Enjoy lunch at Eli’s Cheesecake Café, the perfect destination to enjoy homemade soup, freshly prepared artisan sandwich or gourmet salad. Menu changes daily. Lunch served in our cafe Monday-Saturday, 11am-2pm except Thursdays when a grilled lunch is prepared outdoors from 11am-1pm (through October, weather permitting).

Of course, it wouldn’t be complete without a slice of the rich and famous Eli’s Cheesecake! Dine in our vaulted ceiling coffeehouse atmosphere or on our outdoor patio during pleasant weather. Eli’s Cheesecake Café was voted Chicago’s #1 restaurant for dessert…AOL Cityguide.


Take time to shop in our amazing store where the selection of cheesecakes and desserts are endless. We also have a fresh bake shop with scratch recipe muffins, loaf cakes, crème puffs, big cookies, holiday treats, macaroons, bagel chips, tarts, cakes and cheesecakes for you to enjoy here in our café over a cup of coffee, cappuccino, or espresso (or take-out!). We make sure everything we bake deserves to be called “Eli’s”!
