About Gordy's Warming House

Opened in March 2005, the Warming House is owned and operated by Dan & Kelly Lundquist and family to serve as a gathering place for the local communities of Cloquet, Esko, and Carlton area. Unlike our seasonal restaurant (Gordy’s Hi-Hat), the Warming House is open year-round to provide an easy stop for travelers passing through any time of the year.

In 2004, Dan & Kelly remodeled the building, which is actually the old Lundquist homestead. They moved the smaller ice cream parlor from Gordy’s Hi-Hat (right next door) to the remodeled building, expanded to 32 flavors, and added a full gourmet coffee house with a menu including soups, sandwiches, and more!
