La Cheesecake was founded by Tommy Julig in 1985 at the age of 18. The young Whitestone native has since grown his business into a tremendously popular and beloved spot for New Yorkers and people traveling from all over the U.S. to pick up some sweet treats for family, friends or to simply satisfy their own cravings! Over the course of almost 25 years Tommy has expanded his menu as well as his continuously broadening clientele. If you have not tried a cheesecake from La Cheesecake, you have not had cheesecake at all! Come in and take your pick of our wide array of cheesecakes, cookies, pastries, pies and rich, moist layer cakes!
