Cheesecake Etc.

Date Visited: September 12 2014
Address: 2141 Granville St  Vancouver, BC
Type of Restaurant: Desserts/ice cream, coffee/tea
Price Range: $$
Ambiance (out of five)/Setting/Design/service: Service – was slow and unbelievable unresponsive, the ambiance was very romantic 3/5 because it was so dark and moody, the design was very old school coffee shop feel
Overall: 6.5/10
(1-4: will never come back, 5: pass (I’m okay with a tinier morsel), 6: acceptable, 7: okay, 8: good, 9: Wow! Please enlarge my morsel. 10: Perfection. I could eat a morsel of this every day!)
Will come back? No – I’ve been eating their cheesecakes ever since I was little and I guess it always held a special place in my heart. But I haven’t visited in a long time and now that I have, I guess my palate has matured. It’s not what it used to be, but it will always be part of my childhood memories.
What I ate:
Cheesecake with Mocha sauce
  • 6.5/10
  • Very rich and dense, the cheese flavour was not very prominent though
  • The mocha sauce didn’t add any extra flavour or texture
  • Wasn’t too sweet
Gourmet Original Cheesecake – Tiramisu
  • 7/10
  • Not as rich as the original cheesecake with mocha sauce
  • had the lightness of a tiramisu but lacked the creaminess and liquor fragrance
Things to Improve on:
  • This dessert place has been around for 35 years and being named cheesecake etc. I would hope that their cheesecakes would be near perfection.
  • Unfortunately that isn’t the case. There cheesecakes are not as good as I would expect them to be
  • Service also lacked friendliness and attentiveness
Summary: The cheesecakes aren’t that good.
