Dedicated to her dad; The Ripple Cafe offers a cozy place for a good meal
Barbara Underwood learned a lot from her father. But among the lessons she loved was how to cook. She is a 25 year veteran of the food service industry, had her own catering business for 12 of those years and had an ambition for a long time to open her own small cafe. That came true in the recently opened Ripple Cafe at 9007 35th Ave. SW. She's joined at the cafe by her daughter Kyle Krishna and her longtime friend Monica Silva.
Her father was Dave Kingery, graduate of West Seattle High School class of 1948, He learned to cook and was a chinese food expert, passing along all his secrets to his daughter.
Kingery was also a highly skilled wood carver. So when the opportunity arose for Underwood to open a restaurant she knew it would be dedicated to him and feature some of his artwork.
