What a pleasant surprise. Yes, this restaurant sells only cheesecake. And that's enough, because they do it well. Actually they do it extremely well. It has the perfect lighting for a desert restaurant which adds to the atmosphere. It's great when you find a restaurant that lives up to it's name.

it was recommended by a friend's friend but I found the cheesecake too fluffy. Personally I like the New York style cheesecake, heavy and packed with cream! - once in a while with coffee or tea.

We decided to go for cheesecake after seeing a Fringe Festival play around the corner. The restaurant was a lot bigger than expected, and the service was good. The cake on the other hand, not so good. I couldn't differentiate between the whipping cream and the cheesecake. Was there any cream cheese in the cake at all? If so, I... More

I discovered this place coming back from a play at the French center. Was full jammed pack at 22h30. Only cheesecake! Very quaint, nothing fancy, young crowd and neighborhood place.

I'm terribly disappointed😥 One year later, after a great first experience in 2015 I am disappointed to report ... This place was nothing like I remember. With 4 of us visiting, the server completely missed my order, both food and drink. Even more disappointing is she didn't really seem to care or be bothered. They delivered 3 of 4 and... More

I've been going since the 80s. The restaurant is dark and the hours are restricted (opens at 7.00pm). There are a few things on the menu such as baguettes and cake as well as coffee drinks. But the raison d'être is the cheesecake. My only complaint is that sometimes the cheesecake is frozen in the middle (I think they make... More

I've been coming here since the late 80's and I've never been disappointed. It's got great drinks etc but the cheesecake is why you come! The only other cheesecake that could match it is the fancy stuff from the best restaurants, but this is what Cheesecake Etc does and they're the best.

Open 37 years, Cheesecake etc. has the dreamiest, lightest, fluffiest most delicious cheesecake in Vancouver. I might be a little bias however because I have been coming here for years and the owners Mike and Edith won me over the first time I walked in the doors. This place is so much more than cheesecake and food. It's a cafe... More

Staying in Shaughnessy

Neighbourhood Profile
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
