The quality of the food is good but there's little in the way of good value. The portions are reasonable but not always filling. Everything is satisfying flavor wise, but I'll only grab food there in a pinch.

A friend bought me here for breakfast one morning, he hadn't hyped it up or anything, it was just a place he had eaten from time to time. I mention that because I think a lot of bad reviews come from the restaurant not living up to the high expectations that others have put out about it. No hype here though so I was coming in fairly unbiased. Also this view doesn't reflect their lunch or dinner preparations, just what I was able to get their for breakfast one morning. I got the chorizo breakfast scramble, a biscuit, and a diet lime coke. All together it cost me somewhere between nine and eleven bucks. The chorizo scramble was alright. Nothing blew me away about it in particular, but nothing I can really fault it for either. I did like that it had a decent bit of spice to it. It was made from scratch so that was nice. I was pretty disappointed by the biscuit; it was cold, dense, and totally unappetizing. Maybe it's a cultural thing and I'm just biased against it. I'm used to light, hot, and fluffy buttermilk biscuits and of course this didn't compare to that. Still, this biscuit somehow seemed to be cooler than room temperature, like it had been pulled form the fridge and was almost done thawing. Personally I wouldn't seek this place out again and I think you could probably find better fare in the area.

They deliver! I ordered lunch there for work and they were able to deliver that day in about an hours time. I had the roast balsic beef sandwich and it was fantastic. All of the food was really fresh. I haven't been inside the restaurant but I had a really good experience with their delivery option.

Gluten free salads which are prepacked and ready to go. Fairly limited selection of gluten free products, but at least there was something and it was very good.

Elephant's is excellent at what they do, so it's kind of hard to complain about the little stuff. The drink selection is top-notch. The cookies are delicious. The macaroni and cheese, especially if you come early in the afternoon, is to die for. The flow of the space is a little ridiculous ("Am I in a line right now? Oops."), but once you make it back to that hot food bar on a rainy Oregon day... Oh man. I do wish they'd post their weekly menu online, but eh, small gripes.

My favorite lunch place with good variety and awesome location. Grab some food and enjoy in the terrace of the park. Option to get "kale slaw" (a tasty variety of coleslaw with the mystical properties of kale), instead of fries. Happy hour at 3:30p gets you a buck off of a microbrew. Check it out!!

Wonderful lunch spot - easy to grab fresh salads, sandwiches and soups. It can get a little crowded around lunchtime because their isn't much space inside, so be patient or plan on heading over before/after the lunch rush.
