Lena’s Soul Food Cafe
Lena Mae Peters was born April 15, 1935 in Wharton Texas. Like most young girls from the south during that time, Lena learned at a young age the ways of the kitchen. Lena learned to cook anything, but she particularly learned the style of southern cooking, also known as Soul Food. Lena became an outstanding cook and it would come in handy as she began to start her own family. As an Andrews child, once you were old enough, you were assigned a week that you had to prepare dinner for the family. Over the years each child honed their skills under the guidance of their mother. Lena Mae Andrews passed away November 30, 2004. Lena’s Soul Food Cafe is the creation of her five children and two grandchildren in honor of her cooking legacy. Come join us for some legendary soul food, we know you’ll love it!
