Best Desert: Cheesecake Factory
Despite its expansion to nearly 170 locations, Cheesecake Factory hasn’t skipped a beat in delicate desserts. With over thirty cheesecake desserts, including low carb options, it’s easy to see how the Cheesecake Factory sliced through the dessert category. The dessert menu isn’t limited to cheesecakes but includes cakes, ice creams and creamy milkshakes. Enjoy the Redondo Harbor while sampling a number of sweets; it never hurts to order more than one. -J.R.
