Boasting an array of baked-in-house cheesecakes, Small Victory Bakery is the perfect spot to enjoy this indulgent offering. While the bakery’s blueberry and pistachio cheesecakes are reliably good, the salted caramel is to die for – it’s wonderfully creamy, has a crumbling crust and is topped with a sticky caramel sauce. Whole cakes as well as individual servings are offered.
As the name suggests this Granville Street bakehouse offers patrons a varied selection of drool-worthy cheesecakes. Light in texture and rich in taste, the original cheesecake topped with B.C. strawberries is one of the bakery’s most popular slices. Cheesecake purists should dig into the crustless cheesecake, which promises to be the lightest, smoothest and creamiest cheesecake you’ll ever taste.
