NEW ULM — The Willkommen Committee stopped by the new Gutes Essen Deli & Café in Oak Hills Living Center. Gutes Essen Deli and Catering began in 2011, but quickly outgrew the previous deli, kitchen, and storage areas. The homemade freezer meals have been a hit, with about 800 meals purchased in February. Freezer meals are $14, feed 4-6 people, and are offered year-round. The new extended deli café is open 7 days a week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. and is open to the public. Daily specials are posted on the website at, and there is also a salad bar available daily. Dine in or takeout.
