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. Whenever I'm back in S.C.... 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.
