We stopped in for late lunch. Waitress was very nice and friendly! She started us off with water, which was fine, but when she took our orders she didn't ask for anything else to drink. We also had to ask for our silverware when our orders came. Not overly busy. My fiancé had the turkey sandwich with side salad, his... More

Went in for breakfast and Joanna was our server. Service was great and attentive and the food matched that! Joanna suggested the huevos Rancheros and it was to die for! I would definitely stop in for any meal! Thanks yellow church

The service was decent, as was the food. But I have kids and they definitely do not cater to kids. We were hungry and don't like chain joints. I wouldn't go there for breakfast again, or with kids.

Great food! Small and cozy atmosphere. Small kitchen and staff so a little slow but worth the wait. Gourmet food, a real chef and a full bar, nothing better than a mimosa with breakfast! Beautiful art and remodel of an old church. staff and chef came by many times to make sure everything was perfect.

Passing through town on the way to Seattle, we found this Cafe. It didn't disappoint. Kids loved the Turkey sandwich. Bison burger was great. The iced Chai tea was perfect. We were even served by the chef!

Have only had breakfast there, but YUM! Not ONE complaint! Will go back again when in Ellensburg. Also, the artwork is great!

We always make it a point to dine at The Yellow Church while in Ellensburg. Great place for celebrating momentous occasions in our family. The food is always great and there's something on the menu for everyone. The wine list is adequate. The waitstaff are pleasant and efficient. Just one caveat: Don't go if you're just slightly hungry! The plates... More

A friend and I went there for a Sunday evening meal. Our waitress was wonderful, the church is charming. I had the trout with pea and corn risotto, my compadre had the baked chicken and we had the humus appetizer. The food was good but I thought it was a wee bit over priced, actually a lot overpriced. The trout... More

We were in Ellensburg for a statewide meeting and realized we hadn't figured out dinner plans for the group. While we didn't all need to be at a huge table, we did want to be in the same restaurant. I'd heard from a friend that the Yellow Church Cafe was good, so I email a request for 16 people for... More
