Helen's Fabulous Cheesecake on Union St. Carroll Gnds

Has anyone been to this great place that has the most fantastic cheesecake & scones that I have ever had before ?
This place is PHENONEMAL ! She makes over 12 different cheesecakes ( the pistachio is out-of-this-world ) and some scones I have never seen ( Jalepeno , chorizo & corn ?!!! ) & the sour cherry w/ buttermilk are outrageous .
So as my mouth waters over her scones I see an amazing garden out back with tables and an arched path that is so tranquil - it is like an oasis of relaxation away from the world.
Has anyone had the soup & quiche here ? I saw it but I was too full of cheesecake & scones to eat another bite . I'll definitely make it a priority on my next visit .
So, anyone please tell me if there is anything more to this "jewel" that I may have missed ?
