas Pumpkin Cranberry Cheesecake... really, really fab...

          oh yum! is it in the freezer section or in the bakery section of the cafe?

            In the cafe... seriously the best Pumpkin Cheesecake ever...


        2. Susina makes a great classic pumpkin cheesecake. And I remember thinking the pricing was reasonable for size, appearance, quality, and tastiness.

            thanks. I should have probably mentioned I wanted to try from shops other than Susina and Sweet Lady Jane.

            In past years they had a great spiced pumpkin cheesecake on a gingersnap crust. Super good.

              that would be perfect as I live in Arcadia. thanks, i'll give them a call tomorrow. i didn't know they sold baked goods. i've only gone for brunch a couple of times and never wandered around the restaurant.

              edit: it doesn't look like it's on their thanksgiving menu this year.
