Verseau Bistro by Say Cheese…cake RVA
If you’ve ever ordered cheesecake at Latitude’s in Midlothian or O’Toole’s Restaurant & Pub in Forest Hill, you’ve tried the confections of Say Cheese…cake!
Owner Cheryl Wittman opened the business almost three years ago to fulfill a lifelong dream and found success selling mini and full-size cheesecakes cakes in myriad flavors online and to restaurants out of a commissary kitchen in Stony Point Fashion Park. In January, she converted the kitchen into Verseau Bistro (9200 Stony Point Parkway #180), a full cafe that’s open to the public.
The menu features the decadent cheesecakes Say Cheese…cake! Is known for, along with savory cheesecake bouchées, which are creamy like cheesecake, but feature herbs, spices, cheesecakes and meats in the filling and are baked in puff pastry. Build-your-own charcuterie boards feature popular house made whipped feta in monthly changing flavors, sourdough bread from Europa Crust, meats, nuts and jams. There’s also beer, wine and espresso to wash it all down.
