I took an image of these delicious mini cheesecakes at a Portuguese bakery in Toronto. It was a ritual that every time I visited my brother we would go to this bakery to have an espresso with some Portuguese custard tarts which are much harder to find in San Diego so I had to take advantage of my visit
