May News and Specials

Vann's Italian Pie

May is blooming! It's officially patio season. Time to relax with a glass of rosé. New burgers are hitting our grills, and our catering team is busy celebrating graduations and planning weddings. The smell of BBQ is in the air. And there are events aplenty--including a big anniversary bash for Elephants. Settle in with a glass of rosé wine and think of all the delicious days you have ahead of you.

Shake season is here

It’s strawberry-basil milkshake season! This is no ordinary strawberry milkshake. We start with Ruby Jewel’s strawberry ice cream. We add our own homemade strawberry jam. Then we add milk, but we also add crème fraiche. And for the finale: fresh basil. Blend, baby, blend.
We all scream for the dessert bar menu at NW 22nd Ave.

May pizza special: Vann's Italian pie

Let’s take a closer look at Vann’s Italian Pie. Keeping with the colors of the Italian flag, we have mozzarella, spinach, salami, roasted red pepper, Parmesan and garlic olive oil. Mangia!
Enjoy Vann's Italian Pie at Elephants on Corbett or Elephants at NW 22nd.

Dilly deli soup is back

You asked for it, and it's back: Dilly Deli Pickle Soup. It's creamy, rich with vegetables, and spiked and flecked with dill pickles. It's here for May, and then it will be gone until next year. As always, you can try any and all of our soups before you buy. So ask us for a taste!⠀
Available at all Elephants locations and through corporate lunch delivery.
