New Fall Menu Items

October brings wind and rain to Portland, but it also brings Elephants Delicatessen’s warmest seasonal menu change. Try our new meatloaf sandwich at all our locations. The classic Willamette Valley salad gets all dressed up for the holiday season. Shepherd’s pie is back at NW 22nd and Corbett, as is the “Uptown” burger with porcini steak sauce – the single greatest culinary invention of all time. Meanwhile, all three of our grill locations (NW 22nd Avenue, Corbett Avenue, and South Waterfront) are all featuring our brand new chicken Parmesan sandwich! Also, our Elephants Cure Soup has returned to all locations, ready to warm your belly!

They’re Creepy and they’re Kooky…

October scares up our famous Halloween Decorations at our flagship store on NW 22nd. You’ll find ghouls, ghosts, and goblins popping up on everything from cupcakes and candy to napkins and display pieces. Our Halloween candy display is packed with unique treats – look for more than just the ubiquitous candy corn. Scare up some chocolates and ghoulish gummies instead. Elephants carries all the tricks and treats necessary to make your Halloween party frighteningly stylish.

See the tricks and treats at NW 22nd Avenue.
