Domani Café

Menu: Coffee, espresso, sandwiches, snacks and paninis

Daily Herald Review:

There's plenty of energy at the Domani Cafe in Elgin, and it isn't coming from the coffee or espresso machine.

It emanates from the owner, Leo Urdaneta, who left his job as social studies teacher at Kimball Middle School in Elgin Area School District U-46 in 2009 to pursue his dream.

"My first dream was to own a home," said Urdaneta, who lives in a house on Elgin's west side with his wife, Migdalia and two daughters, Miranda, 7, and Bianca, 6. "My second dream was to have my own shop and business. I love coffee. The first thing I have in the morning is a good cup of coffee."
