Great deli, free parking, love this place, be it for a cookie & tea, or for a full meal. Great full menu, always flavorful, comfortable seating and excellent customer service and attentive, courteous staff. I always feel warmly welcome at Elephants Deli.

While I usually like being served breakfast (instead of ordering at counter and picking up), this place was an awesome find. Two blocks from our Portland International Guesthouse, containing everything from outstanding coffee, to a great bar with wine and other drinks. Cheeses. Cookies. Baked...More
