Open since 2016, B’s Cheesecakes is owned and operated by Bonita and Jim Lacey. Housed in a small corner bakery just off Riverside Drive, B’s Cheesecakes have taken traditional cheesecakes to a whole new level.
With scrumptious offerings like the caramel apple crisp or the triple chocolate, each cheesecake is completely different from one amazing flavor to the next. Even if you aren’t a cheesecake lover, one visit to B’s Cheesecakes will make you change your tune. With amazing ingredients and many flavor creations to choose from, all patrons will leave here with their sweet tooth satisfied.
Bonita’s base recipe is her own personal spin on the New York-style cheesecake. From there, she adds all different ingredients to create her wondrous array of desserts. Customers have ample variety when choosing their own personal cheesecake. The personal cheesecakes are $5 each, and there is a fresh selection of flavors each day. Full-size cheesecakes are available, as well, and must be ordered at least a couple of days in advance.
The chocolate crunch cheesecake is a luscious and creamy cheesecake, topped off with a homemade chocolate and cookie crumble topping that gave a fantastic crunch to this chocolate lover’s dream. Sat on top of the creamy smooth cheesecake, the cookie topping added a decadent flavor to the already delicious treat. The crust of the cheesecake was a moist and delicious chocolate cake base.
The Nutter Butter cheesecake is a robust cheesecake that has pockets of a homemade peanut butter cream throughout and a Nutter Butter cookie crust. The creation was rich and creamy with the just the right amount of the peanut butter cream. You taste the richness of the peanut butter cream, but it doesn’t overpower the scrumptious flavor of the cheesecake.
The Beachaven blackberry cheesecake is made with a homemade blackberry puree using fresh blackberries and our local winery’s Beachaven Blackberry Merlot in the cooking process. This smooth and creamy traditional cheesecake is swirled with the blackberry puree to give a savory and sweet edge to the dessert, all on an exquisite handmade graham cracker crust.
B’s Cheesecakes can also be found out and about around town at local and corporate events via the B Mobile. The B Mobile is a converted travel trailer that gives Bonita and Jim the chance to take their homemade creations on the road. Usually found at Dinner with the Trucks event on Riverside Drive, the B Mobile is stocked up with freshly made cheesecakes of all flavors. To find out more information on the B Mobile, you can contact the Lacey’s at 931-896-BAKE.
B’s Cheesecakes is at 305 N. Riverside Drive, just behind Mary’s Music Store. It is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and closed Sundays and Mondays.
