Consistently Yummy!

Breakfast, lunch or dinner always good. I love the Tuna appetizer and I do not recommend the Nachos. Other than that a big hit!

My first time having their dinner and it was just as good as breakfast! We've been eating breakfast here when we're in town since as long as I can remember (at least 35 years). This was the first time we had dinner at the Palace. I wish I had tried it sooner! All of 5 of us were extremely happy... More

If you are looking for consistency and delicious food, you need to go to the palace. their eggs benedict is the best in the state and beyond.. Everything on the menu is great and always prepared to perfection. You can't go wrong with anything on the menu. I highly recommend this establishment!!!! The lounge has the best martini's in town!

If you are passing through Ellensburg on I-90, don't stop to eat near the freeway. Continue north to the city center, grab some free street parking, and head for the Palace Cafe in the Pearson Building on Main Street. It has been around since 1892 and still does a brisk business of hearty, good American food and lots of it.... More
