We welcome shopping tours and groups to the Eli’s Cheesecake Cafe throughout the year but it is always a little more festive and fun during the holiday season.

Our holiday season for groups starts on the Saturday before our Thanksgiving Dock Sale & the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival when the Tours du Jour of Highland Community College in Freeport, Illinois visits us in the morning for coffee, samples and shopping before going on to Woodfield Shopping Mall.
