The decor + the location + wonderful staff + the fantastic cheesecake all make this an absolute gem in Halifax. We go here often for a bite to eat whenever the craving for cheesecake strikes, and among their wide variety of flavors, there are usually multiple choices for those who eat gluten-free, as well. The pieces are a generous size, and there are times when we just split one between two people. Two thumbs up!

Quirky is the word that jumped to my mind when I first stepped into Sweet Hereafter. Formerly a spa, the ambiance has changed dramatically. Dark colours, with a velvet-like feel. Chandeliers from the ceiling. Big padded wall, which looks like a headboard. But all the parts work.

Walking up to the display case, you are greeted by one of the staff. Each of the many cheesecakes on display are fresh, having been made often that day. With wild varieties, such as Rolo or Kit-Kat, or the more typical cherry or White Chocolate Raspberry, you are virtually guaranteed to find a flavour that will suit your taste. Have dietary issues? They make gluten-free, vegan, and others. If you let them know ahead of time, the chef may very well make one that will fit your needs. Make no mistake, this is real cheesecake. You eat a piece, and it fills you. I also suggest you have a cup of the locally-roasted coffee with it to add another dimension to the taste.

The staff are very friendly, and will make you feel like a regular - even if it's your first time. Live music is common some evenings.

Overall, if you go to Sweet Hereafter, you won't be disappointed. You'll be back again and again.

Cheesecake is one of my favourite desserts and after having eaten it around the world Sweet Hereafter takes the cake (excuse the bad pun). To date I've tried over twenty flavours and although I have favourites none of them were ever disappointing. Although I will say that if you love white chocolate you have to try the white chocolate raspberry if you get the chance. Besides the amazing cheesecake I love the funky welcoming décor and the truly nice and great service you receive.

*Side note: If you are like me and have friends with eating restrictions this is a fabulous restaurant because they offer gluten-free and vegan options.

Stopped in on the reccomendation of a friend and was not dissapointed. Shared two slices of cheesecake - cranberry/white chocolate and O'henry. Both were very good and the coffee matched nicely. Will recommend and will return.
