Offering speciality foods since 1978

-   ABOUT US  -

In 1950, when Dittmer was just 14 years old he started working at his family's delicatessen in Hamburg, Germany. Eventually, he immigrated to Canada and finally the US. After working in several grocery stores and butcher shops, Dittmer and his wife Margaret Bubert decided it was time to open up their very own small business, Dittmer's Gourmet Meats & Wurst-Haus. 

Dittmer's collection of recipes were shaped from his German roots as well as many mentors he met along the way. His passion and drive of making quality sausages, lunch meats, and smoke meats led to many awards and loyal Customers. Today, Dittmer's legacy is carried on in Los Altos, California by his daughter Petra Silva. 

Dittmer's Gourmet Meats & Wurst-Haus is an old-fashioned butcher shop and delicatessen. We take great pride in offering only the finest in quality fresh meats and house made specialty items.

Dittmer's has been proudly serving Los Altos, Mountain View, and the greater San Francisco Bay Area since 1978. Bratwurst, leberkase, smoked pork chops were among the first products we offered and they continue to be among our most popular items today. We now offer over 100 specialty items, including sausages, smoked meats, fresh meats, and lunch meats.

Dittmer's insists that only the highest quality meats and spices are used in our products. It is the key to making the quality products for which we are known. Such devotion to quality has resulted in a high level of customer satisfaction and numerous industry awards.
