If there's a polar opposite to the caloric overdose represented by Cheesecake Factory, this Lakewood shop should be a prime candidate. Founded as a counter in the back of a Greek restaurant, the bakery is a full-fledged operation in its own storefront -- and still family owned. Fresh ingredients and the aroma emanating from the bakery have made this business so popular that there is now a wholesale arm serving sweets across Texas and beyond. Whether purchased at this location or from a far-flung seller, the cakes -- from the traditional New York to the Key Lime Margarita and dulce de leche cheesecakes to gourmet Italian rum and white chocolate macadamia cakes -- pies and desserts have been successfully sating many a sweet tooth since 1995.
