My kids go to school with a relative of the Szotski family and on his birthday he shared mini cheesecakes with the class instead of the usual cupcakes. I heard about those cheesecakes for days so I had to try them out for myself. Szotski’s Cheesecakes, located at 2600 W. Nine Mile Road, is definitely worth a visit and I completely agree with the kids’ recommendation.
Szotski’s specializes in mini cheesecakes and has the largest selection of flavors in Pensacola with over 200 varieties available. They are baked in small batches so Szotski’s can focus on quality and provide such a large assortment of flavors. After giving them a taste test I wasn’t surprised to learn that they’re also award winning cheesecakes as they’ve won the Best of the Bay Award for three years running, since 2014. Apparently I was just late to the party!
You’ll find bistro seating available at the bakery if you’d like a quick snack or you can grab a dozen to take to the office or home for dessert. Order 200 for a wedding reception or a party and your guests will rave about them.
I brought home a dozen assorted mini cheesecakes to share with the family and everyone immediately went after their favorites. For the purpose of this review I was forced to try more than my fair share of the flavors but I’m happy to report the results. All the usual suspects were nabbed right away and reported to be delicious – cherry, strawberry and blueberry. My dad loved the lemon, mom went for the key lime and I thought there was going to be a fight over the cookies ‘n cream and the banana split with brownie. I saved the bushwacker for myself and can’t wait to try it again but my absolute favorite was the maple walnut with bacon.
You can check out what’s available in the display case at Szotski’s today on their website or just drop by and see for yourself, you’re sure to find more than a few of your favorite flavors including all the traditional varieties as well as a few specialty flavors. Single mini cheesecakes are $2.50 each, grab six for $14 or a dozen for $25. Additional discounts are available for larger orders of 10 dozen or more.
