We are a company with a strong Jewish heritage and take pride in the multiculturalism here at RIB. As many of our team members are celebrating Shavuot – a Jewish festival where it is traditional to eat cheesecake – we thought we would look at all the best places to enjoy this indulgent treat in London.
Honey & Co. – Fitzrovia
Fitzrovia locals will all know about this café. Their unbaked cheesecake on a kadaif base with honey and feta is a local favourite. Located on Warren Street, it is the ideal indulgent treat with their famous cooked cardamom black coffee.
Rinkoff Bakery – Stepney
Serving traditional Jewish cheesecake with sultanas in huge slabs of 1.5kg, this Stepney bakery is a favourite amongst locals. Their Heimasha Cheesecake is a firm favourite and the massive size makes it perfect for sharing!
The Cheese Bar – Camden

Their delicious an indulgent cheesecake with blackberry coulis is a firm favourite of ours and we are certain you will love it too!
