Congratulations to the Town of Collierville for winning Parade Magazine's America's Best Main Street (2014) contest! If you haven't yet had a chance to peruse Main Street, please do yourself a favor and stop by soon.
A month or two ago Wade and I enjoyed a wonderful date night. While our dinner choice was a staple (sushi for me, hibachi for him at Osaka), our dessert choice was a bit out of the ordinary. Welcome one and all to City Hall Cheesecake!
Located on the east side of Collierville's Historic Town Square, this charming dessert spot boasts rustic brick walls, original floors/ceilings, and about the best dang cheesecake this side of Kirby.
We walked up to the counter, which was staffed by two of the nicest young ladies I've ever met. My husband and I were obvious newbies, but they were very helpful and happily brought out not one but two cheesecakes from the fridge so we could see what they looked like in person.
After ordering said cheesecake and settling into our seats, Wade and I flirted with each other while the young ladies got our slices plated up :) First up: Wade's selection of turtle cheesecake.
Oh my goodness y'all. This was a killer slice of cheesecake. While a bit heavier and not quite as decadently-smooth as Cheesecake Corner, it was still soooo yummy.
My selection, key lime, wasn't *quite* as amazing as Wade's. While the taste was good and the plating beautiful, it was a bit heavy for my liking. I also found myself a bit remorseful for using so many PointsPoints toward the "key lime" taste which, I feel, is better in its traditional pie form. I barely finished half.
Overall, City Hall Cheesecake is a quality dessert spot deserving of a place on the Square. While I might *slightly* knock them on the fact that they use plastic cutlery instead of silverware, their prices are great and they're open quite late (8:00 or 9:00) compared to other establishments on the Square (usually 6:00 at the latest).
Bottom line: Would I eat there again? Happily :)
