About Junior's Cheesecakes

What makes Junior's Cheesecake unique?

Junior's Cheesecake is a pure New York style cream cheese cake. We use only the finest of ingredients including Philadelphia® cream cheese, heavy cream, fresh eggs, sugar and vanilla. Most of our regular cheesecakes have a signature sponge cake bottom-because it's a cake, not a pie! But seriously, what makes them unique are these high quality ingredients and the fact that we still bake them in small batches of only 88 at a time, hand mixing the ingredients just like you would at home with the same recipe for that last 55 years.

Does Junior's guarantee customer's satisfaction?

YES. All of our products come with our 100% satisfaction guarantee. We are very confident your cake will arrive in perfect condition and be delicious right down to the last bite.

Where are Junior's Cheesecakes made?

All of our cakes are made directly for you at our bakery in Burlington, New Jersey. Our bakery retains the highest standards of safety and cleanliness.

Is Junior’s Cheesecake kosher?

All of Junior’s mail order cheesecakes are certified kosher dairy under the supervision of Kof-K.  Your mail order cheesecake will arrive sealed in our signature packaging with all of the proper labeling indicating the product is kosher and dairy with the Kof-K mark.  The cakes sold in our restaurants are not certified kosher. 

How many servings are there in a cheesecake?

There are 10-12 servings in our regular size cheesecakes. There are 16 servings in our 10" Cheesecake Samplers.  'Lil Fellas minis samplers serve 18.

Handling Instructions

How will my cheesecake arrive?

All of our cheesecakes are shipped frozen in specially designed packaging to safely transport our products. Cakes will ship with gel-paks or dry ice depending on the style of cake chosen. As long as the cake is cool to the touch, it is perfect for eating even if there is no dry ice remaining in the package.

For cakes shipped with dry ice, be sure not handle the remaining dry ice with bare hands. These cakes will be shipped in a Junior's signature orange and white striped box.

What are the handling instructions? Or, what do I do with my cheesecake once it is delivered?

Our cheesecakes should be removed from their packaging upon arrival. For cakes shipped with gel-paks, dispose of the Styrofoam and place the cake in the Junior's signature striped box. At this point, you may consume, refrigerate, or refreeze. Our cakes will last up to seven days in the refrigerator or up to six months in the freezer. Whichever you choose, your Junior's cake will taste as fresh as if you were enjoying it in one of our restaurants. Cakes can be refrozen.

How should I serve my Junior's Cheesecake?

Cheesecakes should be served at room temperature. If frozen, leave the cake overnight in the refrigerator and defrost on the counter 3 hours before serving. Otherwise, defrost on the counter 4-5hrs before serving. Yes, it really takes that long.

A few of our fruit items and "cakes within a cake" items are best slightly cool. These include the Strawberry Cheesecake and Lemon Coconut Cheesecake.

What is the best way in which to cut a whole cheesecake?

Use a knife that has been dipped in hot water to cut the cheesecake. A chef's knife or cake knife works best. Wipe the knife with a damp towel in between each slice to ensure a smooth cut. Watch for fast hands trying to grab the cut slices! Enjoy!

When will I receive my order?

We try to ship your order as soon as possible. Please note that we do not ship the same day orders are placed. Orders received by 11:59 pm will ship on the next shipping day. We ship Monday-Thursday. Standard shipping is a 2-day service available for shipments sent Monday-Wednesday for delivery Wednesday-Friday. 1-day rates are also available. Alternatively, you can choose a date up to 60 days in advance using our order calendar. 

We recommend that you check if your recipient will be available to take receipt of the cake on the delivery datei.e., not on vacation or out-of-town. This is especially important during the holidays. Also, be sure you have the correct address. We do not take responsibility for cakes that are delivered to incorrect addresses or for cakes delivered to recipients that are out of town.

Although everyone loves a surprise, it might be best to tell your recipient to expect the package to ensure its safe delivery and handling.

Will I receive an order confirmation and tracking information?

After you place your order, you will receive an email confirmation with your order number. When the cake is shipped, you will receive an email containing a UPS tracking number. You can use this information to track when your package is shipped and to inquire when it has arrived.
