For nearly half a century, Geja's Cafe has kept the embers of European communal dining aglow with its versatile menu of fondue flights. In the glimmer of the candlelit dining room, diners kindle sweet and meaty morsels over simmering pots of gruyère cheese, soybean oil, and belgian chocolate. Live classical and flamenco guitar music accompanies eaters as they peruse a wine list of more than 50 wines by the glass from local, international, and interplanetary wineries.
With its delicious food, romantic atmosphere . . . Geja's is a go-to place for those looking to splurge and dine with someone special.Kimber Solana, Centerstage
