After going to the Have Yourself a Gothic Little Christmas craft fair, the D&D ladies went to Sweet Hereafter Cheesecakery for a treat. It was absolutely the perfect place to go after such an event and if I lived in Halifax, it would be my second home.
Located around the corner from this mural at 6148 Quinpool Road, they are across the street from The Superstore.
Even though it is dark yet warm inside, there is a ton of natural light and the perfect place to people-watch along Quinpool.
My heart sang when I saw they had Pop Shoppe Pop! Oh the parties I threw as a young kid with all that pop that ended up on our white living room rug. This is the only pop I like.
I think it was Emily who had referred to this spot as having a boudoir feel and she was right. I want my house to look like this!
A black chandelier?! Oh yes, I was home!

Damn straight. And I had never seen so many absolutely original cheesecakes in one place my whole life. They also have gluten free and vegan options to choose from. This place is for every cheesecake lover out there. I knew immediately I had to bring Reg… SOON! He is a cheesecake fiend.
When doing the whole modern gothic style you risk going cold but the silver pinecone candle holders took me right back to nature and were so beautiful and festive.
They had to brew some decaf for me and man, was it ever strong! I had to add a ton of cream and sugar to it but no headaches so it was the real deal. Just, wow, strong! Love it.
Alissa had said Sweet Hereafter had shared a photo of their Rolo Cheesecake that day on their Facebook page. I could not stop thinking about it. I think Reg is turning me into a chocolate convert. Chocolate and caramel?! That is fast becoming my perfect combo.
Keep in mind this is an artisan cheesecake and is $8 a slice. Is it worth? Absolutely. The only thing missing was Reg sharing it with me. This was way too much to eat on my own but I did it. Damn it.
Almost everyone else got the Autumn Apple Cheesecake and we were all in heaven. Everyone was thrilled with the mega treats we were indulging in.
Emily and Sarah decided to share to pieces so they split the two for them so it was like they were eating one piece. So thoughtful!
The cheesecake maker (and genius) who happened to be there that day said he rarely uses a graham cracker crust which just reeled me in all the more. I hate graham cracker crusts so now I know that no matter what I order when I go back with Reg, I will not have to worry about having one of those crusts.
We had such a nice and relaxing time there and even though we stayed quite a while, we never felt pressured to leave. In fact I got the feeling that hanging out is exactly what they want at Sweet Hereafter Cheesecakery.
I overheard that their busiest time is Saturday nights and considering most places close around 5 of 6 pm in downtown Halifax, I know next time I am downtown on a Saturday night to just to head over to Quinpool.
I can not wait to go back, I felt so at home at Sweet Hereafter Cheesecakery. I got slaughtered for my post about the Gothic Fair but at least I have this happy memories of friends, cheesecake and black chandeliers from that particular day to make up for it.
I give this cheesecakery five out of five wooden spoons.

How deliciously decadent! And Pop Shoppe pop too! Talk about a blast from the past.
