Company Profile

Lizzy J Cafe

  • Growing up as a little girl in Philadelphia, I watched the women in my life prepare meals as simple as Sunday morning breakfast of pancakes, eggs and grits to our holiday feast with staples  like candied yams and macaroni and cheese. No matter what dish, love was the main ingredient. And, we always had plenty of it to add to whatever we made. My family created numerous memories over a plate of delicious, well prepared food.

    For more than 25 years,  I worked as an event planner and tasted the finest of every cuisine.  My travels have taken me to complete classes with Food Network star, Tyler Florence and cooking with executive chefs in the industry.  I have been trained at the hip of my grandmother and godmother. 

    My professional experience has expanded my personal palette and my creativity.  Since moving to Illinois, I have completed the required licensure and insurances required from the state.

    My love of food and creating special moments is my motivation for launching Lizzy J. Named after five generations of first born woman with the middle name of Elizabeth, I am the fourth generation Elizabeth.

    Lizzy J is a full service catering company. We specialize in everyday food with an extraordinary twist. We still incorporate the family staple of love into each dish. We believe every guest should have a memorable experience that exceeds her expectations. We aim to 'wow' you. Our philosophy is that excellence is in the details, and we don't settle for anything less.

    We offer a spectrum of services from an intimate anniversary dinner for two to a wedding celebration of 200 guests. We specialize in the big and the small. We can skillfully handle everything from concept to execution.

    Let us create a memorable moment for you and dazzle your taste buds.
