Chicago Southland Restaurant Offers Southern Creole Flavor

As the name suggest, Glynis Harvey and Mark Cagley, owners of this family-owned restaurant called Hidden Manna Cafe in historic downtown Matteson (pronounced Matt-e-son), wanted to open a place where everyone in the community could relax, feel loved and get a taste of southern, creole heaven, right in the Chicago Southland area.

Matteson is a village in Cook and Will counties, Illinois and is part of Chicago’s southland region. Having a love for people, food and coffee, the couple opened Hidden Manna Cafe (3613 West 216th Street) in 2014 after careers in the private sector, they explained. The south suburban 120 seat cafe features authentic Creole and American fare and imported coffees and teas.

All food is made from scratch and made to order and they also offer gourmet coffees and teas to compliment our menu, they explained.

“Always on the look out for good coffee, we decided to open a place where there is always good coffee, a warm atmosphere and a place to talk about good,” said Harvey.

Serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, their offerings consist of select coffees and teas, smoothies, pancakes, chicken and waffles, steak and eggs, gourmet soups, salads, sandwiches and much more.

They offer a variety of entertainment as well, including dinner and movie, poetry, book reading, spoken word and music and much more.
