I took these photos of the Ole Café on a snowy morning a couple of weeks ago when I had coffee with Jane McWilliams.

Posted to their Facebook page yesterday:

Attention Ole Cafe Customers…Only 7 days left to get your favorite Ole Cafe soups, salads, sandwiches and desserts:( 2/14/11: SOUPS Tomato Basil, Chicken Chili, Chicken Wild Rice, Mushroom and Barley:::::PASTA SALADS: Oriental Vegetable, Cashew Chicken

It’s kind of strange that there’s no explicit mention of the closing on that page nor on their website.  And in last week’s Northfield News article about the closing:

Cafe owner Angie Perez confirmed the closure Monday, but declined to elaborate on reasons behind the shuttering.

    Nfld Patch: Ole Store Purchased, Reopening as Restaurant

    The Ole Store is back in business.

    Chuck Pryor, proprietor of the Tavern of Northfield Restaurant & Lounge and The Grand Event Center, has purchased the building and plans to reopen it mid-June as the Ole Store Restaurant. Keeping the Ole Store name was imperative, he said…

    Remodeling of the building starts this week. Among the changes will be the addition of some custom booths and the removal of the cafeteria line in favor a more traditional cooking line. In the summer, work on a patio begins for patrons who want to eat outside.
