How good is cheesecake? Whoever had the amazing idea to blend two of the most magical things in the world—cheese and cake—is a damn genius and should be honoured forever.
But when there are so many creative and unique variations of this dessert masterpiece, it can get a bit tricky to decide where to go to get your cheesecake fix. That’s why we’ve taken the guesswork out of it for you, and lovingly prepared a list of Perth’s Best Cheesecakes. You’re welcome.
If you haven’t ever been to Jean-Claude Patisserie to buy some form of baked good, then there is a void in your life that must be filled immediately—preferably with cheesecake. And what better cheesecake than the Jean-Claude baked mango cheesecake. A delicious traditionally-baked cheesecake, with fresh mango throughout.
Although The Honeycake is known for its traditional honeycake (as the name suggests) they also step outside the square and put a honey-fied spin on the old fashioned cheesecake. It’s a traditional lemon cheesecake accompanied with swirls of honey. Lemon and honey together, kind of sounds like a cold remedy, doesn’t it? Which basically means it’s good for you.
Cookies And More
If you’re having a Treat Yo’Self Day, you should probably tuck into one of the many decadent cheesecakes from Cookies and More. They take the world’s most amazing desserts and adapt them into cheesecakes. Such as the rocky road cheesecake. Or the cookies and cream cheesecake. No, this is not a drill people.
If you want a refreshing, tropical cheesecake option, you can’t go past the coconut cheesecake at Print Hall. It’s served with toasted oats, raspberries and honeycomb.
If you’re keen for a different spin on the old-fashioned cheesecake, then you have to swing by Cakebox. They do many amazing cheesecake concoctions, but our personal fave is the Kahlua and hazelnut cheesecake. We don’t think we need to explain why, do we? Because Kahlua. And because hazelnuts. The end.
If you’re down for a taste of the exotic, then make your way to The Globe for their cheesecake. It’s a traditional lemon cheesecake—but infused with saffron to give it an unusual but delicious twist.
The team at Young George never fail to knock our socks off with their unique takes on traditional dishes, and their cheesecake is no exception. A white chocolate and gingerbread cheesecake, served with malt crumbs and rhubarb. Impressive, yes?
Isle Of Voyage
Take a trip to Isle of Voyage and you will struggle to decide on one of their many mouth-watering desserts—but you really have to go for the cheesecake. It’s a traditional strawberry and vanilla bean cheesecake, and boy is it delicious.
Sugar & Spice Patisserie
Yes, it’s a bit of a drive, but if you love cheesecake, then you need to go to award-winning, French-inspired Sugar & Spice Patisserie. Want something traditional? Then get their authentic strawberry cheesecake, topped with fresh strawberries. Or how about something unique? Then you can’t go past their chocolate cheesecake, topped with Oreos. Yes, Oreos! It will be the most rewarding road-trip you ever embark on.
The Cake Factory
The people at The Cake Factory are really just showing off when it comes to unique versions of cheesecakes—but we’re ok with it. Why? Because they have created a Limoncello cheesecake. Yes, that’s right boys and girls. Everybody’s favourite Italian liqueur has been developed into a cheesecake, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Although it’s not a ‘cheesecake’ per se, The Shorehouse gets a mention our list for their show-stopping cheesecake dish. It’s a cheesecake mousse, sitting atop of a chocolate banana cake, topped with oat crumble and hazelnut ice cream.
Also not technically a cheesecake, Petition’s cheesecake ice cream scrapes into our best cheesecake list, just for being a damn good cheesecake-inspired dessert. The cheesecake ice cream is served with mango jelly, chilli and lime. Oh yeah.
