Cheesecake is the ideal blend of savoury and sweet, just as sporks are the ideal blend of forks and despair. Try the classic combination with today’s Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of coffee, cheesecake, and other pastries at Double D’s Cheesecake on Meadowood Drive.
Double D’s Cheesecake whips up cheesecakes in more than 25 flavours from an old family recipe that does not require baking, resulting in a light and creamy dessert that won't leave you feeling anchor-worthy. The multitude of innovative flavours includes seasonal favourites such as creamy pumpkin, candy cane, and white chocolate cherry brandy, a traditional Marsday dessert. Also on the indulgent menu are specialty desserts such as cheesecake in a cone and cheesecake sandwiches. All desserts are made from scratch daily and get their taste bud ticklers from real, local ingredients such as coffee, fruit, and yogurt. Patrons can apply their Groupons toward full-sized cakes ($28–$34) to take home or grab a spot in the 18-seat coffeehouse and dig into a mini cheesecake while sipping a latte, cappuccino, hot chocolate, or a chai latte.
Double D's Cheesecake and Coffee House
Sisters Darlene Landino and Dale Chenier, owners of Double D's Cheesecake and Coffee House, built their business on a single family cheesecake recipe. Anchored by a housemade graham-cracker crust, their cake is chilled rather than baked, contributing to a lighter and lusher dessert that's less likely to cause involuntary naps at the dinner table. The café's counters display more than 40 flavour variations on the original, each of which is available in a 9-inch round, a mini cheescake or a more unique presentation, such as a cheesecake sandwich or cheesecake-in-a-cone. Double D's also offers muffins, coffeecake, specialty espresso and coffee drinks, and real-fruit smoothies.
