The concierge at out hotel recommended this as a good place for carry out lunch. It was so good, I went back twice! The sandwiches are pre-made (I got an overstuffed egg salad on wheat both times), some lovely soups and mac/cheese, along with lots of other offerings like salads, desserts, and hot entrees. One day I had a spicy... More

Fortunate to have found this place, just walking by and decided to stop in for a quick lunch. We returned a week later and equally impressed. They offer pre-made sandwiches and salads but we decided on hot selection, several soup selections and hot entrees and hot sandwiches. Our first visit we had tuna melt and my wife lentil soup with...

While in Portland I stopped in here for an early lunch (around 11 am). I ordered the Northern which is a veggie sandwich consisting of fresh mozzarella, tomato, and basil. The sandwich is served toasted. I love the idea of a toasted sandwich but they must toast the bread separately and then put in the cheese and tomato. What I... More

We stopped in here on a rainy Saturday because all the nearby food trucks were closed. We were happy to find a warm, cozy eatery that offered hot soup and grilled sandwiches. Service was a little slow that day, but our options appeared rather limited. Just glad we weren't in too much of a hurry. Lots of food choices in... More

A great variety of sandwiches, soups and salads. You can grab a cookie or pastry, too. Always fresh and tasty but a bit high priced for lunch.

All Elephants are good but this one is Great! Best for lunch or Coffee and a Cookie. This is one of the many Elephant outlets but in my opinion is second only to the NW Flagship.

We were in Portland and did a little sight seeing. The 'Pink Trolly' driver recommended this deli. Were we delighted. Fresh from scratch food, reasonable prices, varied menu, very helpful and friendly staff, easy to find. We had a 'French Dip' sandwich which is the absolute best I have ever had. Toasted thin baguette, swiss cheese, blue cheese, horseradish, onion.... More

The Flying Elephants at Fox Tower is a couple minutes away from our hotel, so we decided to get a few to-go items. It’s primarily a take out place, but they do have a limited number of chairs and tables if you want to eat there. They have a display of pre-wrapped sandwiches and salads, a hot food/soup area, a...

We were staying at a hotel near by, and this darling deli/mart was perfect for our daily needs. We got beverages and snacks for our room. Ate breakfast here one day, and it was excellent. The staff is super friendly and accommodating. Highly recommend if you need a quick yummy meal or snack.
