Our food is made with care and character. We put the spirit of the band and the hard work and ingenuity of our cooks into every meal all while being sourced from the best most ethical farms.
We are proud to source our ingredients from so many incredible farms and partners. They never compromise on quality or character. Learn more about who we work with.
In 1973 Erik Johnson used a little over $400 to transform a 600 square foot delicatessen and bakery in Scotts Valley into the first Erik’s DeliCafé. A lot has changed since then, but one thing that will never change is our commitment to character. At all of our 32 Erik’s DeliCafé locations, you can count on our Sandwiches with Character®, salad, and soup you enjoy are made with the highest quality meats, cheeses, and fresh produce we can find. Our soups are our cherished family recipes and slow-simmered. Our salads are fresh and just as full of flavor as they are nutritive value. And all of them are served up with the passion and pizzaz that you’ve come to know us for. To us, that’s what having character is all about.
