Good, reasonably prized Cheesecake in GTA

CoCoNuts May 31, 2003 12:42 PM

My dear fellow chowhounds:
My quest to search for the perfect cheesecake in GTA is beginning to bankrupt me. Yes, I've had some pretty incredible desserts at high-end restaurants (ex Bodega, Senses, Bouchon) but it's unlikely I will be visiting there any time soon. Do you have a recommendation for pastry/dessert places that serves other than Dufflet stuff? And preferably under $5.

    Before you go completely bankrupt, don't forget to try Carole's Cheesecakes on Castlefield. I know you can buy some of her cheesecakes around the city but I figure why not just go right to the source...and it's all worth it...

        Ever tried the President's Choice line of cheesecakes?

        PC New York-Style Cherry Cheesecake
        PC New York-Style Original Cheesecake
        PC New York-Style Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake
        PC New York-Style Wild Blueberry Cheesecake

        They're quite good and usually just under $5. Only thing I'm not crazy about is the crust - just seems a little too shortbread-y for my taste.

          Are you talking about a whole cheesecake for <$5?

          That would be mighty impressive.

          Dante's Italian Restaurant tends to have nice cheesecakes. ~$3 per enormous slice.

            PC is actually pretty good, but they are small. Still a great value though and you only need a little.

              I like the new flavour that just came out last Saturday for the Insider's Report, President's Choice Caramel Apple Cheesecake with Pecan Streudel. On sale for $4.99. Rather luscious.

                  Just saw your posting.

                  You've gotta go to Loblaws, not Dominion!
