A restaurant I frequent serves amazing cheesecake and I asked who made it....Southern Sweets! I ended up getting one for a friends birthday and it was a hit! Eager to try the others as well. Amazingly nice staff as well!

The desserts are to die for! They make dessert for many upscale Atlanta restaurants. They have great breakfasts and sandwiches, too. I usually get Birthday cakes here.
