RAVENSWOOD — As names go, Eats and Sweets Cafe ranks high on the self-explanatory scale but it doesn't capture the vision owners Tim Benedict and Margaret McCall have for their business, which they bought in 2015.

On Monday, the husband-and-wife duo are reintroducing Eats and Sweets, 1636 W. Montrose Ave., as The Mothership Cafe.

The rebrand is a better fit for the couple's expanding universe, which also includes a second location, Uptown's Satellite Cafe, McCall explained in a statement.

Both shops are now grouped under McCall and Benedict's umbrella enterprise, dubbed Intergalactic Cafes.

Customers can expect a few interior design tweaks at The Mothership to fit the space theme, and a new mural is in the works for the building's exterior, McCall said.

To coincide with the rebranding, Benedict is rolling out a formalized catering menu and adding more dinner options to The Mothership's regular menu, including burgers and chicken tenders.

Hours will remain the same: 6:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m. weekdays, and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. weekends.

Benedict and McCall took over ownership of Eats and Sweets in 2015, a year after the Lacey family opened the cafe. The location was formerly home to Angel Food Bakery
