Good news, dessert lovers - Canada's first Cheesecake Factory is on track to open at Yorkdale Mall in Toronto this fall after months of waiting.
Construction of the 10,400-square-foot restaurant is nearing completion and has occupied the space formerly taken by a Milestone's restaurant at the northwest end of the mall. It will feature imported limestone floors, custom wood columns, painted murals and modern lighting that are consistent with the interior design of sister chains in the U.S.
The Yorkdale location will be a full-service restaurant that offers the same popular menu of "super foods, pizzas, glamburger® & sandwiches, pastas, steaks, chops, fish & seafood, Sunday brunch, all handmade, in-house with fresh ingredients." It will also have over 50 signature cheesecakes and desserts available for purchase.
Signs have been put up around the parking lot of the mall calling for job applicants to the restaurant. Those interested can text "Cake Yorkdale" to 555888 for more information.
Other notable brands opening at Yorkdale this fall include Sporting Life and Restoration Warehouse, which will also take spots in the west wing of the mall.
