Great food

I bought a sandwich here for my lunch the following day, while hiking at Ano Nuevo State Park. I had the turkey, bacon, avacado and lettuce sandwich. It was so-o good, I wish I had eaten there the night I had purchased it and gone back for a different sandwich for the next night's dinner... read more

Warm atmosphere, fast and friendly service and food of great quality! Everything here is made from scratch, always us ng fresh produce and high quality fresh ingredients. Their soups are supposed to be simmered on slow fire and they boast of their family recipe for each and every dish, and they very well deserve it too!! They have soups, salads,... More

When I asked for a reuben sandwich, I was told that they microwaved it. This is not the way! The corned beef was fatty. I was told I had to ask for lean (?). Not a place I will ever return. I gave it a couple tries because it is around the corner from my doctor.

Don't go to Erik's expecting a New York or Los Angeles or Chicago-style DELI sandwich. Their bread SUCKS...like Wonder bread variety. It doesn't hold up to a hot meat sandwich. If I knew I HAD to eat there I'd take my own bread...like delicious corn rye (Trader Joe's carries a traditional Jewish rye with body). I was insulted when I... More

In the mood for a great sandwich? Try Erik's deli. Huge selection of sandwiches made while you wait and made to order. Salads and other items too. Take out or sit down.

Food is edible...sandwiches have names that purport to be both historical and funny.....but at least it's clean and quick on service. If McDonalds did healthy food....

The menus eclectic, a little something for everyone. Showing the vegetarians love with great food. My carnivore husband enjoyed the turkey pesto as well. The atmosphere is charming in an old rustics way and the service is great.

It's a PotBelly's type kind of chain deli but with a West Coast twist.
