Coffee for Anytime of the Day

Coffee is the nectar of the gods. If I can’t have my macchiato in the morning, I can’t function. Coffee isn’t just go-go juice, it’s also something to build great conversation over. However, not everyone loves coffee. No problem! If your taste buds prefer teas, juice, smoothies, and hot cocoas you have options from some of these local coffee shops:


Domani Cafe -109 E Highland Avenue
Elgin, IL.
We suggest the Chai Tea Latte (not spicy like some chai teas).

D’licious Crepes and Roti– 225 S Main St,
Bartlett, IL
Treat yo’self to a Gelato Smoothie!

Elgin Books and Coffee– 66 S. Grove Avenue
Elgin, IL
They have a killer mocha!

Blue Box Cafe– 176 E. Chicago Street
Elgin, IL
Don’t like coffee? That’s alright! Blue Box has the best tea in town

Robert and Carol’s Bartlett Coffee
120 E. Railroad Avenue
Bartlett, IL
*Open only from 5:00 AM – 9:00 AM for the Metra Station for commuters.

They have great iced coffee!

Alexander’s Cafe
1725 N. State Street
Elgin, IL
The Caramel Macchiato is my favorite

Arabica Cafe 
59 Douglas Ave,
Elgin, IL 60120
I love their smoothies!

The Uncommon Palate 
316 N. River St.
East Dundee, IL
They have crazy decadent hot cocoas

No matter what you have going on, early morning work out, groceries, heading to work, or just running errands you can get through your day. Grab your favorite at your usual place or switch it up and try something new!

Show me the love and use #ElginIL with your best selfie and coffee choice!
