About Us

Gina's Teardrop Cafe, home to happiness and family, since 2013.

After 30 years in the restaurant business serving happy patrons, Gina decided it's time to open her own restaurant. In 2013, Gina's Teardrop Cafe was born. Gina's vision was to create a family friendly atmosphere with homestyle cooking that brings people back for more. Having lived in New Lenox for over twenty-five years, Gina has a strong commitment to the community and enjoys giving back. The restaurant specializes in farm fresh eggs, jumbo stacks of pancakes, delicious skillets, freshly made salads, sandwichs, and homemade soups. What will most likely shock new customers is our large portions and our friendly staff. We take pride in keeping our customers happy and have no problem customizing any dish to meet your needs.
