Erik's Deli Café - somewhat hesitant to go in - located in a strip shopping center. Turkey sandwich was tasty, but they forgot the tomato I ordered. Manager seemed too busy to greet or check on us.

Next door to the Best Western, which made it easy for us to take sandwiches to our room for the NBA final game. Great sandwiches with fresh ingredients. Recommend half sandwich for small appetites--they were very large. Potato salad was excellent.

I really have a thing with Erik's. I know that I should try different places for lunch, but I just love Erik's Deli Cafe wherever they are. Pilgrim's Progress is just the very best sandwich ever. Can't help it ;-)

Wonderful squash soup - thick and flavorful. Thought the clam chowder was so-so. Good sourdough bread bowl - fresh; lighter in texture and more authentic in taste than most commercial bread bowls. Sandwiches are tasty, too. Salads are pretty standard.
