    Oh my goodness - the yummiest cheesecake lives here! We had a mini coconut & mini chocolate cheesecake - the size is perfect & if you are feeling greedy there are plenty other things to try!

    If it is your first visit Eileen's Special Cheesecake, you must try the Plain or Strawberry cheesecake, well any fruit topping will be delicious. Eileen always have fresh products, you will love it!

    Can't purchase by slice in the store, but you can certainly try their miniatures, or take a whole cake home. You should take a whole cake home.

    Tiny shop serves fluffiest, lightest, melt-in-your-mouth cheesecake ever. Friend and I were splitting a 6" marble and were surprised at how difficult it was to divide neatly. We inhaled it anyway.

    These mini, fluffy, round-shaped, light cheesecakes make you wondering why anyone would go to Junior's. Salted caramel or strawberry is a classic, while the chocolate caramel pretzel is a new favorite

    Cheesecake heaven with countless number of options. I went for the banana cheesecake and surely didn’t disappoint. Must go cheesecake shop if you are around Little Italy.

    Seriously one of the best cheesecakes I've ever had. A small nice place but staff could smile a bit more. (Didn't get to see Eileen herself)

    Great Great Great Cheesecake! I did a 2 mile-walk just for this experience - and it was worth it! That's how original NY Cheesecake should look (and taste) like!

    Eileen's can change me to be a cheesecake lover if all cheesecakes tasted like this. Perfect texture, flavor, portion and value. Had the strawberry, loved it. Can't wait to try them all.

    One of the best places to get NY cheesecake in the city, and not as insanely priced as Junior's. Most of theirs are also sold as mini-cheesecakes, which are great for sampling.

    Screw juniors, this place sells the best cheesecake I have ever tried. Its ridiculously creamy, the strawberry was fresh, the biscuits were super soft yet added a really unique flavor. A must tru.

    Finally today I was able to try their Mango Mini Cheesecake and it’s so delicious. I’m definitely going back to get more.

    The cheesecake is perfect! Not to sweet and rich but still savory and decadent. Some cheesecakes are sweet to the point of a diabetic coma but this was perfect. If only they used real fruit on the top

    Love the size of these. The lime one was good as well as the plain. The lime was a v powerful flavor though and it sort of overpowered the cheesecake flavor TBH.

    The original is so great. If you're a chocolate lover like me get the chocolate cheesecake - so good!! The Oreo one a third fave.

    They can have the best cheesecake in town AND still be nice, smily, gentle and caring about their customers. Learn it, NYC. Congrats Eileen's!

    I grew up in this neighborhood eating her cheesecake. I didn't know how lucky I was until I tried other inferior renderings. Eileen's cheesecake is a creamy dream. Try the banana with chocolate crust.

    One of the best cheesecakes I ever had! Marble is my favorite among the ones I tried. A little off the main street but totally worth the walk.

    Tasty cheesecakes but nothing special. We took strawberry (plain topped with strawberry), amaretto (haven't found amaretto taste at all, but almonds on top were crunchy) and salted caramel (best one)

    For vegans, they have a pumpkin tofu cheesecake which they don't advertise for some reason. Vegans - go ask for it so they know there's a market and make more! :)

    This time I bought a frozen 10 inch to fly 16 hrs international hand carry. Once I remove the wrap the cake started to fall apart. It's recommended to serve it fresh!
