Visitors to Cafe Erica in Hellertown over the past month have been noticing some exciting changes–both in terms of the cafe’s decor and its menu. Owners Sue and Vinny Cavataio have remodeled the restaurant–which opened in 2011–and introduced an expanded dine-in/takeout menu that includes hoagies, regular and gourmet pizza, steak sandwiches, wings, salads, calzone, stromboli and many other options. The breakfast specials, baked goods, tempting desserts, coffee, tea and specialty hot and cold drinks that have helped make Cafe Erica a popular destination in Hellertown are still available, along with the friendly service customers have come to expect. Sue Cavataio explained recently that the changes were partly influenced by customer feedback from Bella’s Ristorante–the adjoining Italian family restaurant the family also owns. “We always sold pizzas at Bella’s from the beginning, and customers would make comments to us about having larger pies–especially the gourmet pies that we do,” she said.
