I love visiting Elijah's in the summer, when I can sit outside (the shop on Vallette) and enjoy my iced Americano while my kids have their smoothies. (Although not made with actual fruit, they are made with fruit puree and NO corn syrup!) My husband's favorite menu item is the frozen hot chocolate, which is served with chocolate whip cream! Elijah's offers free wi-fi to everyone, which I see Elmhurst College kids using on a regular basis. Both the locations offer an area for small children, complete with table games and books. My folks visit weekly for the steel cut oatmeal, which they swear is the best they've ever had. I love the house blend coffee, the lattes and Americanos. My favorite winter treat is a Dirty Chai, which is not on the menu, but was recommended by a barista. It's a chai latte with a few shots of espresso - and it is AMAZING! I've tried it at three other coffee houses in Elmhurst (one chain, two independent) and they didn't come close to perfecting it the way Elijah's has! Be sure to grab a punch card when you're there - 11 punches and the 12th drink is free!
