About Ellie's Cafe
Head Chef and owner Catherine (Cathy) Stacey grew up in the Morgan Park neighborhood. Chef Cathy didn’t just learn to cook from attending a culinary school. She received her first training in the Italian kitchen of her mother (our namesake Ellie) and grandmother Maria. These women believed in the tradition of food being a part of the daily experience to be shared and enjoyed with family and friends.

Growing up with eight siblings, Chef Cathy had plenty of experience in the kitchen, but went on to receive formal culinary training in classic French cooking. She did an extended stay in Italy working at different Trattoria’s throughout the country. Chef Cathy’s experience in Old World style has inspired her to create a menu line of foods with a traditional foundation and New World freshness-to be enjoyed by our neighborhood family and friends.
