I'm partial to More than Mocha. It's in the library (books, magazines, wifi), and they'll make anything you can come up with. I recommend the Mocha Bianca!
Maddie June 20, 2012 at 02:45 PM

More Than Mocha definitely! Very friendly and they will make whatever your heart desires. Not to mention it's in the library where you can take advantage of all the amazing services they have to offer.

Elijah's is a wonderful coffee shop. The people that work in both locations are friendly and knowledgable about the menus items. They are willing to offer suggestions and help with special orders. Very comfortable, home like atmosphere. Nice to support a local small town business.

Cafe Amano. Their coffe is great, and you have not lived until you have tried one of Sam's Chai Teas (Hot or Cold).

Best Cafe Mocha in town at Elijahs, Sharon Stancel

Cafe Amano! Nothing beats a latte from Sam and a cranberry muffin.
John Iwaszkiewicz June 20, 2012 at 05:31 PM
Cafe Amano, where the coffee is great, Sam's service is superb, and you can spend your time laughing and pointing at people driving the wrong way across the railroad tracks.

Elijahs is my favorite! As a matter of fact I haven't even been to some of the other coffee shops. When you've found the best why go anywhere else?! The atmosphere is fantastic, the staff is always friendly. The owners are friendly and treet their customers like guests in their homes. I love stopping in there in the morning and picking up a coffee and bowl of fantastic oatmeal! Love Love Love Elijahs!

More Than Mocha! I love that I can take it wherever I want in the library and I can get whatever I want, even if it seems a bit odd. The people who work there are so nice. Last week I got an Irish Creme iced coffee and it was delicious!

<3 More Than Mocha at the library! Tons of options for vegans and they're super friendly
Pete Yarema June 21, 2012 at 02:59 PM
When my wife and I want a great bowl of steel cut oatmeal and a great cup of coffee, it's Elijah's. When we want a tasty ice tea, it is still Elijah's. Try their pomegranate green tea with a touch of lemonade ---- it's GRRREEEAAAAT!

More than Mocha is the best!
Jim June 25, 2012 at 05:32 PM
No question in my mind, More Than Mocha. Drinks are made with tradition and made to your request. My favorites are vanilla latte, hot chocolate (it is like getting a hug w every cup), chocolate bananna cream freeze (no shakes can come close to it).
Molly June 25, 2012 at 08:05 PM
More Than Mocha-hands down!
Brittany June 26, 2012 at 01:26 PM
More than Mocha, obviously!
CJ June 26, 2012 at 02:05 PM
More than Mocha is the best! The staff is so friendly and are willing to make any drink that you would like. They're all experienced baristas and love having conversations with me when I am waiting for my drinks. The More than Mocha drinks are by far the best in all of Elmhurst. There are so many flavored to choose from and the baked goods are always fresh and excellent. I love More than Mocha!

Pilot Pete's Coffee and Treats!
Ken June 29, 2012 at 11:13 PM
More than Mocha. The prices are fair, the cookies and coffee delicious, and the service fantastic!
Alex June 30, 2012 at 12:27 AM
Elijah's coffee shop is my favorite shop in town. They have something for everyone and their homemade chocolate whip cream is awesome. They let you stay longer than an hour, unlike the library coffee shop (more the mocha, I think) that only lets you stay at a table for 1 hour. The employees are long-term, which tells you something about the place.
Diane Wells June 30, 2012 at 03:25 AM
Sierra Beans was there for years and you couldn't get in the place it was sooo busy
Carly July 01, 2012 at 04:50 PM
More than Mocha. The variety of drinks and snacks are delicious! The workers are also super friendly and helpful! What's better than enjoying a great coffee while reading or browsing any book of your choice?
John July 06, 2012 at 01:30 PM
Elijah's Coffee Shop!!!
edward m. dorner July 06, 2012 at 05:09 PM
More than Mocha without a doubt. The library traffic provides a remarkable atmosphere, the staff is great and the coffee mix reminds me of the old Chocolate Moon
Viki H July 07, 2012 at 02:52 PM
Elijah's. Love supporting a family-owned business in town. Both locations offer exceptional friendly baristas, games & books for patrons to enjoy, like the community board at the south Elmhurst location, and nice selection of baked items to accompany my coffee. Viki
