Life saver – I was on my way home with a birthday cake that I purchased somewhere else and I had the brake for a dog crossing the road. Good news was that I never hit the dog. Bad news my cake bit the dust. I saw Le Cheesecake and stopped in to see if the could repair my cake. As it was my husbands favorite. They said no problem and 15 minutes later my cake was all fixed up. I was so thankful. I asked how much and they said don't worry about it. Wow what great people. So I bought a cheesecake while I was there and was glad I did. I have had alot of cheesecakes and this was definately in my top three. Have been back since and never been let down.
Never Again – I have been a St. Petersburg resident for over 10 years and can honestly say I have never taken the time to personally write a review online, but thought by sharing my recent experience with Le Cheesecake I could save someone else the same pain. I went into their store on 12/15 around 2:30 PM with the attention of ordering a birthday cake for my mother. I was met by two ladies at the counter and a full dose of attitude. I asked what I thought was a pretty common question when ordering a cake (what flavors do you have available) and their response was what do you want and that the flavors are on the website. Well I am not on the website, I am in your store. I received the same response for filling and icing options. So pretty much I am inside a cake store ordering blindly. I should have known at that point just to walk out. But I made the mistake of completing my order for a chocolate cake with Bavarian cream filling and chocolate icing. Very simple writing on the cake “Happy Birthday Mom.” I scheduled for it to be picked up on Saturday at 2:30 as the party was that evening. I even called later that afternoon after I had left to confirm the order/time. So here is where the story gets good! My wife goes to pick up the cake on Saturday afternoon and the lady at the counter (different from the ladies I had ordered from) rudely said there was no chocolate cake ordered from any customer for today. So, my wife clearly in-between an uncomfortable situation calls me to confirm that I had ordered the cake. I walked her through my experience above and she told the lady behind the counter who proceeded to call the owner (which is who I ordered the cake from personally). The owner played completely dumb and said she never had taken an order for a chocolate cake. So pretty much they called their customer a liar and that we were crazy to be in their store to pickup a cake. Long story short, I think if you search the internet and read other customer reviews you will find we are not alone in this horrible customer experience. Hopefully by taking the time to write this review we will save someone else from a ruined party. I couldn’t imagine trusting a wedding with these people as there is no telling what cake or story you would receive!
DO NOT USE FOR YOUR WEDDING – IF YOU WANT A BEAUTIFUL CAKE EXACTLY WHAT YOU WANT AND A DECENT SIZE THESE PEOPLE ARE NOT THE PEOPLE TO DO IT. THEY CARED MORE ABOUT TALKING ABOUT RANDOM THINGS THAN MY CAKE. THE CAKE WAS NOT WHAT I ASKED FOR AND IT WAS THE SMALLEST CAKE EVER!! HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!! EVERYONE ASKED WHATS WRONG WITH YOUR CAKE?? WE TRIED TO CALL AND TELL THEM AND THEY WOULDN'T TAKE OUR CALLS!! THERE COMMUNICATION IS HORRIBLE!!! DO NOT USE!!
Desserts, Sandwiches, And Coffee O MY – I thought I had a good cuban sandwich at other places around Tampa but this place has the best. I have found other sandwiches I like there but once your hooked on that cuban it is tough. Tons of great desserts and Frozen Hot chocolate. I thought they only had cheesecake but I was suprised to see everything else they had. Coffee, dessert, sandwiches and theres a guy there that talks up a storm.
More than just cheesecake – After going to Le Cheesecake for years, Me and my wife were surprised to see a coffee house and boars head deli inside as well. We said why not and were very happy with what we recieved. Joffreys coffe and cheesecake yum. Try it is out is recommendation. They even said they are opening a new store at the Tyrone Mall and franchises. We are saving our money for this.
