Initial Visit: December 13th, 2014
Description: Eli’s Coffee Shop is perfect for Morton.
Before heading down to Edwardsville for a weekend of fun with some friends, we stopped off at Eli’s to grab some caffeine for the 2 hour drive. One of my friends (the one who took the Featured photo) was surprised none of us had been there and recommended we go.
So we stopped and made a short walk to Eli’s. Upon getting there, come to our surprise that it is in a converted house. How homely and cozy is that?! It must’ve been some High School gathering because there were young kids everywhere. But not too much that made it seem packed.
The staff was friendly in taking our orders and dealing with the amount of people. Since we were on the road, we took our drinks to go. On the way out, we snapped a group photo with their business sign. The drinks were good. Not a single complaint amongst us. You really can’t go wrong with a delicious drink, usually.
It’s been a few years and I still haven’t gone back. I need to rectify this soon! I would like to try out their baked goods and have some more delicious coffee.
They are also expanding. They have a Tremont location now and are soon taking over for Historic Grounds in Metamora. That location should be open in the Spring of 2017. Check them out if you are in the mood for a great local coffeehouse!
