Best Cheesecake Case

Fabulous Cheesecakes at Mozart's Coffee Roasters

Chocolate or vanilla, key lime or raspberry swirl? Butterscotch, grasshopper, mocha, or turtle? Strawberries, raspberries, and blueberries on top, or some combination thereof? How about some crumbled candy bar with caramel drizzle instead? Mozart's not only has a great lake view, strong coffee, and wireless Internet access, but it also boasts one of the most spectacular cheesecake selections in the Western Hemisphere. They start with a creamy basic cheesecake, made by Kim of Georgetown's Fabulous Cheesecakes, and then crown it with their own magnificent in-house toppings. If you're on a diet, don't so much as glimpse into their glowing, glorious dessert case – yeah, the one you're flush up against as you wait in line – because resistance is futile. The fluffy slices yield enough lusciousness for two, but if you're in for a long night of solo studying or working, no one will fault you for not asking for a doggie bag.
