Delicious deserts have arrived in North Tonawanda! 

This past week ‘Just Say Cheesecake’ held a ribbon cutting ceremony at their new location at 106 Webster Street and will offer soups, salads, sandwiches and a wide selection of cheesecakes for all to enjoy. 

“Our cheesecakes are delicious,” said Dan Quigley, Co-Owner, “but we also have a peanut butter pie, mini chocolate cakes and people are really enjoying our scones. I had no idea people in this area liked scones so much.”

Quigley and Jim Fingerlow have another cheesecake store in Amherst and say they wanted to open here because Jim is from the area.

“I wanted to come here because this is home for me,” said Fingerlow.

Thanks to a $35,000 grant from the Lumber City Development Corporation, the owners were able to turn this once old laundry repair shop into a stylish restaurant. It is complete with tables, chairs, kitchen equipment and upscale lighting fixtures. For local officials it is a welcome addition to the neighborhood.

“This is just going to add to what has been happening in our downtown section,” said Art Pappas, Mayor of North Tonawanda. “It is just getting better and better. Look what it has done for this one neighborhood.”

Officials and residents have been anxiously awaiting the opening of the store. For over a year the owners have been working to opening it. They admit it was not an easy task.

“We had to do everything to this location; it was completely gutted,” said Fingerlow.

The store’s owners held a soft opening a few weeks ago and say people from all over have been stopping in.

“The response has been incredible,” said Fingerlow. “People are coming in and really enjoying what we are doing.”

Not only helping to beautify the area but many say it will help to fill a much-needed gap in the area.

“We definitely need some lunch places around here and not just places that serve burgers and wings,” said Laura Bernsohn, Planning and Development Specialist at Lumber City Development Corp.

Just say cheesecake is open Monday through Thursday from 9am to 9pm and on Friday and Saturday from 9am to 10pm. Lunch is served from 11am to 3pm Monday through Friday.
