Not your run of the mill restaurant. Friendly service. A little spendy for what you get, but good tasting fresh choices

I have lived in the Northfield area for over 30 years. During that time the Ole Store has a couple incarnations--none better than the current one. Excellent service--excellent food--nuff said!
