I'm not sure why the high reviews for this place - I guess I'll be the exception. My turkey Rueben was the least flavorful sandwich I have ever had in my life. Very little turkey, almost imperceptible sauce, bland bread, under cooked. Very confusing approach...More

The absolute ONLY reason anyone has ever given this place less than 5 stars is because they work for a competing business! This is world-class, handmade food at its best. Wonderful staff, beautiful locale. Unreal variety and quality. I will eat here with family and...More

Vegetable and sausage fritta a great choice for breakfast. Tea served in a charming multi-cup ceramic elephant. Good regular coffee. In one of the many local neighborhoods. I'd pass on the pancakes if we revisit Portland (ok but not exceptional).

We ate lunch at Elephants and had a great experience. They have lots (!) of choices and can make items to order if requested. I had the wild mushroom soup (excellent) and the Carolina pulled pork sandwich (very good). For dessert I had a chocolate...More

Great place to experience the atmosphere of a Portland neighborhood! And the food is excellent! Eat inside or out.

Great fresh choices for entrees, wood-fired pizzas, bakery items, et cetera. There were four of us and we all ordered very different items--fish, burgers, chicken--all good. Cookies from the bakery were a big hit, too. Solid lunch choice for us!

Remember your parents telling you, "You get what you pay for, kid?" That's Elephants. For $12 you get a massive plate of french fries and fried mahi-mahi, also known as fish and chips. Yowser. Here you bus your own table, even wipe it off with...More
