We are lucky to live within walking distance. I love the gluten-free cheesecake. It seems somehow extra creamy to me. The desserts and pastries are spot on and you can't go wrong with the wedding cookies. My son surprises me with those from time to time as many of his evenings out end up eating cheesecake or coffee. My youngest... More

While 18$ dollars for 2 cups of coffee and 2 slices of cheesecake was what I expected the terrible attitude, rudeness and unfriendly atmosphere was not expected at all from your staff. One young lady with blue hair acted like it was a bother to even take my order and that she had better things to be doing besides working.... More

If you love cheesecake, you are going to LOVE to drop by Alex's. We have never been disappointed. The selection of cheesecakes and other sweets is almost mind boggling. Our grown children live away and when we go visit the one request is to stop by Cheesecake by Alex and bring one to them, A Joy to see their faces... More

This was my first visit but not my last. I tried the regular cheesecake and added strawberries. It has a hint of lemon flavor and taste amazing! The strawberries they used are fresh and has that delicious real strawberry juice not the fake red stuff. Not long after that the Cheesecake Factory opened up and I tried their regular cheesecake...

Great local business with excellent desserts as well as coffee, tea etc. Chocolate raspberry cheese cake is my favorite! A great place to stop for a break as you are exploring all that downtown Greensboro has to offer.

My wife loves this place and it is especially convienct now that The Cheesecake Factory is on Friendly and ALWAYS booked and over priced. Their original cheesecake has a little too much lime flavor for me but I love their hot chocolate and other treats by the register. My wife loves all kinds of cheesecakes there!

Had coffee and cheese cake and it was wonderful. Had to wait in line a bit, but so worth it! Many different dessert offerings so if this doesn't satisfy your sweet tooth I dont know what will!

Cheesecakes by Alex is a family favorite. We have been going for years. It has expanded to include more seating. Forget the Cheesecake factory. Alex has better cheesecakes and coffee. He also has local ice cream for the little tiles who don't fancy cheesecake. Alex has the best flavors from traditional NY style to Key Lime, chocolate raspberry, etc. You... More

We have picked up cheesecake and other desserts from here several times. One of the best that we have ever found. Even better than some cheesecake places we have gone to in New York! Worth a special trip to go pick some up or eat there!

Thank macclement
