Adelina's is my top choice tailor in town. She does great work and is the cheapest I've found in the Lombard/Villa Park area. She has a small shop and does most things herself. She also has a great turn-a-round!!!
20 West is my choice of liquor stores in Lombard. They specialize in wines and spirits, but you can always count on finding specialty beers too! The owner, Visal, is very knowledgeable with wines and aims to find interesting and organic wines. Visal and his staff are always very big in the community. They host several fundraising wine/beer tastings a year as well as lead up a larger fundraisers in the community.
I enjoy being dark in the summer tan, but chose not to use the tanning beds to protect my skin. As a great alternative I started using the Mystic Tan. The mystic tan is a UV Free spray tan. It's simple to do and only takes less than 5 minutes. In just a few hours you'll notice a streak free natural tan without damaging your skin from harmful UV rays.
I've been to quite a few hair salons of the years and hands down, Effigy tops them all. I need simple, low maintenance styles that are easy to handle and Joan gave me the perfect hair cut and highlight. The rest of the stylists are just as great! I always see people leaving their salon with a big grin!
Ala Mode is perfect for that quick cup of coffee (or ice cream) on your way to work. It's also the perfect escape from your house. Their drinks are delicious, the ice cream is hard to avoid and they even have free wi-fi for their customer. I recommend!!!
I have passed this place time and time again when in Elmhurst. If you blink, you'll pass it. I got a gift certificate to Nee Nee & Na Nas and decided to check it out. It's a very small restaurant but our server was wonderful and our food was delicious. The place is just a couple doors from the York movie theatre which was easy for us to do dinner and a movie.
This is my nail salon of choice. The owner is absolutely wonderful. They do a really great job working fast to get minimize the wait for their customers. I would definitely recommend.
I've had my nails done here and wasn't 100% pleased. Other near by salons do a much better job. I got a french manicure and pedicure here and was shocked that it only stayed good for a couple of days.
Baja Fresh is a lunchtime favorite for my co-workers and I. It's in a great location and has delicious food. They have great guacamole and mango salsa. Their two taco combo is plenty of food and isn't too expensive.
This is my favorite place to go after work for a few drinks and appetizers. Most of their menu is half off from 3-7pm. It's a chic atmosphere with great food. They also have great options for people that are new to sushi.
