Remember that one scene from F.R.I.E.N.D.S where Rachel and Chandler fight over a cheesecake so delicately prepared, they were ready to eat it off the floor? The cheesecake from ‘Momma’s Little Bakery’, which in Rachel’s words was “ the best cheesecake I have ever had”. From the time we saw the episode and the series, we have been fantasizing about a cheesecake which would be just as good, just as creamy, smooth, light, airy and simply-put: delightful.
We have searched long and hard and have finally come up with 6 of the best cheesecake places in Lucknow and if you want to have a bite of bliss, do try these out.
The Hazelnut Factory in Nirala Nagar has been winning hearts and creating niches for itself. The bakery is one of the most lavish in Lucknow and everything they serve is pretty darn amazing, which is why we absolutely love the cheesecakes they serve here. Be it the THF special, the Blueberry cheesecake, the classic New York Style cheesecake or even their brownie cheesecake, we’re in love with every last one of them and highly recommend coming here.
Unlike most places, they do not skimp on the smooth and velvety cream cheese. Hence, the cheesecakes come out tasting pretty satisfying and sublime.
Started by the phenomenal home baker Shriya Mahendru, Cake O’ Clock is a home bakery which delivers dreamy AF products. The baker has some serious tricks up her sleeve and if you’re looking for a cake that looks as delicious as it tastes, she’s the one to order from, in Lucknow. At Cake O’ Clock, you can find amazing cheesecakes; baked to utter perfection and pretty as a picture. From Orange Florentine to Eggless Blueberry, she has done it all and we absolutely love everything that comes out of her bakery. The cheesecake to crumb ratio here is pretty fantastic so you’ll surely be getting a texture and flavour overdose.
Molecule is one of Lucknow’s favorite hangout spots. The vibe, the interiors and the food is what pulls people to the place. When it come to desserts, Molecule cuts no corners; the dessert section here is in line with their modern Indian and progressive extravaganza. Within their dessert section, they offer a gulab jamun cheesecake and the dish is succulent enough to make you drool. While the crust provides a solid texture, the innovative mix of gulab jamun and cheesecake hit all the right flavour spots. You have to try the cheesecake here; we’re pretty sure that the first bite itself will have you drooling.
While Mocha is known as one of the top cafes in Lucknow, their dessert game is pretty strong too. The cheesecakes here will woo you with their stunning presentation and simple preparation. The blueberry cheesecake and the caramel cheesecake are our favorites here; no matter what you come here for, lunch or dinner, you have to give these a try. We would highly recommend pairing the cheesecakes with a strong cup of cappuccino and enjoying the blend of a good dessert and a perfectly made cuppa’ brew.
Macaron Patisserie in Hazratganj is another one of those places where you can find a silky smooth cheesecake. Not only do they make a perfect blend of creamy and cheesy cake, they also make them as individual portions, which are visibly cuter than the slices. The raspberry cheesecake here is the perfect summer delight while the chocolate one is indulgent enough for any season. You can also find a ton of other delicious and painstakingly crafted desserts here.
The Cherry Tree Cafe is another one of our favourites. The cutesy cafe serves a great variety of cheesecakes and we love their baked blueberry cake topped with a healthy smear of blueberry jam and whipped cream. If you’re someone who loves a hit of fusion, try out their gulab-jamun cheesecake for the ultimate bite of sugary, syrupy and cheesy goodness.
So get yourself a slice, dip your spoon into the creamy depths of a cheesecake and enjoy a flavour that is a sublime blend of mushy, sweet and indulgent. Bite into a delicate cloudy flavour heaven now!
