Smile And Say ‘Cheesecake’ in Downtown Joliet

Cheesecake By James

81 N Chicago Street, Joliet, IL


Located directly on Old US Rt 66 in Joliet’s downtown ‘Oldtown’ across from the Rialto Theatre, you’ll find Cheesecakes by James. Whether it’s ordering an entire cake or just dropping in for one slice and a coffee, you’ll be amazed at the variety and flavors this place has to offer. 

Try the ‘Caramel Pecan Pumpkin’ made with fresh roasted pumpkin from raw or their ever-popular Oreo cheesecake. No matter what you select, you know it’s going to be delicious.

Order a full cake and you’ll be part of the 2022 ‘Cheese-Cake-A-Thon’ with a goal of 2,000 confectionaries sold with some of the proceeds going to charity. It’s no wonder that the locals have named it ‘The Best Cheesecake in The World.’

What a great way to say ‘I Love You’ for Valentine’s Day. Call, visit or check them out online at
