Cheesecakes by Alex serves a selection of fair-trade, organic coffee and espresso from the local roasters as well as bottled drinks. Alex started his journey of making cheesecakes for his family and friends until the recipes were perfected. You can tell the dedication to perfecting the flavors as this is some of the best cheesecake I have personally eaten. They have another location in Greensboro, which is the original store, if you visit over there too. You can follow them on Facebook and Instagram @cheesecakesbyalex_winston.
