Bovey was a historical jewel in the Iron Range and is known for its rich mining history beginning in the early 1900’s and as the home of world-famous photograph & Minnesota’s official State picture “Grace”. Bovey was bustling in the early 1900’s. A major highway led through the town’s center and past the Renaissance Revival designed Bovey Village Hall which still stands today and is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. Opposite Bovey Village Hall was the Muotka’s Mercantile store, the biggest hardware store in Northern Minnesota at that time. Now known as Annabella’s Antiques and new home to Nana Chelle’s Cafe , legend has it that part of the store operated as a speakeasy during prohibition days. The still existing tunnel & side doors that led from the basement out to the alleyway is now open to the public.
Nana Chelle’s Cafe is a full-service cafe located in the City of Bovey. The restaurant features a full menu of moderately priced “comfort” food influenced by Scandanavian cooking traditions handed down for generations throughout our family, but based upon time honored recipes from around Minnesota. The cafe section of Annabella’s Antique Mall features a coffeehouse with a dessert bar, magazines, and space for group meetings. Nana Chelle’s Cafe is owned and operated by Rachelle A Ireland and Todd R Fideldy, residents of Marble, MN whom have been a part of the surrounding community for over 45 years.
