Ursula Roehm Opens Uschy’s Café in Wilmington, Delaware

The Best of the Wurst

When Edda’s Deli Café in Trolley Square closed a few years ago, “I had no idea where to eat anymore,” says Ursula Roehm. “I need my German food.” So after a few years as a self-described “desperate housewife” (shopping every day is expensive, she jokes), Roehm opened Uschy’s Café in Wilmington. You’ll find American breakfast and lunch favorites, but the big news is, of course, German specialties: bratwurst, knockwurst, Bavarian sausage loaf, pork and chicken schnitzel and nurnberger, with delicious homemade sides such as sauerkraut, German potato salad and the noodles known as spaetzle. (Try it layered with fried onions and Swiss cheese.) Don’t forget dessert—pastries, cupcakes and Black Forest cake. The blue-and-white diamond decor is a motif in the crest of Roehm’s native Ingolstadt in Bavaria. You’ll notice leopard print, too. It may not seem to make sense, but it does to Roehm. “I love my leopard.” Uschy’s is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday at 913 N. Market St., Wilmington.
