Food scene

Annette Schmidlin speaking about her restaurant in Wadena, 9 miles from Hewitt. We are of German descent, so the name is fitting (“Oma” is German for Grandma). We enjoy bringing some of home with us and specialize in baked goods. After moving to the States, we’ve found a way to share our love of German style baking with you all. I’m an Oma of a handful of children, so baking is one of my passions. Making and eating breads are essential to our household and our business. As our operation grows, we look forward to making it a family-oriented business. We started out with selling our product at several Farmer’s Markets before opening our first storefront in August of 2017. With having a brick and mortar bake shop we were able to accommodate our client’s orders year round. The community enjoyed our baked products so much we decided to add a lunch menu a year later. After three years of having our storefront, we outgrew it fast and opened a much bigger restaurant and bakery. We are currently open later on Friday and Saturday evenings with our unique German menu and sometimes feature a special. We are very grateful for the support we have received and are happy to invite you to our restaurant & bakery for a German bite to eat, with a fresh baked pastry and specialty cup of coffee.
