The Flying Elephant usually has 4-5 types of salads, hot entrees and sandwiches that are ready to grab and go. Remember that you are not through security yet so skip the drinks and get them on the other side. If you are on your way...More

Big selection of pre-made sandwiches, salads & take-out items; also offers selections from a hot-food bar. Food bar less appealing in the evening since the several of the selections have been sitting for hours.

and very Portland. The selection is great, package goods, lunches in the cooler. Also a hot bar, but the counter is too high and I have trouble ordering and getting my food. Great soup and coffee along with Steve Smith teas.

I don't give favorable reviews for sandwiches easily. I'm a born and bred New Yorker and am a Jew wannabe. The pastrami shined in this sandwich. It wasn't overpowered by all the other stuff as is typical from r a Reuben.

A nice little fast-food restaurant across from powell's books in the pre-security area of the airport. One hint that it's good is the many airport employees grabbing food to eat. Everything is already prepared but fresh. The cafeteria style hot food looked good -- I...More

We always stop here for food before a trip, and often afterwards. Their Willamette Valley Salad and Shelly's Vegan Wrap (chopped kale/grapes/etc.) travel extremely well on my 8 or more hour flights. And Mama Leone's soup is the absolute chicken soup you'll ever have --...More

My "go to" sandwich for the plane is a Jambon and cheese in a baguette roll. No mayo to go bad. The rol is always crisp and no offensive aromas for your seat mates to worry about. I used to love the dried tomato and...More

Once I got over being overwhelmed by the wide variety of foods (mostly sandwiches, soups, & wraps) and the rush of people grabbing left & right, the food actually was pretty good. We had 6-7 people to buy for and it wasn't the easiest set...More
