Bakery Nouveau | Multiple locations

Award-winning Bakery Nouveau has become a Seattle go-to for baked and handcrafted confections such as classic breakfast pastries, breads, cookies… and, of course, cheesecake. Stop in at either location in West Seattle or Capitol Hill for a bite of Classic Cheesecake or Chocolate Mocha Cheesecake. The former is baked on a traditional graham crust and features a seasonal fruit glaze on top of a creamy center, while the former marries dark chocolate and freshly brewed coffee over a chocolate crumb base.

This Punjabi-style Indian eatery is serving up all your favorites at its lunch buffet and traditional dinner, including… cheesecake? When you’ve got a hankering for Indian cuisine, you’re likely dreaming of naan and tender tandoori-cooked meats. But once you try Ras Malai, it’ll be a shoo-in for your cravings list. Homemade paneer and sweet clotted cream are infused with cardamom for a rich and undeniably creamy dessert that is often thought of as “cheesecake without the crust.” Ras Malai is just one of India Gate’s delectable offerings made from scratch and ready to be devoured at the Bellevue location.

The Confectional | Multiple locations

For a bakery whose motto encourages customers to “confess your love for cheesecake,” you’d probably expect The Confectional’s creations to be otherworldly… and you’d be correct in that assumption. The Confectional offers a dreamy lineup of mini cheesecakes and “cheesecake dips” at its flagship store in Pike Place Market and second location at Seattle Center’s Armory. Selections rotate daily and revolve around eight core cheesecake flavors: Caramel, Lemon, White Chocolate, Mochaccino, Peanut Butter & Chocolate, Quadruple Chocolate, Raspberry White Chocolate, Seattle's New York-Style, and Triple Berry. Each variation uses cage-free eggs and crusts made from Spanish biscuits. If you’re looking to leave with a fun and delicious novelty, try any of The Confectional’s 5 cheesecake dips (pictured above). Each small cheesecake bite is dipped in chocolate and comes atop a wooden spoon, perfect for gifts or for snacking, and features specialty flavors such as Red Velvet or classics such as Lemon White Chocolate.
