I was wondering what restaurant I might wander into for lunch when I spotted Flying Elephants. I loved the deli shopping atmosphere and found a great deal of variety from salads to sandwiches to very fresh cut fruit. I tried all of those plus added in a cookie for dessert. I walked out with my little grocery bag full, found a wonderful spot in the sun and had a great lunch. Everything was really, really good.

Stopped in for lunch and had many options. There is something for EVERYONE here. We each picked out a sandwich, shared a cup of soup and a sweet treat. Lots of choices. It can be a little overwhelming but worth it!

grilled caprese and grilled cubano were delicious. The choices were many. I wanted the soup but could not eat that much! Great recommendation from the concierge at the Heathman!

Elephants is a portland staple. Flying elephants, while smaller and limited seating, has all their great staples. Perfect spot for a quick bite while shopping or to get a picnic and go to the fountain park across street.

Flying Elephants may be small but it is mighty. Salads, amazing soups, sandwiches,desserts, a wide selection of beverages.All ingredients were fresh and items were attractively displayed in refrigerated cases. They also have gifts and cards. They also do event tastings, catering and lunch delivery.And they serve breakfast! Vegetarian, vegan, diary-free and wheat-free items are on the menu. The staff was very nice and helpful. It is a great place to go for a lunch downtown. If the weather is nice take your lunch outside to the tables around the fountain.
