Just ate here and I'm perfectly fine! This is the first time I've eaten out since diagnosis and I'm so glad the experience was a good one. Even my receipt says "SUB Gluten-Free Whole Grain [Bread]" and "Allergy!!!" on it. I spoke to the cashier and he assured me they have a food allergy protocol and I would be taken care of. And of course, the sandwich was delicious. THANK YOU!

I eat here all the time. All sandwiches can be made with Udi’s gluten free bread. Two soups are gluten free also.

Erik’s has a gluten free protocol so I was surprised to had been glutened when I ate at this location last 4 years ago. Came back with some coworkers yesterday, ordered my usual GF Pilgrims Progress and no reaction! Glad I can rely on Erik’s to have a safe gluten free meal! Thanks!

I get gluten free here all the time. Any sandwich can be made gluten free. They use Udis gluten free bread.

Really great sandwiches. They do a great job keeping food from getting cross contaminated.

Staff was super-friendly and helpful, but were so focused on the gluten-free protocol that they got our order wrong and we didn’t realize it until we were in the car and they had already locked the doors because they were closing. Sandwiches were eh. Udi’s bread (not a fan) was past it’s prime and promptly fell apart as soon as we took our first bites. Turkey had a funky taste and odor. We ended up not eating them. Won’t be back for this one.

Plenty of options and the staff always asks if the order is preference or "allergy". Love the sandwiches and potato salad!

They were able to make every sandwich on gluten free bread. They also had a few gf soups too.

Have gluten free bread and use an allergy kit to prepare sandwiches. Asked if it was allergy or preference so they knew to use all fresh ingredients and be extra careful for celiac.

Good sand which! They asked if it was an allergy or a preference. Then used a separate preparation space.

The staff knew what they had available that was gluten free. My husband and daughter (both have celiac) got chili and potato salad. Both were very happy with their lunch. Everyone was extremely friendly as well. My daughter (9years old) kept thanking me for finding this place for lunch. We will come back when in the area.

This is some of the best gluten free bread I’ve ever had!!! Their sandwich was sooo delicious, I only wish it had more meat. I’m going to see if I can ask for that next time. I really loved that they had a “G” next to the soups they offered if they were gluten free and over all it was a great experience!

Slightly different bread than another location I’m used to; their stuff was a little mushy. But I love the dedicated GF prep area.

Ran out of gluten free bread- but the half sandwich I had was great! I appreciate being asked “preference or allergy”, and the attention taken :-)

They have a dedicated cutting board and station and can print out what is safe. Very helpful for the most part. I did have one anxious to please worker who told me the Asian dressing was safe but I asked another to confirm that and it indeed had soy sauce. I was glad I pushed it. Delicious soups! They use Udi’s bread.

Great lunch spot - soups, salads, sandwhiches. Menu is labeled for GF options (soups,salads). GF bread available for all sandwiches. I had butternut squash soup and a tuna melt. Lovely!

They have a separate station for making the gluten free items. While I miss sourdough, I liked their gf bread. I have eaten there several times and not had any problems.

I've had good experiences at this Erik's. When you let them know your order needs to be treated as an allergy they're good about taking precautions. The gluten-free bread isn't my favorite and it's a little crumbly, but it does the trick.

Their menu specifies which items are GF with a green circled "G" next to it, although it warns that there's a chance of cross-contamination. They also offer any sandwich on GF bread (pre-packaged Udi's). I asked them to make my daughter's sandwich on a clean plate so that there would be less risk of contamination. He changed his gloves and used a bread board that is dedicated for GF. My daughter is extremely sensitive to cross contamination, but she had no problems afterward, thanks to their precautions. We would definitely come again!

Really tasty sandwich, decent price, gluten-free bread upon request. Of all the places on this app, so far I like this place the best. I ordered Abbotts Habit and the Ross's beef tasted very fresh and it was nice and tender and the cheese tasted high quality too.

Had a fantastic sandwich here that is made in a separate space from regular sandwiches. Thank you for not upcharging for gluten free bread!

By far, this is probably my favorite GF place to eat and definitely one of the best Erik's around. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. They never seem to be too busy for dinner which is nice and they usually always have plenty of seating. They know which soups are GF and they post a list of those soups on the wall so they can quickly refer to it. The GF bread is delicious and so too is the butternut squash soup.

Don't bother unless you either print out or memorize their gluten-free menu posted on their website. I didn't have enough signal to pull it up at the restaurant, and none of the three employees knew anything about a gf menu. They said, "We only have bread."

Super good potato salad! I never had any problems with it and the quality of the restaurant is great.

GF options clearly indicated on menu & includes a sour or two. Cashier specifically asked if my request for GF bread was for an allergy. Great to actually have a sandwich.

It is so hard to find a delicious, celiac friendly restaurant - especially something quick. That's why Erik's DeliCafe is so perfect! The menu is very specific, the owner and employees are knowledgeable and understanding, and the food is seriously delicious. I can finally have soup and a sandwich for lunch again, without having to sacrifice flavor or pay an obscene amount!

This place is not safe and I will not eat here. The manager is rude and doesn't care. Go to the Dublin store, they actually do care!

They were really busy and this isn't my usual Erik's location. The one in Los Gatos has never ever made me sick. But this one did. Itchy scalp and some nice mouth-tingling.

Delicious! Every sandwich can be made with GF bread, but definitely have them check their Nutritional Facts binder for all of the ingredients if you're super sensitive. They were very helpful and conscious of cross-contamination.

Had a slight reaction, but not enough to avoid the place completely since it is one of the only sandwich places around here!

Delicious every time! They're knowledgable about what gluten free means, which is nice in a deli/sandwich place! They'll ask if it's an allergy or preference and they change gloves and have an entirely separate prep station. Nice to finally have a toasted deli sandwich again!

It's been a long time since I have been able to have a Reuben sandwich at a deli that was on gf bread. It was very good.

Great reliable GF sandwiches like other Erik's locations. Udi's bread option in a larger sized slice than you can get at the store. Mention you have a gluten allergy and they will make your sandwich on a dedicated GF station. If you ask the staff, they can show you a binder with all allergen ingredients (not posted online). The secret goo sauce is dairy free.

The GF bread is yummy. Use the website to check specific sandwich ingredients. They have a separate prep area. Though I think the toppings are in a shared area.

So yummy. They must have learned from past mistakes because Contrary to another review they did ask if it was a preference or an allergy.
