I'll agree with others that this is a slightly hard to find place. However it is well worth the visit. There are several great reviews in the cheesecake and I can confirm they are true. Yummy, thick, and delicious slices of cheesecake await you here. What others fail to mention is how good the coffee is. A cappuccino with a foam to die for with a slice of your favorite cheesecake is a must here. If you're in the area stop on by. Please note, they don't hold back on the cheesecake so you can take half of your slice home with no problem.

Lily’s is the best hard to find place to get cheesecake! From 15-501 turn north into Mt. Moriah and then the first left onto new hope commons. Go all the way down and take a left at the last street. Go down there, turn to your left and BOOM! You’re at Lily’s. Great cheesecake and baked goods at fantastic prices. I used to go to a certain factory that made cheesecake and it was okay but overpriced. Lily’s cheesecake is phenomenal, tasting like it was homemade by my mom. Or your mom if she makes good cheesecake. Please do yourself a favor and check this place out!

Lily’s is AMAZING! The staff are super friendly, their baked goods are fresh and never disappoint, and they have cute indoor and outdoor seating. Definitely worth the visit. Heads up- it’s a little difficult to find but it’s right below ride cycle studio!

It's really hard to notice this place from the road but I stopped by one day to check it out. The cheesecake is really good, very thick and heavy. They also serve coffee and tea although the seating leaves much to be desired. Because this place was so new when I visited there was much of the store that looked unfinished. That being said, the employees are very nice and even offered a small discount because it was my first time being there.

Food: delicious. The biggest and richest piece of cheesecake you can get without buying the whole pie. Staff: so friendly! I had the privilege of going to the grand opening, and not only was everyone super efficient, they were pleasant and helpful. Atmosphere: beautiful chic decor, indoor and outdoor seating.

Always greeted by friendly staff!! Amazing deserts too! The cheesecake here is absolutely some of the best I have ever had! Let them know if you need a whole cake and they are willing to help you customize an amazing cake!

This place is hard to find, but it is worth it (follow their pink little yard signs)! The staff is super friendly. Loved their chocolate tart and blueberry cheesecake. We will definitely go back for more.

We got a piece of blueberry and Carrot cake cheesecake! They were absolutely amazing. Good seating outside to enjoy the weather.

We had the strawberry and raspberry cheesecake, it was wonderful. A sweet lightness that was a perfect balance of the rich cheesecake. 👍

Cheesecake Factory is in no comparison to Lily's cheesecake. This cheesecake is superb! I love the texture, it's firm. If you are a cheesecake lover, you will know exactly what I'm talking about. If you try it, you won't regret it.

I love the cheesecakes that they have. Please don't stop advertising, ignore the negative comment left below. If I hadn't seen those signs I never would of found you! Owner is very friendly and the sizes of the cakes are very generous. I will continue to come back.

It's a little hard to find (Google instructions tell you to stop on the 15 501!!!) But it's located in the same building as pomegranate kitchen, next to Namu on that service road. The shop is run by a very friendly guy and is neat and clean. I tried the red velvet cheesecake and it was AMAZING. Rich and sweet and firm, but not overwhelming in any way. The portions are HUGE and I ended up considering it my dinner haha Definitely coming back here, and the owner said he is putting in WiFi soon so this will be an awesome study spot
