Eli's Cheesecake Company

Chicago's Legendary Cheesecake

Eli M. Schulman is a legend in Chicago. Over his 50-year career, he built a reputation not only for outstanding food, but also for his generous hospitality. In fact, a sign hung in the window of his first restaurant had read: “If you are hungry and have no money we will feed you for free.” Today, Eli’s continues to serve the Chicago community, one cheesecake at a time—or rather, if you’re around for the yearly Taste of Chicago festival, one 1,500-pound (!) cheesecake at a time. Each Eli’s cheesecake is slow baked with the finest local ingredients for the best flavor and texture, then topped with hand-decorated designs. Turning out over 20,000 daily, Eli’s is not only a local favorite, but a national one as well.

We're not the only ones who love them!

Eli’s Cheesecake has been featured in the New York Times, Chicago Tribune, Bon Appetit, Chicago Sun Times, Cook’s, Goop and more.
