Eat a Prince-themed cheesecake during Breads Bakery's Cheesecake May

There have been plenty of tributes to the late, great Purple One all across New York City, but this might be the most delicious one yet—Breads Bakery is launching a purple-hued baked-blueberry cheesecake this week in honor of Prince, who passed away last month. The tributing treat ($8 slice, $37 ten-inch cake) is part of the bakery's Cheesecake May, which sees the debut of a new cheesecake each week throughout the month. 

Starting Monday, May 16, Breads will offer a cheesecake version of their famed babka ($14.95)—yes, that means cheesecake babka, people. And the week after that, the Union Square shop will offer not only a classic cheesecake ($8 slice, $37 ten-inch cake) starting May 23, but will also be serving all of the month's cheesecake flavors, including the inaugural strawberry cheesecake, available as a $34 full cake or a $8 single serving layered inside a mason jar. Sweet!
