We enjoyed visiting this eatery! We expected a sandwich deli type place. Instead, we walked into this large building with various mini-eateries inside! It was like a smorgasbord cafeteria! We walked about from one station to another, as each one offered different types of food--sandwiches, burgers, Mexican food, hot entrees, and best of all for my husband, Stumptown coffee with...

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 friends until the day I die!! Thank you!!

We are at many places in Portland and I think this was one of the most satisfying and flavorful. They have lots of variety and it all is prepared well and tastes good. Try this place if you're looking for a nice spot to grab lunch (even to go). We had sandwhiches and the orzo pasta and everything was yummy.... More

Had the two egg breakfast here. Two perfect over-easy eggs, two strips of premium bacon, from scratch corned beef hash and two slices of walnut toast for under $10. Wonderful! Also had a ham and Swiss on baguette. Delicious! Highly recommend this restaurant.

By chance I drove by and was interested in trying out the food. Elephants is much much more than a restaurant. It is a delicatessen/store/fresh made food place where you can literally get 'what you want'. It was a little overwhelming at first, but the staff is super helpful and the food is excellent. One of the few places that... More

The latte was great! Staff was friendly. All their food choices looked delicious. It was a bit pricey, to say the least.

We were so happy to find a delicatessen which had adequate parking for those of us who don't live or work nearby. There is parking in front and behind the Delicatessen. When we walked in it was for the first time and one of the employees saw us and welcomed us and gave us a tutorial on how ordering food... More

We were within walking distance of Elephant Deli, and visited 3 times: 2 for breakfast and 1 to pickup some food to go. On the breakfast trip, we also purchased salami and cheese, freshly cut by the server. That was a fun experience as we did a little sampling and talked for a bit about sightseeing in the area.
