Georgia’s old location succumbed to a fire in December 2011.
Fans of Georgia’s Cafe & Bakery have been hoping for two years that the neighborhood spot would reopen, and they’re about to get their wish.
Real estate broker David Chkheidze said that he helped Georgia’s owner Georgia Stamoulis rent a new spot on Amsterdam Avenue between 89th and 90th streets. That’s just a block from its former location at 89th and Broadway, which suffered serious damage in a fire about two years ago, forcing the cafe to close for good. The old spot is now occupied by restaurant Cibo E Vino.

Georgia’s was a local favorite, with a wide selection of comfort foods like quiche and roasted chicken, along with pastries and drinks. They also used to have live music once a week.
Stamoulis is aiming to open by May 1, and hopefully before that, Chkheidze says.
