Stepping into the Cheescake Cafe, the first thing that catches your eye is the display of cheesecakes, regular cakes and tarts you have the option of choosing from. The atmosphere was actually surprising as it had a very lively vibe. There was also a modern feel to the decor with nice leather couches and dark wooden tables. It did not give off the feel of a "family restaurant." Being greeted by the hostesses, we were told that it might be a little while before being seated. My friend and I were quite perplexed by this as we could see MULTIPLE empty tables. After about 10-15 minutes we were seated at a booth.

Overall, the cheesecake was nothing special. I've definitely had better desserts, and really have made better cheesecake than what the Cheesecake Cafe is offering. If I go out for dessert, I want to have something that is beyond my baking abilities, but this felt as if I could make it pretty easily. The Cheesecake Cafe has a nice and trendy atmosphere but my visit reinforced the fact that I should never doubt myself in the first place. The Cheesecake Cafe was what I thought it was - nothing special. For dessert, I don't think I'll be returning anytime soon.
