Who's got the best cheesecake in town??

Postby Michael Patrick » Mon Sep 03, 2007 7:09 pm

My birthday is coming up, and I told my wife I want cheesecake. I'd be willing to have it either as dessert after a reasonably-priced sit down meal, or by buying a whole one to eat at home (by myself, locked in my room, not sharing, no, it's my birthday...).

So, who has the best cheesecake in town?

My favorite is Brocach with Baileys topping.

You can get Cheesecakery goods at a couple of places in town. They are ridiculously good. I believe I had one at Captain Bill's - go there only for dessert if at all, the food kind of sucks - and Capitol Chophouse maybe.

I got some pretty nice cheesecake, with raspberry topping, at Willy Coop. It was kind of a naughty thing for me to do, so I didn't look at the label. I would describe it as, smooth, creamy, very rich and sinfully delicious.

Mmm... cheesecake. I can taste it already.

Wasn't there a "Married With Children" episode that dealt Al lusting after cheesecake?

Anyway, thanks to everyone who has chimed in, keep the suggestions coming.

Wisconsin Cheesecakery is unfortunately no longer with us....a huge loss.

Grace cheesecakes is pretty good--it's what they have for dessert at Weary Traveler now.

I didn't care for the cheesecake at Weary Traveler - different strokes, I guess. I grew up on very dense, crustless cheesecake, and while I don't fault cheesecake with crusts, what they serve at WT wasn't dense enough for my taste.

COZEE INN
410 W. Verona Ave.
Verona, WI. 845-6471

We ate ther last night. A very nice place.
They have a dessert menu that includes three cheesecake selections.

We were too full to try any, so I can't say how good it is.
But it's there.

It is such a shame that the Wisconsin cheesecakery is gone. It was the best ive ever had. Does anyone know why it closed?

I was waiting to see ow this thread played out. I guess the original request was literal. I always understood cheesecake to be slang for, well, cheesecake.

"It's what's for dessert."

I don't know why Cheesecakery closed, but I tried Grace cheesecake at the Willy St Fair - and I didn't like it.
