I know I'm not alone when I say cheesecake is one of the best desserts you could ever have. It can be dense and creamy, or it can be light and fluffy and everything in between. They all start with a buttery graham cracker base and a cream cheese filling, but each bakery can make their own twist on it.
If you're a cheesecake lover that's been scouring the city for the best cheesecakes, then I'm here to help you out. Here's a list of the most amazing cheesecakes this city has to offer! Don't feel guilty about indulging in these desserts.
1. Sophie Sucrée
If you're looking for a classic cheesecake with a delicious twist, then Sophie Sucrée has got you covered. They make their classic cake into a cute square and top it with caramel and hazelnuts! They're seriously delicious and super popular. Bonus is that they're vegan, along with all of the other desserts in this bakery.
2. Boulangerie Premiere Moisson
Definitely one of the best cheesecakes Montreal has to offer. They make their cheesecakes with a classic crumbly graham cracker base, cream cheese and sour cream for their soft centre and they top it with a pile of fresh fruits!

3. Boulangerie Cheskie
A Jewish bakery which makes amazing kosher pastries! They make a unique version cheese cake called a 'cheese crown' which is essentially a cheese cake pie. They also make a cheese marble swirl cake.
