A Bettendorf café, part of the State Street landscape for more than 30 years has to move. Waterfront Deli is one of several businesses moving to make way for the new I-74 bridge.

Waterfront Deli has called State Street home for 33 year but now they're finally shutting their doors and moving shop. For years, loyal customers have flocked here to get their hands on these signature sandwiches.

"Their sandwiches are awesome," said Deneen Lyon. "I love their sandwiches."

"I always get the ham and rye," said Todd Steffens.  "Reuben for me!" said Brian Johnson.

"I always get the turkey on sourdough and honey mustard is the best!" said Jamie Henningsen.
    
October 4th is the last day anyone will be getting their favorites, at least at this location. 

"It's a sad day," said Steffens. "We loved coming down here next to the waterfront specifically and this place was great when it was here, we're going to miss it a lot."

"I think it's a shame, I think they should be able to stay here," said Lyon. "I mean they've been here for 33 years so I think they really should stay."
     
The deli will join other empty storefronts in downtown Bettendorf, making room for the new I-74 bridge. 

"Progress is one thing, it's going to benefit us all," said Steffens. "Sometimes if you get older and sentimental, it kinda hurts."
     
With it, will go a lot of memories.
 
"We don't like change, but we're happy to be here on the last day," said Johnson.

"I worked here for a long time and I have a lot of memories here because I just grew up a couple streets up from here," said Jamie Henningsen."I'm gonna miss it a lot, being down here it's just a childhood memory They're like family down here."

But for those still looking for a bite to eat the trademark deli is moving just uptown. Where hopefully, many can come make new memories, and find new favorites.
