The Upper Crust Café has been a Garneau staple for more than 20 years, offering delicious and varied daily lunch and dinner specials, amazing homemade potato salad (and other salads), frozen pre-made meals (superb lasagna), catering and delectable desserts. Among some of the best brownies and cakes this city has to offer, is the world’s best cheesecake: Chocolate Chunk. Thick and creamy, this traditional baked cheesecake has scrumptious chunks of chocolate all along the bottom and it is perfection.

Sabor Divino

A high end, downtown restaurant, Sabor is well-known for their seafood and risotto (both are raved about frequently). An excellent choice for lunch or dinner fare, they also make a spectacularly smooth cheesecake. Available topped with either port cherries or passion fruit coulis, this deliciously velvety cake is complimented by both toppings, but the port cherries are my favourite – tart and sweet
