Bakery goodies 101 or the Incredible Cheesecake Company


What do you buy once inside the bakery?


Popular Bakery Products are: Biscuits /Cookies; Cakes; Bread/Buns/Burgers/Rusk; Wafer Biscuits; Pizza; Dough Nuts; Bagels; Waffles; Muffins; Cupcakes; Pies; Swiss rolls; Puff Pastries and thus the top 14 goodies as listed by Bakery Industry (a blog on and so I find this a good yard stick to measure the bakeries I’ll be working for the next few weeks.


When you are diabetic, like me, you’ll lean toward oatmeal cookies or wheat bread, if you dare enter a bakery at all.  When you are blessed with a high metabolism and good health likeNancy, you lean toward cheesecake.  Now here’s a question:


Is Cheesecake a Pie Or Cake?


Cheesecake is a dessert of a topping made of soft, fresh cheese on a base made from biscuit, pastry or sponge. It comes under the heading of pie, because cakes rise, cheesecake does not.  Then why do so many bakeries sell Cheesecake Pies?  The answer is simple, ‘Who cares.  Just eat and enjoy.’


The first bakery from my list of shops to review is The Incredible Cheesecake Co. at 3161 Adams San Diego;

(  It’s a small, unassuming shop waiting to thrill you cheesecake lovers.


I bought an oatmeal cookie, a slice of 18 Karat Cheesecake, a slice of Cookies & Cream, and one Deluxe Brownie… My total was about $10.00 and the slices were generous.  The manager was friendly and knowledgeable. I felt I’d made a great deal given Marie Calendar sells small cheesecakes for $30.00 per with a total weight about the same as the pleasures I’d just purchased from ICC.


When you go to ICC you’ll be in NormalHeights.  Not far from here, for you DayTrippers you’ll find a couple of very pleasant parks but if you’d like something more to do for the miles you spend getting here, I suggest you can try a nice, inexpensive play.  Not far away is a pleasant little playhouse on El Cajon Blvd. in North Park.  There you can see a play for around $15.00 per (!).   And when compared to most theatres charging about $50.00 per well such a deal!Normal Heights, North Park
