Hugely popular cheesecake hotspot coming to Square One in Mississauga


The Food District in Square One has already welcomed hordes of hungry diners in search of on-trend food to the shopping centre, and it looks like it's about to add a truly beloved (and globally successful) chain to its already commendable offerings.

Uncle Tetsu, the Japanese cheesecake chain that's generated around-the-block lineups in Toronto, is about to open a pop-up shop (and a permanent one shortly after) in The Food District. 

The pop-up shop, which is slated to open in December to coincide with The Food District’s Shop The District holiday shop, is taking over the space once occupied by Secret Lands Farm.

Square One says Secret Lands Farm, which was located across from the newly-opened MidiCi Neapolitan pizza restaurant, is closing permanently. 

"We've had a lot of requests from people to come to Mississauga, and so we're finally coming," says Roberto Settembrini, president of Uncle Tetsu Ontario Inc. 

Settembrini says Uncle Tetsu will operate a pop-up in the Shop the District space over the course of the holiday season. 

After Christmas, the site will become home to a permanent Uncle Testu shop. 

The permanent shop is expected to open early in 2020. 

The pop-up shop will offer the beloved brand's original Japanese cheesecake all week-long and will offer a limited supply of matcha-based cheesecakes on Mondays and chocolate cheesecakes on Thursdays. 

We'll provide more new opening details as they become available.
