About Glen Ellyn
The annual Taste of Glen Ellyn is a village-wide extravaganza with booths of craft vendors, a stage with rotating singing acts, booths from several area restaurants, and many other vendors. The major attraction though is arguably the carnival which visits once a year.
The Farmer's Market occurs every Friday from spring until fall. Many different farmers offer their farm fresh produce, flowers, and baked goods.
- Glen Theatre, 540 Crescent Blvd. A quaint movie theatre in the center of Glen Ellyn, with the most popular current flicks and and maybe one or two indie films.
It is Glen Ellyn's restaurant scene that is the true star of downtown. The CBD features numerous award-winning restaurants, including Cab's, Bistro Monet, Shannon's Irish Pub , Marinella's , Barone's, Mykha's , Thipi Thai, and Santa Fe .
Recently a former downtown Glen Ellyn mainstay returned to the CBD after a 2 year hiatus. Lee Ebersole's Heaven-Lee Chicago Hot Dogs cart was awarded a new permit to sell hot dogs after a two-year debacle with the DuPage County Health Department.
Glen Ellyn's own Flour Barrel Bakery in downtown is renowned for their big yellow smiley face cookies. These cookies are VERY popular to people of all ages and a staple of many Glen Ellyners' diets.
Nightlife in Glen Ellyn is mostly concentrated south of the railroad tracks, downtown, on Main Street. Here, most of the restaurants, namely, Shannon's, Santa Fe, and Cab's, feature a full-service bar. The thing that separates Cab's from the rest, though is its classy atmosphere and its obvious focus on Wine. For a more hardcore "bar" environment visit Curley's, downtown, across from the fire station.
The Central Business District of Glen Ellyn has many specialty stores to suit all types of people. In addition, there is a strong retail and commercial presence on Roosevelt Rd.
