Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake’s First Quebec Chapter Opens Today — And More Intel

Following a couple months of uncertainty as to its precise opening date, Eater has received word from Uncle Tetsu Cheesecake representatives that its Montreal location will be open today as of 9 a.m. The city can now boast access to the pastries that were heretofore only available in Canada via Toronto and Vancouver. The reputation of the bakery’s a strong one, as it’s been known to generate long lines of hungry fans at its Ontario locations. Why the excitement? Japanese cheesecake is known to contain much less sugar and dairy than the North American variety, and has no base of crushed cookies or graham crackers, resulting in a particularly fluffy dessert. While the opening day has been confirmed, the hours haven’t. As for the menu, they’re generally similar across all of Uncle Tetsu’s locations, so expect items honey madeleines, twice-baked rusk, and the signature cake.
