Norwegian Food & American Favorites

Located in Rice Lake, Hayward, DeForest, and Osseo, Norske Nook is renowned for its homemade cooking of Norwegian food and American favorites and “made from scratch, each crust rolled by hand” award-winning pies. Each location is open seven days a week and offers a full menu along with daily morning, noon, and evening specials.

Since opening 1973, Norske Nook has earned national recognition and many awards. Midwest Living and Wisconsin Trails magazines have highlighted Norske Nook’s down-home cooking and hospitality. We’ve also been visited by famous country, rock-n-roll and news media celebrities. Tourists from across the country drive hours just to experience the Nook!

Bakery and Gifts

Each Norske Nook in-house bakery provides guests with a variety of baked goods to order or take home. We have competed several years at the National Pie Championship in Florida and have won 45 blue ribbons! Some Norske Nook locations also feature a gift shop with a variety of Scandinavian gifts.
