Perfect stop to pick up a meal or just a snack. Great stop if you're staying at a hotel. They also have wine and beer.

Unfortunately elephants in the park did not justify the high ratings for us.. Both the black bean burger and the chicken strips were overcooked (close to being burnt). Result was food that was dry and not appetizing. The fish tacos were decent but there was...More

I had the best black bean burger here. They make theiron own buns, super soft and so delicious. My husband had a cheese burger that almost turned this vegetarian back into a meatatarian.

By chance we dropped in on this informal place on Taylor Street in Portland. We were served an excellent burger, while we watched little children enjoy the water fountains on the square. The price was good and the entire environment was clean.

In between our tours we had lunch here. It was quick, and clean. The burger was tasty and the drinks were cold. What more could you ask for in the middle of a busy day.

A limited but great menu, fast and friendly vegetarian offerings, Nice outdoor tables. Good non alcoholic selection of beverages. Great after you have parked your car and have spent the rest of your time in stores and in the theater.

Cute little place with friendly staff. I ordered the fish and chips and they were very good. It would have been nice to have vinegar and cocktail sauce but otherwise, good food. The place was packed but the service was very quick and accurate.
