Styled as a 1950s Parisian café, this sweet haven near the Granville Bridge bursts at the seams on Saturday nights. Heavy on the cheesecake and light on the etc., the cakes are dense enough to support the Eiffel Tower and oh so flavourful. Buy the slice or take the whole cake—plain ($26) and chocolate ($31)—and tubs of toppings, too. Open nightly, 7 p.m. to 1 a.m., cash only.

This place is fantastic.
The cheesecake is soft and not overwhelmingly sweet and the house made strawberry jam on top of it? Perfection. Absolutely love the combo it is delicious. The restaurant is nice and dark and candles are lit at every table setting a good romantic night out kind of atmosphere.(it is quite dark)
The owner plays piano while the cakes get served out by the servers as well...... more

Their cheese cake is light and creamy, and the sauce and whip creme complement to perfection. My fav is the original with strawberry sauce and london fog. Live music also creates jazzy classic vibe, this is a definitely good place to end your date. I'm looking forward to visit again this Christmas. Two thumbs up!

My to-go place for late night cheesecake! I really like their strawberry original cheesecake paired with either a latte or tea. It's usually very busy and lively during the evenings on weekends and sometimes on weekdays as well. Sometimes they have live music. Thankfully, this place is spacious and they have a lot of tables.

Super good cheesecake with hot apple cider for an autumn night. The decoration and atmosphere is nice,besotted helpful and friendly. The cheesecake was good and the fresh handmade cream really added to the taste. I think the Strawberry sauce was house made, for it was fresh and not too sweet. My friend said that the blueberry should be better, I would try that for the next time.

I'm a cheesecake fan, I had it with blueberries. They were soft, light and delicious. I also like my tea latte - it was a good pair.

Tried cheesecake etc out for the 3rd time...we went for a friends birthday.
The cheesecake was meh. I had the gourmet cheesecake that had black cherry on it. Once again, I think it was canned cherry? I'm not really sure what they use for their fruit sauces but it seems canned. (Maybe not the strawberry sauce though but that's always a simple recipe).

The cheesecake is very fluffy. I prefer dense cheesecake. But they give generous portions. The strawberry compote is made of real strawberry and doesn't taste artificial. I really appreciated that. The blueberry sauce also uses real blueberries but they taste strange. I would rather try another restaurant than return here.

I could have made better cheesecake. What happened to their recipe?

I have tried this place a handful of times in my life and yesterday night was the worst thus far. The cheesecake (the chocolate one) was mousse-like and watery. The taste was there but the texture was lacking in all forms. I wanted my money back. To make it more unpleasant, the light above our table kept dimming in and out.

Hands down probably some of the best cheesecake I've ever had - I'm still drooling thinking about it!! Its definitely a perk that it's open late, but ambiance wise, I think it's a little too dark inside at times. I had the original cheesecake with strawberries on it, and it was perfectly moist and fluffy. We didn't stay for long, since we had had a long day, but I left satisfied!

One of my favourite dessert places in Vancouver. I always get an original cheese cake with strawberry sauce. Can't go wrong with this choice! I tried over 10 times here so far, and every time I visited I had a very pleasant experience. This can be a nice dessert spot after romantic dinner and even ideal for a large group of people. And plus, they open till pretty late!

One thing I like about this place is that they open late. Their cheesecake are delicious but sometimes I find it to be a hit and miss. There were times I found it quite dry and at most time nice and moist. The tea selection is ok. they do have like 10 different latte and 3 different fogs (which is basically different tea bags). The tea bags that they use are the ones you can get off the shelf... more

For some reason Japanese tourists keep giving this place a decidedly undeserved popularity that got my wife curious about trying this place.

Best cheesecake ever. Nice and creamy. No overwhelming heavy taste. We had a Pina colada and strawberry. Both were amazingly good. Could have more. I wonder if they sell the entire cake. I would be so ambitious to eat them all at one sitting.

The classic cheesecake with strawberry sauce is my favourite. But I have complaints about the consistency of the service.

I've been coming here for years, way back before the double expansions and when the restaurant resembled a long and narrow hallway. There's a reason why they expanded twice and there's still a line to get a table sometimes. The cheesecake is really good, the best I've had in Vancouver. It's different, soft, creamy, and light, I'm guessing unbaked even.

Delicious and chill! This place is hard to describe. Perhaps a s a late-night cheesecake speakeasy. The place is in a historical Vancouver building and has a warm, dark, cozy 30's nightclub feel. Not what you'd expect. But a great place to go after dinner for coffee, tea and fantastic Cheesecake!

We ordered a original and a chocolate cheese cake with peanuts, the cake was very light and creamy, didn't have much cheese taste, well, it's probably because I have a strong taste, but this is definitely not suitable for the one with strong cheese expectation. And it doesn't have biscuit base, which also surprised me. Quite different from the Italian recipe. However, generally, it tasted good.
