As the black and white sign above the glass storefront proclaims, Erickson's Delicatessen has "everything for the smorgasbord." Established in 1925 in the historically Swedish neighborhood of Andersonville, the tiny shop carries a wide array of Scandinavian delicacies as well as products imported from Denmark, Norway, Italy, and Holland. Inside, patrons find lingonberries in all forms, including fresh, syrup, and juice concentrate. Other specialties include marinated herring, havarti cheese, Finnish licorice, knäckebröd (crisp bread), and deli meats ranging from smoked ham to Swedish meatballs. The mother-daughter duo running the shop provides expert guidance for those unfamiliar with traditional Scandinavian fare.
