DessertCheesecake Etc.


I love dessert, especially cheesecake. There aren’t that many great tasting cheesecakes out there — aside from some friends of ours who make a dynamite cheesecake to die for (Headnod to Matt and Ranja)! At Cheesecake Etc, their cheesecakes are pretty decent. It’s been a South Granville landmark since 1979. Cheesecake Etc. is a dessert house with jazz music on occasional nights. Dim lighting adds to this place’s jazzy and romantic ambiance. It’s a popular destination for people to bring their dates. Next door, Tigers, is owned and operated by the same people. They also serve cheesecake and caters to larger groups. Both spots are quite popular.

Unlike your typical New York style cheesecakes, they are made light and fluffy with your choice of toppings, or you could get the daily house special. All cheesecakes are made fresh in-house. Besides cheesecakes, they also have a cheese plate that is served with French bread, sliced apples, butter and jam puree. We didn’t care for this plate. The apples were pretty bitter and the cheeses were nothing special. I wouldn’t recommend ordering this here. You could easily put a plate together yourself at home and it would probably taste better. However, if you’re looking for something light and sweet to finish off the night, this place hits the spot.
