Zanze's Cheesecake

Pin It Now!
Zanze's Cheesecake is one of those SF hidden gems that even some native SFers don't know about!  Its run by a friendly couple that lovingly puts out some of the best tasting cheesecake in the Bay Area.

Surprisingly, Zanze's doesn't have a website so here's the simple cheesecake menu above.

With every cheesecake order a small tutorial is given on how to properly cut the cheesecake with fishing line (which is included!).

Upon opening the box, the cheesecakes are notably less solid looking.  No graham cracker crust for this cheesecake, but instead graham cracker crumbs are sprinkled on the top.  Even more noticable is the texture of the cheesecake.  Not heavy or dense as a typical New York style cheesecake, this literally melts in your mouth with each bite.  The flavor is amazing with tiny hints of lemon.  Absolutely delicious and probably some of the best cheesecake I've ever tasted, but I did miss the dense firmness of what I associate cheesecake with.

"If you haven't tried the cheesecake before you need to try the original" was advised by the owners.  Little did they know I'm all about trying TWO cheesecakes!  Although the blueberry cheesecake is pretty much blueberry on top of the original, the blueberries were plump and juicy, not the usual artificial sweet berry topping normally found on fruit topped cheesecakes.  Hard to say which one is better, just get both!
