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

The food was very good. Have eaten here several times. This last time I had the scallops and risotto, risotto was very good. Scallops were very over cooked and also noticed they appeared to be cut in half to make it appear as though there were more on the plate. Server did fix the problem and new scallops were made...

The best chocolate cake I have ever eaten was at the Yellow Church Café. Good thing I had two CWU students to share it with!

Our family has had dinner at this charming restaurant a number of times. The meals are delicious, show creativity which one would expect here. The chef makes adjustments for dietary needs which are much appreciated. We will continue to patronize this establishment. The restaurant is under new ownership (recently) and the new chef is equally creative with his menus and... More

A party of 9 had noon reservations and arrived 15 minutes early. We sat there largely unhelped for an hour until we decided to leave to go the The Palace. There were several smaller parties (3 and 4) who were being seated ahead of us, although we had been there 20 or 30 minutes longer than they had! The food... More

This is probably the best restaurant within 50 miles. Tasty breakfast with a fun atmosphere and great service. The cinnamon rolls are amazing.
