We recently ate at a Cheesecake factory, and before we sat down, the manager came over and explained to us that many of their food items are safe, that they do not use peanut oils, that their servers and chefs were very familiar with the allergy, and that they are aware and cautious.

He advised us to stay away from any of the Asian items and stated that there were certain cheesecakes that were nut free. He couldn't say if they were peanut safe, so we did not risk it. We were too stuffed anyway for dessert.

OHHH, if only I had a cheesecake factory around! Lucky you, only I think instead of not having room for dessert, I would skip dinner and just have dessert!!!

There is a separate cheesecake factory allergen menu but only online. I have never seen anything tagged in the actual restaurant but maybe things have changed. I have been there are number of times and surprisingly the wait staff and even the manager were very knowledgeable when it came down to allergies. If you have a peanut allergy or a nut allergy you can almost work around any item on the menu (almost). I have never had any problems myself but just make sure you ask before you order and always confirm when you receive your food as well.

I have searched for a cheescake factory nut allergy menu online and originally did not find anything allergy specific. Finally I did a lot of digging on the cheesecake factory website and they do have a great section built out just for allergies. If you go to https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/allergy you can see that they have developed a great allergen menu tool. You can choose from the following allergens:

Eggs
Fish
Gluten
Milk
Peanuts
Shellfish
Soy
Tree Nuts
Wheat

When you choose one or more, their menu will pop up. If the items has a green light next to it, the menu item does not contain the allergen that you chose. A red light says it does. So if you have a peanut allergy or a nut allergy this is a great place to start.

I have always used this guide: https://www.thecheesecakefactory.com/allergy. You can select your allergy from a check box and it is quite helpful.

How timely. I heard we're getting one in the Burlington Mall! Good to know they're allergy-aware.

They make some really groovy omlets, and their cheesecake with hot fudge is divine. But their portions are so big, frankly I can never eat dessert when I go there.

For the New Yorkers here, S&S Cheesecake is peanut and tree nut free. The factory is close to my home, and I've been there and spoken with the staff. They make only two products- plain cheesecake and chocolate mousse cake.My daughter has eaten it with no problem several times, and it is out of this world. It's kosher, too.

We go there a lot and my son always gets a grilled cheese and fries and has never had any problems. The manager always comes out and they also always bring A.J. a plate of orange slices and bananas to tide him over until his food gets there. They call it the "baby plate." He has also eaten the sourdough bread brought to the table without any problems.

Nava,
Would you mind contacting me off-board to tell me where S&S is? I think I know, but I'm not sure if I'm confusing it with another great cheesecake place.
Thanks a bunch!
Amy
