    They are well known for their cheese cake but I actually don't even eat it from them. They have great food; shrimp parmesean, tuna melts, and one of the best breakfasts in Brooklyn (best cheese eggs)

    This cheesecake really lives up to the expectations and is soft and creamy as heaven. Its sea food is quite good too. Enjoy a complimentary slice showing your New York Pass card on meals over U$S 10.-

    This location is approximately 256% cooler than the one at Times Square. The Pastrami Reuben is really nice. The cheesecake is perfect. Just fcking perfect.

    Loved the cheesecake filling, but wasn't a huge fan of the sponge cake crust. Chocolate mouse geese cake as amaze balls though!! Definitely rich enough to share!! :)

    The "Something Different," a self-proclaimed sandwich of brisket served between 2 perfectly seasoned potato pancakes with jus, sour cream, and applesauce on the side, is spectacular.

    First time I heard of Junior's during an episode of MTV's Making the Band and Diddy made the contestants walk across the BK bridge to get him a piece of cheesecake. Now I know it's worth it!

    if you are a college student in the area, it's a PERFECT place to go before getting dropped off by parents. Otherwise, make sure to go there during Brooklyn Restaurant Week for a massive feast for $25

    For the love for all that is good, get the cheesecake. Tom Robbins (not the motivational guy) dedicated a chapter to this cheesecake in one of his novels. Yes, it is that good..

    Original cheesecake is the best I've ever had. If you order an egg cream, get vanilla as chocolate is too sweet and strawberry has chunks of not so flavorful strawberry in it.

    Even if you're by yourself, post up at the bar, order a slice of cheesecake (obviously) and one of their extremely strong drinks (something with Grenadine maybe?). Strike up a conversation. Repeat.

    Roasted by White Coffee, Junior's Brooklyn Blend satisfies. It calls to mind La Colombe Corsica coffee & rich Porto Rico roasts. JBB arabica beans are Central & South American. Cups are bottomless.

    The best cheesecakes in all of New York City. My favorites are the Devils Food, the raspberry and the classic.

    My favorite cake is the *chocolate mousse cheesecake* combining a layer of cheesecake on the bottom with a top layer of light creamy chocolate mousse and then covered in a chocolate coating.

    Try the soup and half sandwich lunch special. The matzo ball soup and corn beef ssndwich are both good. The original cheesecake may please others, but not me. Heavy, gummy, and flavorless.
