OUR STORY

Swirl Cafe evolved out of a dream and a career change all rolled into one. Betsie Bayless Brown, a long-time Grayslake resident, spent the better part of the last two decades raising children, concentrating on her family, working part time and volunteering within the community.

 

When her twins went off to college, she was faced with returning to the full-time corporate workforce. After intense soul searching, and recognition that she no longer wished to swim with the sharks but rather cook for them instead, she decided to hone her craft, go back to school, and pursue chef certifications in the culinary and pastry arts.

 

Betsie also discovered and forged a partnership with an uncommonly discerning small-batch coffee roaster. She believes that if you’re going to spend good money for a cup of coffee, it better be a great cup of coffee! So, she learned what it takes to truly make a great cup of coffee.

 

Combining her love of coffee and talent for creating sweet and savory offerings, the idea for Swirl Cafe was born. Beginning with the Grayslake Summer Farmer’s Market in 2013, Swirl Cafe introduces their signature “Sticky Bun” and specialty light and dark roast coffees to enjoy at the market, or to purchase for home brewing.

 

The new venture has launched with the tireless help of friends and family who share our love of great coffee and unique treats. We look forward to serving our neighbors and Grayslake visitors alike on our journey toward a permanent location.
