Ottawa is getting a brand new spot to get cheesecake. The famous bakery Uncle Tetsu will be opening in Ottawa!
Uncle Testu is famous for their fluffy cheesecake, which is lighter and creamier than a New York style cheesecake. In addition to their cheesecake, they also sell a variety of other delicious treats including cheese tarts, honey madeleines, and soft-baked cookies.
The original bakery started in Fukuoka, Japan which began selling the signature cheesecake but they have been rapidly expanding opening locations in Taipei, China, Singapore, Malaysia, Philippines, Cambodia and Canada. Currently, Uncle Tetsu already has several locations in Canada including in Toronto and Montreal, but this will be the first store in Ottawa.
In Ottawa, Uncle Testu will be opening on 280 Elgin Street. Recently a sign has been spotted in the closed Boko Bakery stating Uncle Testu will be opening soon. The new location is fantastic news for Ottawa residents as last year two beloved Japanese bakeries Boko Bakery and Uji Cafe closed.
