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

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.
CEO & FOUNDER
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.!
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!
