Yes, diamonds are formed under pressure, but so are classic dishes. Harriet's popular Sweet Potato Cheesecake was developed in 1983, as she struggled to provide for her small family while also showing that a Black businesswoman specializing in cheesecakes could be successful. Harriet's became a neighborhood icon as a result of the combination, which eventually grew to encompass 65 varieties.


Ms. Harriet writes on her website that fresh ingredients are vital in the preparation of our cheesecakes. Adding strawberries into our cream cheese mixture is an art, all of our flavors are not just toppings, I hand mix every cheesecake and changed my recipe to minimize the sugar level compared to other bakeries to ensure my diabetic son can still enjoy a sweet treat from time to time.
