My apple cheescakes from Goldbelly, regardless of individual shop they came from, have always come on time, been exactly as described, were packaged perfectly and securely, and were I guess reasonably priced (not knowing actually what cheescakes that feed 8-10 people should cost on average)

the cheesecake was very good. I loved that it came already sliced, that was a big help!! it helped me not to cut uneven pieces.

The chocolate chip cheese cake that was gifted could not have been timed any better. My friends are avid cheese cake people and expressed to me that this cheese cake was even better than the pumpkin cheese cake which they truly love. It was delivered on time and this birthday gift exceeded their expectations. Thank you.

Big hit! Plus the FedEx driver, Travis, went the extra mile and called me when having difficulty delivering to the address and made sure my daughter received her birthday cake! Beyond the call of duty ❤️

I am happy to say everything about this experience went well. I had the strawberry cheesecake sent to my son for his birthday, since he couldn't spend the holidays with us because of covid. He shared it with his roommates and he told me it was a hit! He told me that it arrived on time and was packaged well. Yay! I will definitely be ordering from Goldbelly again!

The original cheesecake is pure heaven! I like the shortbread crust and the fact that the cheesecake is light and very creamy vs thick and almost crumbly like others. Eli’s, in my opinions is in a class all it’s own and is far superior to both Junior’s and The Cheesecake Factory.
