I had to make a trip to Yakima for a meeting so I asked my wife if she wanted to go with me and have a nice lunch. She said really, in Yakima. Boy were we surprised. This restaurant is as good as any we have been to. Give it a try.

Tantalizing aromas greeted my nose as soon as I walked through the door of Cafe Melange. Greeted and seated within moments of arriving later on a Saturday evening, I enjoyed the tasty chicken, artichoke, and bacon flatbread pizza with a glass of Jones of Washington Merlot at this small boutique restaurant. While the delivery of dinner was slow, it was... More

I was not expecting I would order a pizza, I never do. However, the aroma was alluring, and seeing a fellow diner's pizza was enough to change my mind. GREAT flavors held together by a light, crisp crust and fresh ingredients made my pizza dinner memorable.

We live near Seattle, Wa. There are literally scores of fine restaurants within a half hour's drive. The fact that we eagerly drive 4 hours to Yakima, a farming community in Eastern Washington, to eat here tells you what we think about it. The best prepared meals we have every had...and we are in our 650s and eat out a... More

This cafe is highly overrated. Our waiter was kind but unprofessional - didn't get us cutlery when needed, forgot parts of our order, didn't bring the wine list before we asked for it, wasn't attentive even though there were just few people in the restaurant. The menu looked really nice, but none of our orders lived up to our expectations.... More

We chose this restaurant because of the reviews, and we were not disappointed! It was busy at dinner and the staff and service were great, along with the food. Nice wine list, with a great selection of wines by the glass. The "Cheap Dates" we're delicious: bacon wrapped, cheese stuffed dates-yum! We shared a salad and pizza which were both... More

Very good food! We were traveling by Yakima around lunchtime, and couldn't be happier than this find. My chicken panini was excellent. Too bad they were out of rosemary bread.

I had a glass of merlot that was very flavorful and half price beings it was happy hour. My colleague ad I decided to order a few appetizers to share for our... More

This is a nice little restaurant with very good food. I had noodles in basil cream sauce with blackened chicken and it was very good. The servers are very attentive to your needs. It is small though and not much for atmosphere. But the prices were very reasonable so if you are looking for a good meal this is a... More

Cafe Melange is a small, up-scale, Mediterranean cafe with just about a dozen tables. Atmosphere was nice for a quiet lunch. The menu features salads, pizzas, and sandwhiches which are available for lunch. I had the lamb pizza. The size was perfect and the toppings were excellent. I wasn't really impressed with the crust of the pizza. I was expecting... More
