Welcome to Geja's Cafe

Chicago's Premier Fondue Restaurant

For over 56 years, fondue dining at Geja's Café has been a favorite indulgence for Chicagoans as well as out-of-towners. It's a perfect way to kindle romance, celebrate a special occasion or simply join family and friends for a fun and unforgettable dining experience.

The Venue

Geja's Café's atmosphere has come a long way from the early years of 1965-1971 in Old Town to its present look in Lincoln Park. Geja's Café has long been heralded as Chicago's Most Romantic Restaurant. In 2015, Geja's Café was named America's Most Romantic Restaurant by a USA Today's reader poll. Some of the ingredients that have contributed to our atmosphere being so unique is our candle-lit dining room which feels like a wine cellar that is filled with live classical and Flamenco guitar music.

Reservations required.
