Enjoyable atmosphere. Good food. Very nice staff. Just avoid the bar late at night when college is in session, it can get obnoxious.

I tried not to rate Palace Cafe more than average because the food is pretty standard family fare. However, as I thought more about it, I realized that this is one of my favorite eateries in Ellensburg, and that this place has something more to offer than just a plate of food. It has existed for over 100 years and... More

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
