Meet Our "Family"

About Us

imageMany of you may recognize owner and chef, Brenda Barner. She appeared on KCPT's "Check Please" at a former location in 2012. She acquired The Greenwood Country Tearoom in August of 2013 and opened the doors to the newly remodeled tearoom that September. Brenda is the mother of three lovely, amazing children and "Gram" to three wonderful grandchildren with whom she spends nearly every Tuesday evening.

imageVanessa Fahle not only co-owns the tearoom, but she is Brenda's daughter. Much like her mother, she has a well-rounded knowledge of the restaurant industry and has always wanted place of her own. She grew up in Lee's Summit and continues to make it her home with her husband Scott.

Brenda and Vanessa could not do this on their own. They have an incredible staff. Although, they are more than that; they are "family".
