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".

Bartlett’s Candy House

211 W. Railroad Ave. inside The Shoppes at Banbury Fair, Bartlett, IL. Our mission is to help create the greatest place on earth. Not here in this little shop, but at your home. For the kids to be having the greatest time of their lives eating delicious candy, popcorn, sno-cones and more, and running themselves ragged in one of our inflatables. For you and your friends and family to be sitting under the shade of a tent on a beautiful day, with the ability to have great conversation, uninterrupted, and to just relax for a few hours knowing the kids are well-occupied and safe. As we grow, we’ll continue to add more of the things that will help enhance this experience. Our mission is to provide an environment where you and your loved ones are having fun, laughing, reconnecting with each other, relaxing, and pausing for a moment to look around and say, “Right now, this is the greatest place on earth.”
