About The Ole Store

A Northfield business since 1889, the Ole Store is a Nordic-inspired restaurant with a rich history and a vibrant present. Fueled by the support of the Northfield community, our restaurant aspires to continue to be a place where people gather with their loved ones to share a meal or celebrate important life events.


The Secret Ingredient: Our Team

We believe that a business can be managed with integrity, rooted in community, and fueled by love.
These are fundamental aspirations that we hope to live by on a day-to-day basis. 

We know that this restaurant is only successful when every member of our team is invested in the experience we provide and when the Northfield community sees what we do and wants to support us.

Owner & General Manager

Growing up in Northfield, Kendall knows what makes our town so great. She is thrilled to be the next caretaker of this special place! The neighborhood setting of the Ole Store is her favorite aspects of the restaurant, a close second to the amazing guests and the incredible team that works here. Her goals are simple: to serve high-quality, freshly-prepared food and to create an inviting space where everyone feels warmly welcomed. She is deeply invested in this community and feel honored to show up for it in this new way.

Kendall lives in Northfield with her spouse, Rae, and their two pups. When not at the restaurant, Kendall and Rae can be spotted around town, on a long walk or on the search for the next best sandwich.

"I look forward to seeing you in the restaurant or out on the Lawn. Please feel free to say hello and introduce yourself! Beyond food, I love talking about dogs, gardening and outdoor adventures. I’m grateful for each of you for your continued support and the enthusiasm you’ve already shared."



Kitchen Manager

Anastasia is our new Kitchen Manager aka the boss in the back. She has been on the team since January 2020, taking some time away during Covid times. With experience at Great Harvest Bread Co, her baking skills bring us every Ole Roll we sell. She’s worked at The Strip Club Meat & Fish in St. Paul, learning from some talented folks about the art of restaurants. We’re excited to see her take on the leadership in the kitchen and continue to bake all things yummy. 

Anastasia lives in Northfield with her husband, two kiddos, Peaches the dog, and a few chickens. Outside of work, Anastasia is seeking flaky pastries at our community's fabulous bakeries, searching for unique home decor items and stashing candy in the cupboards around her home and the office.
