Karen’s Calling

Karen knew at the age of 16 that being a restaurateur was her calling. After ten years working at a café and studying hospitality management on Hilton Head Island, Karen felt she was ready to own her own restaurant. A friend from St. Louis told her about a cute little place in Crestwood, MO. She visited and fell in love instantly. What happened next was akin to an old-fashioned barn raising where the community came out to support her lifelong passion: The Barn was born.

Just the cutest little place! We were in the area for a doctor’s appointment, and needed breakfast. A quick internet search led us here, a brand new place for us! Staff was super sweet, service was fast, and food was top notch! Try the strata!
