This is the best place ever. I never even liked cheesecake until I tried it here. They always have different unique flavors. Easy to get to in the heart if Albany right off Lark Street one of the few places that don't have meter parking....More

This is a little place, tucked away, with amazing cheesecake. A slice, with a drink $5. And it's so yummy. Chocolate Buzz was delicious. Everyone should go try this place!

I travel quite a bit and have yet to find a place that beats the Cheesecake here. Sooo Many flavors for foodgasms. Make sure you get here early because they run out, especially during holidays.

$5 a slice, and your choice of a free hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Price does not change if you decided not to take the free drink. Well worth the price, hope you enjoy! :)
