I think watching the Big Bang Theory contributed to my family's excitement for the cheesecake factory, but there are so many options for great cheesecake it's hard not to like it. Known for their very large menu and great desserts. The cheesecake factory is a great stop in Edina, (which is just a short hop from the MOA). The outdoor seating is great in the summer and there is something for everyone on their menu. Warning, the pieces of cheesecake are probably a sharable size. We all ordered our own and no one was able to finish theirs, but then again no one ever complained about having leftovers.
