Family owned and operated since 1982, Nel's Catering is known locally for it's excellent food at fair prices. Nel's Cakes & Catering first began straight out of Nel's kitchen. Business became too much for the small kitchen, so Nel and her husband Paul moved their business into Somonauk in 1985. Since that time, Paul and Nel continued to run their business together. While Nel continued to work in all areas of the business, she spent most of her time and creativity on cake decorating.

Locals could count on a friendly face and a good joke whenever they came into they came into the deli. Paul and Nel retired in 2004. Since that time, their granddaughter, Tari and her husband Phil Jansen have taken over where they left off. Although the humor is better, the food is just the same.

New sandwiches such as the Philly Cheese Steak, the St. Louis Greg have been added to the menu and named after people who have inspired Phil to create these items. Other deli and menu items are continuously considered, tested and reviewed.

We are known for our potato salad and Italian Beef Sandwiches, but carry a large variety of salads and meat choices in our deli. Please do not feel limited by our menu. We will cater to your needs and ideas. No job is too big or too small. We can create menus to match your tastes and themes.

Please see our links above for current choices and pricing options. If you have any other questions, please call. We look forward to hearing from you!
