About Junior's

Founded by Harry Rosen in 1950, Junior's landmark restaurant is known as the home of New York's best cheesecake. From the very first day Junior's opened its doors in 1950 on the corner of DeKalb and Flatbush Avenue Extension in Brooklyn, the Rosen family has worked hand in hand to build the restaurant into one of the most popular eateries in the city. For decades residents of Brooklyn (and other New Yorkers) have come here to eat, laugh, argue, and kibitz over cheesecake. In the 1950s an entire generation came of age at Junior's.

Since the opening, Junior's has been serving the "World's Most Fabulous Cheesecake." Harry Rosen perfected his recipe for the perfect New York–style cheesecake with a master baker named Eigel Peterson. After much trial and error, they had it – a delicious layer of buttery light sponge cake with the perfect cheesecake – creamy but not heavy, light without falling apart, and of course that rich, creamy flavor. To this day, the third generation of Rosens still uses the same recipe.

In 1995, Junior's began selling its fabulous cheesecakes on QVC. Many of the selections are created just for QVC – you can't even get them in our restaurant!

Today, loyal customers still come from all over and all walks of life – Supreme Court justices, famous mayors, Hall of Fame athletes, authors, singers, and movie stars – each with his or her favorite Junior's cheesecake. In fact it's as true today as it was 50 years ago: You haven't really lived until you've had cheesecake from Junior's.


All of Junior's cakes and cheesecakes will stay fresh in your freezer for up to 6 months. Unused portions may be stored in the refrigerator up to 7 days. Place the cake back in the Junior's box and wrap the box in plastic wrap for storage in the refrigerator or freezer. Cakes may be refrozen.

Cheesecakes are best served at room temperature. Leave frozen cake on counter 3–4 hours prior to serving, or defrost overnight in refrigerator and leave on counter 2 hours.

How to Cut Cheesecake

Cheesecakes are best served at room temperature. Use a warm knife to cut the cheesecake. A chef's knife or cake knife works best. Wipe the knife with a damp towel in between each slice to ensure a smooth cut. Watch for fast hands trying to grab the cut slices! Enjoy! 

Dry Ice Info

This item will arrive within 2 days of shipping. Each package is shipped in Dry Ice, ensuring the contents will arrive cold and ready for storage in your freezer.

What is Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is another term for solid carbon dioxide. You know that carbon dioxide ("CO2") is the gas we exhale every time we breathe. When CO2 gas is compressed, it changes to CO2 solid.

Why do we use Dry Ice?

Dry Ice is very cold. In fact, its surface temperature is approximately -110°F, much colder than regular ice, which has a surface temperature of 32°F. Because Dry Ice is so cold, it is an excellent refrigerant to keep perishable food products cool until they arrive to you, the customer.

Why wasn't any Dry Ice remaining when my package arrived?

Dry Ice has special properties that are much different than regular ice. This is due to the chemical differences between water and CO2. Ice will melt to liquid and then evaporate as a gas. Dry Ice skips the liquid phase and changes from a solid directly to a gas. This change is called "sublimation." The dry ice used in the food products we offer usually lasts between 24 to 36 hours. Since we ship our products in 2 days, it is common for little or no dry ice to remain by the time you receive your package. However, your food will still be cold - ready to be put right in your freezer!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious cheesecake This cheesecake was delicious. However, I did not like the sponge cake bottom. The best cheesecake I have eaten in a long time. You won't be disappointed at all. 07-04-16
Rated 5 out of 5 by THE ABSOLUTE BEST!!!! There is NO OTHER cheesecake. Junior's is the absolute best. It is dense but creamy, just sweet enough without being cloying and the cake "crust" is so far superior to the graham cracker crust found on so many commercial cheesecakes. OK, you can waste your money on the rest or you can spend a little more and get the BEST!!! 06-28-16

Rated 5 out of 5 by The Best Ever! I love this cheesecake. It reminds me of cheesecake I had over 40 years ago in New Jersey. I can't get any thing near that living in Florida. So happy, I will order again and again. 12-28-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Amazing! Well worth the money. I am both a major cheesecake lover and budget aware. This cheesecake was amazing! Very thick, and rich and creamy and very much worth the price. It was our Christmas dessert and my family was full of mmms and ahs. I am so glad I went for the best. Thank you, QVC! 12-27-15
