Eli’s Cheesecake, Chicago’s favorite dessert, is proud to announce its partnership with Starbucks Coffee Company and the rollout of four delicious desserts in all Starbucks Chicago area stores. The Eli’s introduction begins with Eli’s Original Plain Cheesecake (the cake that started it all!) and Eli’s Cappuccino Brownie Made with Starbuck’s Verona Coffee. On July 14th, Starbucks will add two additional Eli’s desserts…Chocolate Turtle Pie and Tira Mi Su Cheesecake, a delightful twist on this popular Italian classic. As part of Starbucks initiative to expand their lunchtime, afternoon and evening dessert selection, Eli’s desserts will be available daily after 11:00 a.m.

According to Marc Schulman, Eli’s President, “Starbucks and Eli’s are companies deeply committed to quality and community. We are delighted with this partnership and the opportunity to serve Chicago the best desserts with the best coffee.”

Eli’s Cheesecake was first developed in 1980 when famous restaurateur, Eli M. Schulman, decided to create a signature dessert for his Chicago restaurant, Eli’s the Place for Steak. Eli’s Cheesecake was so rich and creamy that his customers proclaimed it “Chicago’s finest.” It’s grown from a local treasure to one of the country’s largest specialty cheesecake bakeries.
