Double D’s Cheesecake & Coffee House: A Dessert Lover’s Dream
Some desserts look so decadent that you don’t know whether to take a picture or take a bite. With Double D’s ultra-creamy, Philadelphia-style cheesecakes, you’ll want to do both.
From the buttery crust to the heavenly whipped base, every layer of Double Ds’ signature desserts is made from scratch with the freshest of ingredients. It’s a crucial part of the secret family recipe that’s been honoured since the sister duo of Darlene Landino and Dale Chenier started the company back in 1998.
With more than 50 unique cheesecake flavours, including Chocolate Amaretto, Passionfruit, Pistachio, Pear Brûlée and Saskatoon Berry (made with locally grown Saskatoons!), there’s something for even the pickiest of palettes.
Even if cheesecake ain’t your thing (as if), the homemade caramel cinnamon buns are out of this world and worth a visit all on their own. For those with dietary restrictions, you won’t miss out – there are also plenty of low-sugar and gluten-free alternatives.
Can’t pick just one? Not too worry! Based on popular demand, Double D’s created their bestselling Variety Pack, which features 14 popular flavours in one 9-inch cake. It’s the perfect choice for birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations. Or, if you’re anything like us, the ultimate cheat weekend.
Even if you’re craving their iconic cheesecake but aren’t in the mood for an old-fashioned slice, they have you covered. Thanks to ingenious creations like Cheesecake Sandwiches, perfectly circular Mini Cheesecakes, decadent petit fours and the ever-popular Cheesecake in a Cone, indulging has never been easier.
But best of all, Double D’s isn’t just a takeout spot. Located directly behind St. Vital Centre, the shop has a cozy and welcoming vibe that compels you to get comfortable and stay awhile. With free WiFi and an impressive selection of locally-roasted coffee drinks, from simple lattes to Double D originals like the Sugar Daddy Iced Capp, it’s easy to feel right at home with a laptop, a book or just the mouth-watering goodies in front of you.
And while any Double D’s experience is a great experience, it’s best enjoyed with the We Heart Winnipeg membership card: Buy any beverage and receive a second beverage of equal or lesser value for half price (excluding bottles), or enjoy $5 off any regular 9-inch cheesecake.
