National Cheesecake Day is July 30. Where are you celebrating? What is your favorite kind of cheesecake? Me? I’ve never meet a cheesecake variety I didn’t like. Here are 5 spots in the Atlanta area with delicious cheesecakes to enjoy the special day.
1. Cafe Intermezzo – Though their espresso machine was broken the last time I visited and not fixed in the two hours I was there, I do love this spot. I missed my usual Spanish Mokka but would definitely want to visit to celebrate the holiday. With about 100 dessert items not to mention coffee choices, this is a top spot to go on National Cheesecake Day.
Opened in 1997, Metrotainment has quickly become one of the most beloved bakeries in Atlanta. For your choice of cheesecake, visit their building on Logan Circle or head to one of the restaurants that serve Metrotainment cheesecakes like Sugar Shack or Einstein’s. Would you try an Ancho Chili Cheesecake? Sounds delicious to me, but more traditional varieties include a Lemon Ginger and Bailey’s.
3. Sweet Auburn Bakery
Located downtown in the Sweet Auburn Curb Market, you could do your grocery shopping for the week and then head over to this bakery for a sweet treat. They do offer a traditional cheesecake, but my absolute favorite is the sweet potato cheesecake.
Capra Gia Cheesecake. This delicious cheesecake is prepared with Oven Roasted Blueberries, Cardamom, Frosted Almonds and Limoncello Granita. This is rather special as it will only be available on July 30.
5. La Tagliatella – Bocconcino is their take on Cheesecake. It’s rich, creamy and everything cheesecake should be. But you’re doing it wrong if you don’t have a nice glass of Limoncello with it. La Tagliatella is located in the new Emory Point. Tip: They offer 2 hours free parking in the deck during the day, and 3 hours free parking after 5 pm.
