If you pass by Ellensburg at meal hour, this will be an extremely memorable experience. The location is downtown, in an older restored brick building. The historical character of the building coupled with the beautiful period images, tools, and equipment on the walls makes for an interesting visit. Our waitress, Keilin, was very nice and friendly, providing several very good... More

The Palace Café has delicious food. It also has lots of character within its historical walls. The service was great and the staff friendly. I try to eat here whenever I travel through Ellensburg, WA. Stopping for dessert alone is worth the experience! The milkshakes are thick and tasty. The décor is unique.

No matter whether you are here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The food is always good. They always have a pot of soup on and the deserts are terrific. Try the eggs benedict.

The Palace always provides a good dining experience. The food is good, the drinks are good, the restaurant is quaint and comfortable, and the service is very friendly. It's one of my go-to's in Ellensburg.

Very nice servers, the food was fine and the beer was cold. It was busy but it didn't take too long to be seated or get our food.

The food portions were good, the quality of food was good and the service was great. We had a coupon from our hotel, which we used for a (free) very large plate of loaded nachos. We were almost full before our meal arrived!

Our experience at the Palace Cafe was far from "NOT" being a disappointment. We all thought it was great. We ate there twice. Once going to Canada and also on our way home back home. Both dinners were very good. For having a young staff there the service was good and our food was serviced in a timely manner. When... More

The Palace Cafe feels like a breakfast place that accidentally spilled over into lunch and dinner. The breakfast is great. The biscuits and gravy are phenomenal (and I've lived in the South !). The Eggs Benedict are glorious. As a breakfast place, they would be rated between 4 and 5. However, lunch and dinner are a different story. Instead of... More

The staff here was very friendly and the decor is interesting; some neat history here. However the food is just ok... nothing special. Big portions but average quality. It should be the reverse of that!

I ate well, my wife less well - but it was fine overall. Small town, large pretentions! The rodeo was on everyone's mind, not the food.
