Al’s Cafe and Creamery

Step inside Al’s historical Victorian style building and experience the warm and inviting atmosphere that has proudly been part of the Downtown Elgin community for more than three decades. Enjoy globally inspired American cuisine in a family friendly setting.

You would not expect your soup choice to be Brazil de Cacao or Vegetable Creole at the local malt shop, but then again Al’s isn’t your run-of-the-mill eatery. Al’s Café provides its customers with comfort food alongside more innovative dishes that are sure to delight your palate. Thanks to the creative touch of Chef Tony Jamin, each dish is made from scratch, and tastes better than even Mom’s homemade dinners.

Alexander’s Cafe

Alexander's was named after our great hero, Alexander The Great, from Macedonia, Northern Greece, where we are from.

Alexander's serves breakfast, lunch and dinner and features fresh fish and home cooked meals made fresh on the premises by our chef. All of our soups, sauces, gravies and dressing our made fresh on premise. We also feature a wide range of desserts and ice cream creations. We have a full service bar for cocktails.

Some of our specialties include our fantastic baby back ribs that fall off the bone, charbroiled steaks & juicy prime rib that melt in your mouth, & a wide variety of glorious burgers. Other foods from our kitchen include appetizers (try the flaming "saganaki" cheese), fresh salads, sandwiches, Pizza, pastas, fresh fish, and fun foods "for our little friends".
