This is a little place, tucked away, with amazing cheesecake. A slice, with a drink $5. And it's so yummy. Chocolate Buzz was delicious. Everyone should go try this place!

$5 a slice, and your choice of a free hot chocolate, coffee or tea. Price does not change if you decided not to take the free drink. Well worth the price, hope you enjoy! :)
