Everything Cheesecake in Martinsburg will satisfy your sweet tooth.
Businesses that dish out baked goods are, well … sweet. And Everything Cheesecake in Martinsburg is about as sweet as they come. In 2014, Gerrardstown native Teresa Gibbons left her job as a Martinsburg City Police officer and, with her husband, Erin, opened a gourmet cheesecake bakery.
Since then, Everything Cheesecake has become the area’s go-to sweet spot. On any given day, this bakery offers six to eight different flavors, from a roster of 70 cheesecakes including best sellers Reese’s Peanut Butter, Classic New York–style, and Salted Caramel Toffee Crunch. The extremely popular Pecan Pie Cheesecake has a whole pecan pie packed inside it. Weighing in at seven pounds, it is topped with salted caramel sauce and pecans.
All the cheesecakes are made from scratch and sold by the slice. Whole cheesecakes can be ordered with three days’ advance notice. Prices range from $4.50 to $6.50 a slice to $35 to $65 for a whole cheesecake. You can get a slice or two to go, or sit down with a cup of Black Dog Coffee. And in January 2018, Gibbons is also adding a full-service tearoom, the only one in the area.
Gibbons has added some pastries and pepperoni rolls to the menu, but she wasn’t interested in opening a run-of-the-mill bakery. “I love doing things that are unique,” she says. 324 West Stephen Street, Martinsburg, 304.350.1567, @everythingcheesecake on Facebook
