Hello Metamora

Hello Metamora

The best things are always worth waiting for. The circumstances that led us to our newest shop in Metamora have been over a year in the making. It feels much longer ago even than that! We first looked at the property back in March of 2016, and from the very beginning, we could see Eli’s in this building and community. The historic building had such a wonderfully inviting atmosphere to it. With tall ceilings, floor-to-ceiling glass windows, gorgeous exposed brick, and magnificent hardwood floors, the property was irresistible. The setting on the square in such a community-focused town was a major draw to us as well.

Easter Catering Offerings

Easter Catering Offerings

A season of freshness is upon us. Easter feels like the first real launch of the Spring season, and we wanted our baking for your Easter table to reflect that. The pastries and desserts you’ll see below channel the fresh, delicate flavors of spring like a Whipped Strawberry Cheesecake or the nostalgia of family get-togethers, like a Lemon Bundt Cake! We hope you’ll allow us to be a part of your Easter gathering, celebrating a season of renewal.

Take a look at all of our Easter Offerings below! All orders must be placed by 5pm on April 14th.

Hello From Rachel & Weston

Hello From Rachel & Weston

With a new shop coming and a lot going on this new year, we wanted to re-introduce ourselves to those who may not know us. We’re Rachel and Weston Berchtold, and we’ve been the managing owners of Eli’s for almost 2 years now! 

Rachel is a born and raised Tremont girl. She lived for most of her life on her family’s dairy farm east of town. Early morning milking shifts helped prepare her for a life of opening coffee shops before sunrise! Rachel started working at Eli’s in 2010 as a part-time barista and baker while she attended college at ISU. Being a history teacher was always the plan but opportunities to grow at Eli’s kept opening themselves up. Once the Tremont shop was opened, Rachel took the position of Tremont Manager and eventually purchased the majority of the business a couple years later.

Exciting News!

Exciting News!

From our beginning, Eli’s Coffee Shop has always been about one thing: Connecting people and their communities together. That calling is still with us today, woven into the fabric of our business. We are so proud of our drinks, bakery, and deli and strive every day to serve them in the highest quality but those things are a means to an end. They are the vehicle by which we bring people together. People have a choice on where they get their morning coffee, where they pick up a sweet treat, or grab a quick lunch. We are one of many different options. People choose Eli’s though, because of that connection they receive and our commitment to our local communities. Our baristas know your name. They know your favorite drink. Each month we donate to a local organization, and serve as a meeting place, open seven days a week for people to enjoy. Eli’s is a fixture of our communities and that’s something that we’re so proud of while still humbled by the responsibility.
