If you haven’t had the chance of trying out the Cheesecake Factory (yes, where Penny works in The Big Bang Theory), you don’t have to go to the United States anymore! There is a restaurant very similar here, in Montreal: Elixor.
They have the same dictionary-sized menu with all the different kinds of foods: pastas, meats, fish, salads, etc. And yes, all those AMAZING cheesecakes!
Ok, Elixor doesn’t have as many items as the Cheesecake Factory, but it’s still way more than your average restaurant.
The quality of food is good!
The prices vary between 10-30$ for a main dish, but the dishes are very, VERY big!
I had the Bora Bora Tuna Salad and was very satisfied with it. There was so much on my plate though, I couldn’t finish it… However, I didn’t have the chance to try their cakes yet. I can’t wait to go back to try them though!
It’s a great place to have birthday suppers/lunches, Mother’s day or Easter brunches, big group dinners, etc. My cousin had her bridal shower there and that’s how I know the place.
There are two locations near/in Montreal:
- 3237 boulevard Des Sources, Dollard-des-Ormeaux
- 1795 Pierre-Péladeau, Centropolis, Laval
The menu is on their website:
Check it out! And happy cheesecake-ing!
