Cheesecake Etc. - still good


Cheesecake Etc.

2141 Granville St, Vancouver

Cheesecake Etc. on Urbanspoon

Food: 3.5
Service: 2.5
Price: Fair

This place has been around for as long as I can remember, and the last time I was here was probably 7-8 years ago. All I remember from that visit was great cheesecake, but terrible ambience and lighting. From our most recent visit, this place has certain changed.
The restaurant has gone under some serious change, it now about 3 times the size it use to be with much better lighting. Since the restaurant is so big, they even offer live music from time to time.
Despite all the change in appearance, the menus pretty much stayed the same. They still only offer a few types of cheesecake with various topping.
Original with strawberry compote - $5.75
- creamy and moist
- not heavy or dense
- not overly sweet either
- strawberry compote was lacking a tartness, overly sweet for me
Regular with blueberry compote - $6.5
- did not try this one, but cheesecake is the same
- blueberry sauce had large full size berries.

The cheesecake was as good as I remembered, but the service was the same: lackluster. The price of course has gone up as well. Now with a bigger place, at least the wait time is down. If you are craving cheesecake, this would certainly serve the purpose. However there are also quite a few other options, such as Sweet Obession.
