The Beginning

Danae helped in her mom’s bakery and café as a child

The Dream

Got her first official restaurant job in Chestertown, Maryland after high school


Graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a major in Service Management and specialization in Restaurant Enterprise Management

The love of food is not a new concept in our household. Having grown up in a Mennonite home, we were taught to love all things food. Our mom taught us the valuable life lessons of how to make amazing food from scratch, how to host fantastic parties, that nearly anyone can be made happy by being fed, and that anything can be made better by adding a little bit more butter.

The goal for Charmed. is to be a place where the atmosphere is full of delicious aromas, friendly chatter, and hearty appetites. We never want you to leave without feeling happy, content, and already planning your next visit.

We love food. We love creating food, eating food, and making people happy with food. We want to bring that to Charmed. and create a sense of home, comfort, and charm!

Our idea is to create, produce, and serve delicious, full-flavored food and establish Charmed. as a favorite local restaurant.


Danae Schrock


The owner is my sister, Danae Schrock! She started helping in our mom’s bakery and café when she was young, worked at a farmer’s market/deli, and then got her first official restaurant job in Chestertown, Maryland after high school. She became one of the line chefs at Brooks Tavern, and credits 90% of her food and knife skills to the owners Kevin and Barbara McKinney.

Danae moved to Baltimore in 2010 to attend Culinary school. After a year and a half of schooling and working in restaurants, Danae worked a “front of house” position as server and bartender for a year, and then became one of the restaurants’ managers. From there, Danae moved to a General Manager position at a restaurant in downtown Baltimore and enrolled in Business School. In 2016, she graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business with a major in Service Management and specialization in Restaurant Enterprise Management. The dream was always to start a restaurant of her own, and after years of talking about it, Danae decided to make it a reality. In recognition of her love for Baltimore (“Charm City”), Charmed. was derived. The entire menu was created by Danae, and she gained inspiration for dishes from our mom, her foodie friends, and from visiting small cafés in Chicago, during a 3-month stint there.

Can’t wait to see you at Charmed.!


Donna Borntrager


The General Manager of Charmed. is my sister, Donna Borntrager. Donna brings the hospitality, creativity, and organizational skills that Charmed. needs to create an atmosphere of home and welcome. Donna is a wife, mother, registered nurse, and all-around guru for Charmed. When she’s not in the middle of any of those things, what she really loves to do is paint and create. Come to Charmed. to see her latest creations/paintings!

Heidi Holleger


Heidi has been in the food industry for 8-10 years. Born and raised in Delaware, she moved to Baltimore 5 years ago and fell in love with the city. She loves hospitality and making people “feel known” and is bringing that vibe to Charmed. She has brought her creativity in our daily muffins, scones, and specialty drinks.

Reggie Spence


Reggie has been cooking for over 10 years now and Charmed. is incredibly lucky to have him running their kitchen. Born and raised in Baltimore, since starting to cook, he has been in and out of kitchens but says that he has “finally found a home” here at Charmed. His specialty… meats. Since taking over the kitchen at Charmed., he has introduced new spices and flavors to our dishes, brought in Chicken & Waffles, Cream of Crab, and Flank Steak in our weekly specials.

Steve Brown


Steve has been cooking for over 20 years now and Charmed. is extremely grateful to have his skills! Born and raised in Baltimore and a die-hard Ravens fan, he is the perfect addition to our kitchen crew. When asked what his favorite thing to cook was, his response, “Everything.” And it’s true! He brings his own flare on food in our weekly soups, specials, and French toast.
