Visit EAT! Kitchen and Pantry Store for lunch or to stock up on kitchen gadgets.
At EAT! Kitchen and Pantry Store, there’s something for everyone. Spouses and co-owners of the little corner café and kitchen store next door, Shawn and Barbara Smith provide the White Bear Lake community both American-style lunches and hand-picked kitchen tools.
Shawn oversees the restaurant. Having grown up on a farm, working in the food industry is second-nature to him. Barbara manages the store, selling quality cookware, useful kitchen utensils and dining accessories. Their daughter Sam also fills in as needed in the restaurant or store.
Whether serving seniors lunch or helping a bride-to-be with her wedding registry, the Smiths enjoy working together.
“[Barbara] picks the gadgets, and I find a way to put them on the shelves,” Shawn says. “We’re partners in everything.”
