About the Owners (aka the staff)

It has long been a dream of ours to open a restaurant.  A comfy casual place where people can come and relax.  And since it is us three owning and staffing our place we thought you should know a little bit about us.

And without further ado – here we are:


Ned – Our Renegade Chef, Ned will always have something great for you to eat.  Creative, cynical, and a bit of a loud mouth – don’t worry – he’ll be in the kitchen for the most part.  Seriously though, his intense creative energy is wonderful.    He is the husband of Barbie.

Barbie – Baking fanatic/Waitress, Barbie will always have a sweet treat for you.   From keeping it old school with Rice Crispy Treats to elegant cakes there is something for everyone.  Sunny and smiley, she will always bring you things that will make you smile.  Wife of Ned.

Greg – Our Silent Partner.  He is way too silent actually.  Hey Greg – you can stop by now and again, you know?    A little about Greg:  He loves the Ladies and they love him, which is why he is too busy to be here I think.   He is an avid environmentalist and steward of The Santa Fe Prairie in Hodgkins, Il.  His hobbies include beer and arguing with Ned.

    I personally know Greg and to be honest have never known him to be silent. But yes a ladies man! Also an all around good guy.
    Good luck to you all

    I enjoyed my visit there with a huge cup of hot chocolate and a bowl of very filling stew. The waitress was wonderful, definitely my favorite waitress in Illinois.

    Hi again Barbie – you are cute as punch and so is your place. Can’t wait to come back! Can I say those coconut bars were other-worldly delish? WOW!

    Thanks again!
