Evanston Games & Cafe is your friendly neighborhood game store with a culinary twist, offering sandwiches, salads, and baked goods prepared at local Evanston institution, The Celtic Knot. Products ranging from your favorite board games to role-playing guidebooks to Magic: the Gathering are available for purchase. If you can't find what you're looking for, we're always happy to take your order and give you a call or email as soon as it comes in.

On any given day at Evanston Games & Cafe, you can find members of our community finding new favorites in the free demo game library, congregating after school, or squeezing in a quick game of Magic during a lunch break. Our coffee, free wifi, and comfy seating combine for the perfect co-working space as well!
