National Cheesecake Day is July 30, but Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro, 6172 Bluebonnet Blvd., is kicking off its celebration a little early.
From July 28-30, order one cheesecake and get another free. Just in time for the celebration, Copeland's is bringing back its popular blueberry cheesecake crumble, a homemade Creole cheesecake topped with blueberry cobbler and pecan crust. The restaurant purchases its berries from a local produce company that sources from Louisiana farmers.
The buy-one, get-one-free offer is available for dine-in at Copeland’s Cheesecake Bistro or to-go at copelandscheesecakebistro.com.
