The beauty of cheesecake is that you can have it in any flavour imaginable. From red velvet brownie cheesecake to Star Bar cheesecake, the options are endless. And in Bruntsfield, you can have all your cheesecake dreams come true. Artisan Cheesecakes is a wee modest shop but mighty in cheesecake and brownie power.
You can get different flavours pretty much every time you come in, and even make it into a cheesecake shake. For the almighty cheesecake shakes, they just take a full slice and put it into a blender. So, Artisan Cheesecakes mean business and they aren’t amateurs when it comes to cheesecake.
The family owned business is based in Livingston, baking over 400 flavours of cheesecakes that can be made to order. The Livingston spot opened in 2013 and after receiving an overwhelmingly positive response, the owners decided to open in Edinburgh as well. With the ethos ‘use great produce to make great food’, cheesecake lovers are guaranteed to be swept off their feet.
The Edinburgh shop also offers exceptional brownies, tray bakes, bagels, ice cream, and, of course, coffee. This week (September 2) they have red velvet, snickers and Ferrero Rocher cheesecakes for visitors to delightfully destroy. And if you’re feeling adventurous, make into a Crazy Shake.
There is a small seating area within the shop, but with Bruntsfield Links being just across the road, taking the treats out with you and enjoying some time outside is the best shout. Long live cheesecake, all 400 flavours of it!
