The Best Cheesecake in Toronto

The best cheesecake in Toronto brings together two things pretty much everyone loves: cheese and cake! Whether you prefer sky-high American-style cakes piled with luscious toppings, more minimal Japanese versions or something in between, these places bake the overall richest, fluffiest, most decadent cheesecakes in town.

Here is the best cheesecake in Toronto.

Even though this bakery now has several locations, most of which specialize in just a few baked treats like cakes and tarts in a limited range of flavours that include matcha, lineups still persist. Airy yet dense, moist and full of sweet cheesy flavour, every coveted Japanese cheesecake here is emblazoned with a crisp, cute logo.

Variety is the spice of life, and that’s embraced nowhere more than this Yorkdale location of a U.S. chain. Red velvet, Oreo, birthday, classic strawberry and more make up a menu of dozens of cheesecake options available by the slice or as whole cakes.

Despite the name, this Kensington cafe is also a classic for cakes that are all made by hand right in the back of the shop. Flavours are limited but original (such as mango chiffon) and each slice looks pretty as a picture.

You can find a range of classic cheesecakes from espresso chocolate mousse and dulce de leche to plainer strawberry and blueberry at this Eglinton West dessert emporium.

This Japanese cheesecake chain is putting up a fight against Uncle Tetsu with multiple locations including one in Scarborough Town Centre. Equally simple, light and fluffy as Tetsu though perhaps with a less impressively complex logo imprinted on the minimal, otherwise undecorated top.

North York has a home for Japanese cheesecake in this spot, with all its gooey, simple wonder. Not only do they do the classic airy, plain cheesecakes, but also double fromage cakes that come in matcha and chocolate flavours.
