Just a couple of years ago we opened the first full-service grocery store in downtown Minneapolis and now we’re headed across the river to do the same in downtown St. Paul.

Opening May 15, Lunds Penfield will be downtown St. Paul’s first full-service grocery store!

Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen is officially open!

5… 4… 3… 2… 1… Welcome to Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen ! Our taps are flowing, our ovens are piping hot, and our food is fresh and ready to go.

Grand opening day was a rush – thank you to all who joined us! The morning started with a buzz of excitement and anticipation as everyone put the finishing touches on displays and triple checked every spotless inch. Our staff was eager to finally share what we’ve been working so diligently on these past months.

Bringing our kitchen to you Lunds and Byerlys Kitchen

Cozy up to our fireplace with a glass of wine expertly paired with a chef-crafted flight of Alaskan salmon. Stop by to grab soup, salad, or sandwiches for the whole crew before heading out for a day of fun around Lake Minnetonka. Or simply check milk and bread off the shopping list on your way home.

You’ll soon be able to do all of this and more at Lunds and Byerly’s Kitchen, a first-of-its-kind food destination opening in The Promenade of Wayzata on March 6. This is a place for great food, personable expertise, and shopping convenience


The 143-seat restaurant and bar will feature chef-crafted seasonal offerings, stone oven pizzas, burgers, and more. We'll also have an impressive selection of wine and local craft beers.
