A friend of mine who lived in Halifax recommended the Sweet Hereafter and it did not disappoint. We had our cakes to go and devoured them at the Halifax Public Gardens. We both enjoyed our cheesecake and we would definitely return.

Stopped in for dessert after eating out nearby. The cheesecakes here are delicious. The choices rotate, so you never know what the choices will be when you arrive, but that is also part of the adventure there. Decor is nice, definitely has a date night,...relaxing feel to it. Always a good choice if cheesecake is your thingMore

Stopped to finally introduce someone else to this place. Hasn't lost its charge or taste. Although on the pricier side of things, it's a spot you go occasionally for a delicious treat. Strawberry shortcake, and vanilla fudge brownie. Yet to be disappointed other than coffee...crisp no longer exists.More

Did I mention that they sell cheesecake? This is a small little cafe that serves big slices of cheesecake. I fell in love with the cheesecake and the atmosphere. There were 7 in our party and we each had a different cake. Everyone loved their...choice. They also have some short bread and other options as well plus the usual assortment of drink choices.The only drawback is that they don't offer anything else for food items so this is an after dinner stop. They also sell entire cakes for you to take home, if it makes it that far.More

What a sweet spot for a date with my wife. The decor is very inviting and the staff so helpful. They are well located amongst other businesses, but worth going to just for their delicious cheese cakes. My wife and I are both chocolate lovers,...so she had a slice of the chocolate Irish cream cheese cake I had a slice of the black forest cheese cake. They were both silky smooth, moist, and full of rich taste.More

Have enjoyed dairy-free cheesecake here a number of times, and it is always good, although two of our party had the dairy-free oreo cheesecake and actually didn't enjoy that flavour. Every other type have had has been delectable, particularly the chocolate with raspberry sauce that...you can put over it yourself. The decor is beautifully and tastefully done, and the service is always helpful and friendly. The only thing is that the cheesecake is quite expensive, but you get what you pay for!More

Popped in for some take-away dessert. Our two selections were prettily packaged in a black box that would have been suitable for gifting - so happy to see they aren't using plastic! Wished we could have stayed to sit on the extravagant high-backed bejeweled upholstered...bench. The maple pumpkin cheesecake was to die for. I found the s'more cheesecake a bit too sweet, but it was devoured at home. Would definitely recommend.More

I order full cheesecakes for parties and office functions a few times a year. I have never been disappointed by the quality of the cheesecakes or the service provided by the owners and staff. They gave a wide range of Gluten Free options and their...flavour choices are exceptional. If you haven’t tried this gem of a dessert place in Halifax, you’re missing a culinary treat. The service is so great, they even did a specialty cheesecake that was a bit off season (Candy Cane) on request for a wedding rehearsal party. Very happy bride and groom! Thanks for making special occasions even more special!More

Went in about a half hour before they were closing so got a slice for take out. Boston cream was recommended as a popular choice and not very sweet so I went for it. It was good! Was hoping to go back to try other...flavours but on the next trip hopefully!More

I’ve had a lot of desserts in my lifetime but I must admit that the Cadbury mini egg cheesecake is by far my favourite! So decadent but not overly sweet. Perfect creamy texture! Highly recommend this place for all your cheesecake cravings, you won’t be...disappointed!! Tip: better deal to just order a whole cheesecake (10 slices) for $40 than $8 a slice.More

Doesn’t look like much from outside, but it’s very cute inside. You can order a piece of cheese cake and a drink or preorder a cake to take home. It’s some of the best cheesecake I’ve had. The staff was also friendly and helpful.

Unique dessert cafe. Delightful cheesecake - lots of variety. Small community cafe that has that old time feel. Hot chocolate was very good as well. Everything was great for the parking ticket I got outside!!! Rainy night and I didn't see the sign!! LOL
