Although the name suggests a sweets shop, The Cheesecake Factory actually offers a good range of delicious food and meals, and of course, sweets and cheesecakes. The menu is rich and varied, offering you burgers, pizza, sandwiches, pasta, salads, in addition to specialties, brunch and kids meals. This restaurant is one of the best and most loved in Abu Dhabi, and you can enjoy a perfect meal there with your friends at the weekend.



The story of this restaurant begins by a dream of a young lady, Evelyn Overton, who found a recipe in the local newspaper that inspired her to start making her own Cheesecake. Her recipe was good enough to impress everyone around, so she decided to open a small Cheesecake shop. Eventually, however,  she gave up her dream of owning her own business in order to raise her two small children, David and Renee.

However, even with two children, Evelyn did not give up her dream. She moved her baking equipment to a kitchen in her basement and continued to supply cakes to several of the best restaurants in town while raising her family.

Later in 1972, Evelyn and her husband moved to Los Angeles, and with the last of their savings, they opened The Cheesecake Factory Bakery and began selling Evelyn’s cheesecakes to restaurants throughout Los Angeles. Soon, with hard work and determination, the small business grew to a modest size, and Evelyn was soon baking more than 20 varieties of cheesecakes and other desserts.


It was David, Evelyn’s son, who opened the first  The Cheesecake Factory restaurant in Beverly Hills, CA. The restaurant that started to showcase his mother’s selection of cheesecakes, achieved an immediate success, and today there are nearly 200 The Cheesecake Factory restaurants around the world.
