When I visit a city, I prefer to grab a quick but healthy breakfast that gives me a good start for a full day of walking. Flying Elephants fits the bill perfectly. They have fruit cups, yogurts, even oatmeal along with many pre-made sandwiches. Their yogurt parfait looked a bit odd as the strawberry yogurt was a bright artificial pink,... More

This little deli has great food for take out or eating there at Director's Park. The must haves: blueberry scones or cherry chocolate chip scones are outstanding; their homemade cookies are fantastic too. Make sure to th

Elephants is always a good place to pick up a last-minute salad or sandwich, fruit, cookies and snack, conveniently packaged and ready for you to pick up. They also have a hot food bar where you can get soup and other hot items. I don't give them a Very Good rating because too often I've gotten a slightly wilted salad... More

We had breakfast here three times during our stay in Portland. Once we dined outside at the little table; the others took back to our hotel room. Scrambled eggs with chorizo, eggs with vegetables, fresh salsa, croque madame were standouts. Quick and fresh

Yes, it was convenient because it was a stones-throw away from my hotel....but it was over-priced (because they claim organic-products), lack,.. or I should say, very little amount of protein (turkey, ham, tuna, egg) in their sandwiches (another cost-cutting technique). This company is an imitation of Pret A Mange....which originated in London back in the 80's. Pret has infiltrated America... More

This is a great spot to go for a grab and grow that is made with great ingredients and fresh. It is a staple of mine when I go to Portland.

We stopped in for a quick lunch. They have a huge selection of great looking sandwiches and salads. They also offer hot soups and grilled sandwiches. I had the tomato and orange soup with a grilled cheese. It was a perfect combo for a rainy Portland day. I also had the peanut butter, oatmeal and chocolate cookie. Very tasty!

You can be in and out of this restaurant in no time. I rated them 4 out of 5 stars just because there is somewhat of a limited menu.

Elephants is one of my favorite local places to get a cup of coffee for the road. Occasionally I will pick up a dessert but frankly, I come for the cinnamon coffee. Also, their tomato citrus bisque has healing powers when I have a cold. I normally visit the Flying Elephants in the Fox tower which is mostly grab and... More
