Adorable little restaurant with fantastic food. We tried five different dishes for dinner and all were delicious. The Mac and cheese with bacon was amazing. Creamy and rich! Worth every penny!

We stopped for lunch as we were traveling across the state. What a great decision! The Holy Moly Chicken sandwich was divine, the bread indescribable...cheesy, soft, mmmm....but then came the carrot cake. WOWZA!! Don't tell my arteries what just happened!! A tremendous slab of mind blowing perfection, with a drizzle of caramel and a dollop of whipping cream! And NO... More

What a unique place with wonderful food. The place was packed--wait was as told --20 minutes for a Sunday brunch--not bad for 6 people. Food was fabulous. The servers were hustling the entire time--they could use a bit more help. But service was still acceptable. Food was magnificent--hash to die for!

We ate here while traveling from Seattle to Spokane. We enjoyed the unique setting and tasty food, and they were able to accommodate our gluten restriction.

While in town visiting family, dinner at The Yellow Church was suggested. What a fun place to dine. Service was excellent. Each entree ordered was delicious. Take time to enjoy the unique building.

Stopped by the Yellow Church for Lunch on a recent trip to Spokane and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the vibe of the place even though the service was a bit slow. My wife and I shared the Build Your Own Combo which consisted of salad, soup, quiche and "heavenly bread" and the Sasquatch Grilled Cheese Sandwich which was made... More

If you want to try a nice local spot rather than the fast food offered just off the freeway, venture a few more blocks to The Yellow Church Cafe. Well prepared sandwiches, salads, soup, quiches. The baked goods look great. Funky vibe.

The Folks are Friendly and You are made to feel welcome and never rushed. The food is wonderful, we went for lunch and their sandwhiches are to die for!

The yellow church of cheesy bread is the tastiest organized religion. Go there and imbibe on the gastronomic wonder that is the holy bread of cheese,

We are privileged to have some of the best farmers on the eastside of Washington State, including some of the best wines and microbrews. To insure quality and freshness we work with local seasonal ingredients, we focus on baking all our bread daily, cutting our own meats and using only the freshest ingredients.
