Our Dessert Bucket List: 5 Cheesecakes in Adelaide You Have to Try

There are some things that seem to just belong together. Bacon and eggs. Peas and carrots. Cheese and cake. Here are our picks of the best places to get a slice of heaven (by which we mean cheesecake) in the fine city of Adelaide.

Handsome and The Duchess


Known for top-notch coffee, gorgeous sandwiches and, of course… the Stack (ask them about it), Handsome and The Duchess has some pretty incredible baked goods on offer too. As well as the brioche and croissants, you’ll definitely want to check out the Basil and Strawberry Cheesecake Tartlets. These tasty little bundles of joy are an awesome twist on a classic dessert, and we guarantee they’ll have you coming back for more. Basil on cheesecake has never been so right!

“O.M.G! Have you heard of this place? Have you ever been? If you haven’t get on it – if you haven’t been then go! If you like amazing coffee and breakfast/brunch – GO!” – xbabydollx

Cheeky Cheesecakes


If you need a special treat whipped up for any occasion (whether it’s a birthday or a wedding or just another tough day that only cheesecake can fix), Cheeky Cheesecakes is always happy to deliver. Annette and the team are true masters of the baking arts, and everything they serve is top-quality. However, we do have an extra special sweet spot for their Tim Tam Cheesecake. Sweet and chocolatey and smooth as silk, it’s the stuff delicious dreams are made of!

When customers have been raving about your cakes for over 25 years, you know you’ve got to be doing something right. And no matter if you’re ordering for a special event or just swinging by for a quick slice and a cup of joe, the awesome staff at Muratti will see you thoroughly satisfied. We’d highly recommend the Blueberry Kuchen. Made to a traditional recipe, the sweet vanilla cheesecake is perfectly complemented by the berry burst. Try to have just one slice – we dare you!

“Still a Prospect icon. A great place for a special occasion cake or just drop in for a good coffee and a sweet treat.” – 4chillis




Bringing together some of the city’s most talented bakers, patissiers and chocolatiers, Cocolat is a haven of sweetness nestled away in Modbury. This place offers nothing but pure artisan pleasure, and you certainly won’t want to miss the special Salted Caramel Cheesecake. With its crunchy base and layers of creamy cheesecake and salted caramel, it’ll make you see the goodness in all things.

Astonish Patisserie


Beneath the cute red-and-white exterior of Astonish beats the heart of a mighty baking lion. It’s a cosy little spot adorned with bookcases and plush armchairs; the kind of place you could spend hours simply chilling out and enjoying a cuppa and a slice of cake. And although there’s a wide range to choose from, you can’t go past the Hazelnut & Apricot New York Cheesecake (with cornflakes and candied peanuts for added crunch, no less). Lush and decadent, it’s one you won’t want to share.

Don’t forget to share your Astonish Experience on True Local!

Sigh… so much cheesecake, so little tummy space. Still, we reckon you’ll get through them all eventually. Afterwards, why not drop them a quick review on True Local?
