Elephants is in Directors Park and has a more extended hot menu than Flying Elephant across the park. The kale slaw is yummy as is the grilled fish sandwich.

“Great for casual quick bite”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

Open outdoor area with fountain in downtown Portland and is great for a quick bite. Lots of local scenery and good food with good portions.

“Good, fresh food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

Pulled pork sandwich and burger are really good. If you are a picky eater - be sure to specify how you want your food! Mexican Coke there too. Awesome!
What I didn't like was trying to dine outside on the benches and homeless people come up to you asking for money. Really?

“Great location and food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Very fresh and tasty food....we enjoyed the fish tacos and black bean burger. Nice selection of drinks. Friendly staff. Loved the outdoor eating area....my daughter and I played in the fountain after our meal. Fun place for people watching.

Exhausted on a business trip, looking for a quick bite to eat, and ran in this shop. I was not disappointed. Love it.
