We Dream About These Cheesecakes | Dishticle

The thing with cheesecake is that it’s two of our favourite things. Pardon our sloppy sentence construction, we’re just lost in thought of where to order one from. Join us?

With more branches than a bank, one of our favourite homegrown city chains is also a fortress of fantastic dessert. We’d pick the Cheesecake of the Day here unhesitatingly. The soft, light consistency of the cake ensures a warm, comforting familiarity with each bite. A generous sliver of blueberry compote adds a pleasant flavour to the party in our mouths.
Quick tip: Sundaes at Indigo Deli are a treat too!

Served with a choice of cream, gelato or mascarpone, the Vanilla-flavoured Cheesecake at PizzaExpress is gentle and homely. Possibly the lightest traditional cheesecake preparation on this list, you’ll find this too easy to polish off with a splash of berry compote.
Quick tip: Between their dough balls and cheesecake, you may not even want to order anything else.


Bastian, Linking Road, Bandra

The glorious Seasonal Mango Cheesecake at Bastain.

The glorious Seasonal Mango Cheesecake at Bastian.

Mumbai’s most inventive crab dinner also includes our heartiest loaded cheesecakes. The menu at Bastian lists 7 cheesecakes, priced at Rs 500 per slice. You’ll find a seasonal mango here, rubbing shoulders with banoffee, ferrero rocher, and tiramisu. The most indulgent of the current lot has got to be the turtle – with ingredients like chocolate shortbread crust, salted caramel, peanuts, and chocolate ganache.
Quick tip: These cheesecakes are generous enough to start an NGO.

The Kyoto is deceptively light for its brick-like shape.

The most stylish on this list, Daniel Patissier’s Japanese Cheesecake is a breath of fresh air. Gentle in flavour, the supple airiness of its texture is welcome when you see its nearly brick-like size. Packed to-go, the Kyoto also makes for a thoughtful gift for anyone with a subtle sweet tooth.
Quick tip: The Bandra outlet also has experimental macaron flavours like olive and bubblegum.

Between the Cheesecake and the NY Style Cheesecake here, you’d rather get the latter. Offered in seasonal fruit, chocolate, and lemon flavours, we’re usually lost about what to pick. On the bright side, it means that you can order the lemon as their most reliable, chocolate if you want a familiar flavour in a gentler texture, and seasonal fruit if you want to try something new.
Quick tip: Start with the Eggs Kejriwal and Akuri, our favourite egg dishes here.

Love & Cheesecake, Andheri Lokhandwala, Juhu & Powai

Let’s just say there are more cheesecake versions on the menu here than we knew about. Split into Layered, Chocolate, Cold and Baked cheesecakes, there are about 35 versions available here. New York, Blueberry, and Chocolate Cheesecakes are most popular. Other noteworthy renditions include Walnut Carrot Cheesecake, Godiva Chocolate Cheesecake, Pecan Praline Baked Cheesecake, and Peanut Butter Baked Cheesecake. This is the greatest kind of confusion we’ve come across.
Quick tip: You get the same cheesecakes at Poetry as Love and Cheesecake.

Cafe Zoe, Lower Parel

This cafe is one of our personal favorites in the city for hearty breakfasts and delicious European food. The baked cheesecakes here are velvety smooth and are always consistently delicious. Also, the ratio of the compote to every bite of your cheesecake is ideal.

Country Of Origin, Juhu, Bandra and Malabar Hill

Using the finest ingredients, Country of Origin dishes up luxury desserts that are absolutely mouth-watering. Get a humongous slice of their rich decadent Red Velvet Cheesecake which is sure to satisfy all your dessert cravings.

Quick Tip: We highly recommend trying their drool-worthy Chocolate Dome with Sea-Salted Caramel and Peanut Butter Cream Filling too.

The Pantry, Kala Ghoda

Having a reputation for its smoothie bowls and gluten-free Flower Power pizza, this all-day cafe celebrates fresh, seasonal and organic produce. We keep going back for the Spiced Guava Cheesecake Tart. The tart heroes the subtle flavour of guava and is stuffed with finely chopped and spiced pieces of the fruit. The flavours here are spicy, sweet and tangy all at the same time and we really can’t get enough.

Your Sugar Story, Bandra

Your Sugar Story by Karina Parwani is pure magic when it comes to cheesecake. Karina has created a cheesecake on a stick which is one of its kind. Available in flavours like her classic baked cheesecake, nutella and salted caramel, these scrumptious desserts are nothing like you’ve ever experienced before.

Le Pain QuotidienBKC, Powai and Lower Parel

Specializing in European and French cuisine, this is our go-to spot for brunch dates.

The Raspberry Cheesecake here will sweep you off your feet and is only for serious cheesecake lovers.The cheese is warm, smooth and complements the tangy raspberry perfectly.

August Cafe, Lokhandwala

This friendly neighbourhood cafe is a perfect spot for a date, a meeting or just when you want some alone time with your cup of coffee. We also love their authentically Italian desserts though their cheesecake is pretty darn good as well! Do not miss the Baked Cheesecake here, it’s heavenly.

Quick Tip: On a rainy day team this with a cup of delicious Belgian Hot Chocolate.

Mom’s Cheesecakes, Delivery

With the vision to put a smile on every face, baker Niti Saxena is making this happen one cheesecake at a time. Each cake is made in her kitchen, filled with cream cheese and the perfect amount of love.

The bakers at this little patisserie collectively pour their hearts into everything that they create. They carefully craft everything that comes out of their oven. And cheesecake lovers you are in for a sure treat. They have a chocolate, blueberry and a baked New York cheesecake and you need to try each one of them. Dreamily creamy, the cheesecakes here will win your heart over!

Quick Tip:  You HAVE to sink your teeth into their carrot cake, it’s so good, it will leave you speechless.

Salt Water Cafe, Bandra Reclamation and Churchgate

A local favourite to catch up with friends or just have some European favourites. Among their desserts, the Warm Cheesecake is a must-try, simply because of its perfect consistency. This cheesecake is a solid one with a crumbly crust and perfectly dense texture.

Sassy Teaspoon, Juhu, Oberoi Mall, Lower Parel and Nariman Point

The fantastic dessert outlet by Rachel Goenka has been making waves for all the right reasons. Although they offer tarts, tea cakes, ice cream, macarons and even brownies, we absolutely love devouring the Blueberry Cheesecake from this bakery. It makes for a good birthday cake too, especially for people who love a buttery, crumbly crust. Also, the blueberries and the cheese sync together perfectly. Let’s just say, you won’t stop at one slice.

Gustoso, Kemps Corner

Any place that serves up a wood-fired Pizza is already attractive. What makes Gustoso even more exciting is the vibe. You’re spoiled for choice with their delightful dessert options. Topped with seasonal fresh fruits, this cheesecake is so beautiful it’ll leave you craving for more.

Quick Tip: We suggest teaming it with their Gustoso Affogato, a dessert cocktail which will be a fine concoction for your palate.

Trust us, after reading this list, you’ll understand why life tastes better after a slice (or two) of cheesecake! Share your favourite cheesecakes with us and help us find heaven on earth.
