The long wait is over, Brentwood and East Contra Costa County folks!


Heavenly Cheesecakes & More, located at the Shops at Fairview on Balfour Road corner Fairview Avenue, is now open! The much-awaited sweet spot in Brentwood quietly opened last Saturday, May 19, 2012 to friends, family, and fans who have been patiently waiting for this day.


We at Everything Brentwood had a sneak peek and gave in to our sweet tooth's desire... and we were impressed! Shellie Hirsch and Maria Martinek, the owners of this wonderful place graciously showed us around, gave us a little taste of their heavenly cheesecake creations, and chatted with us about how they started and what they have planned for the store.


Shellie and Maria have been friends for a long time, starting out as neighbors in 1997. They both loved to cook and they frequently shared recipes. Maria came from an Italian family with recipes that have been passed on from generation to generation. Shellie is the duo's "scientist" in the kitchen who loves creating everything from scratch.


They discovered early on in their friendship a common disdain for cheesecakes, or at least, what was available at that time. Shellie's husband loved cheesecake so one day she decided to create it her way. After several attempts from this kitchen scientist, she actually made one that both she and Maria liked! That started it all. And now, years later, they have over 40 cheesecake recipes, perfected through the years, which both of them love. And they continue to create more!


Heavenly Cheesecakes & More creations include Caramel Pecan Cheesecake, Pineapple Side-Up Cheesecake, Triple Chocolate Cherry Cheesecake, Red Velvet Cheesecake, Zinfully Delicious Cheesecake, Steph's Kahlua Raspberry, Caramel Macchiato, Cappuccino Cheesecake with Chocolate Sauce, and over 30 other yummy delights.


Among the 40+ cheesecake recipes are gluten-free ones for those on this diet. And they have more than just cheesecakes - they have delicious cupcakes and other wonderful sweet treats, created by Kianna Gendotti of Kiki's Cupcakery. Definitely the place to satisfy your sweet cravings!


Heavenly Cheesecakes & More is open Tuesday to Thursday from 12:00 noon to 7:00 p.m., Fridays from 12:00 noon to 9:00 p.m., Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m., and closed on Sundays and Mondays. Happy Hour is from 5:00 to 6:00 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays - buy 1 cupcake and get a mini cheesecake for free, or buy a handful cheesecake and get a mini cupcake.
