You literally can’t go wrong with a spot that has “cheesecake” in its name, and Carole’s is an absolute must-visit in Toronto.

Carole has been baking cakes for over 40 years, and all the cakes in her shop are baked in small-batches using all-natural ingredients.

From their mouthwatering Classic New York Cheesecake to their decadent Caramel Brownie Cheesecake, they’ve got plenty of delicious cheesecake options to choose from.

You’ll also find some gluten-free, keto, and vegan cheesecakes, which is fantastic for my friends with dietary restrictions.

You can find Carole’s in the heart of swanky Yorkville, and they’ve also got a cheesecake counter inside an unassuming game shop by Yonge & Eglinton.

LOCATION: 114 Cumberland St, Toronto, ON

Dufflet Pastries

Dufflet has been offering up premium, handcrafted desserts since the ’70s.

You’ll find plenty of classic and unique cheesecake options, from their decadent Caramel Pecan Fudge Cheesecake to their incredible New York Raspberry Cheesecake.

Cheese Garden North York, Toronto

Cheese Garden

If you love Japanese sweets, you’ll definitely want to stop into Cheese Garden for their delicious variety of Japanese cakes and pastries.

If you haven’t had a Japanese cheesecake before, it’s kind of comparable to a spongecake, but more creamy and pastry-like in texture.

They’re also not as sweet as the typical American cheesecake, which is a plus for my friends who don’t like super sweet desserts.

You’ll find classic Japanese cheesecakes, double fromage cheesecakes, and even baked cheese tarts at Cheese Garden.

Cheese Garden North York, Toronto

They also frequently have seasonal offerings, including white peach and sakura cakes in the spring!

This modern cheesecake café has locations both in North York and Scarborough.

Uncle Tetsu Bakery in Toronto, Ontario

Uncle Tetsu

Uncle Tetsu was actually the very first bakery to bring Japanese cheesecakes to Toronto, and Japanese-inspired treats have been all the rage since then.

Japanese cheesecakes also have very few ingredients, and Uncle Tetsu’s cheesecakes are made using just cream cheese, butter, milk, sugar, flour, and egg.

The original cheesecake is delicious, but they’ve also got matcha and chocolate variations if you prefer those flavours instead!

Uncle Tetsu has several locations across the GTA, including their original spot by Yonge & Dundas and inside Union Station.

And if you’re wondering, Uncle Tetsu is a real person – he grew up working at his parents’ cake shop and ran various businesses until he opened Uncle Tetsu in 1990!

Tofu Cheesecake at Cafe Wanoka in Scarborough

Cafe Wanoka

Have you ever had a tofu cheesecake before? Yep, that’s a thing, and it’s delicious.

Cafe Wanoka’s silky Tofu Cheesecake is wonderfully light, creamy, and not-too-sweet, and you can grab a slice or an entire cake.

They’ve also got a variety of other Japanese-inspired treats like cream puffs, chiffon cake sandwiches, and puddings.

You’ll also find an extensive drink menu (with options like their Hojicha Latte and Strawberry Milk) and some savoury brunch and lunch options.

The Cheesecake Factory

When Cheesecake opened up at Yorkdale Mall several years ago, people were literally waiting hours in line just to get inside, and I have to say it’s worth the hype.

It’s still very busy today, but definitely not as bad as when they first opened!

Their food is actually quite good, especially for a chain restaurant.

They’ve got a gargantuan menu featuring over 250 internationally-inspired dishes, with delicious options like their Korean Fried Cauliflower, Cheeseburger Spring Rolls, and Avocado Eggrolls.

You’ll also find over 40 amazing cheesecakes and desserts to choose from, including their Fresh Strawberry Cheesecake, Dulce de Leche Caramel Cheesecake, and Mango Key Lime Cheesecake.
