Serendipities. Yes I believe in Serendipities. And, The Yellow Church Café is it. We plan our trips now so we can eat at this fabulous eatery. This week, we stopped even though we knew we would be eating again in 2 hours. We just couldn't pass up the treat we knew we'd enjoy. I ordered the Spicey Shrimp. FAB...FABULOUS. It... More

We went to breakfast there on Mother's Day. Cute little place and such a big portion of food! All our family members enjoyed the food. There were 8 of us and we had a little private room so that was nice. If we are ever in Ellensburg again, we will definitely stop by.

My boys and I had lunch there 5/7 and even though they were busy everything was amazing. The bread was all freshly baked. The salad was crisp and fresh. They accommodated our special modifications on the order.

Friendly staff, awesome food - couldn't be any more pleased. Try the Banana Foster Waffles - not my type of breakfast but I was so happy eating this delight and so was... More

We have hardly ever gotten beyond the freeway in Ellensburg but we decided to go into town to pick up some picnic supplies for the next couple of days. So after visiting Fred Meyer I just punched the restaurant button on the GPS and The Yellow Church Café came up and it was within a couple of blocks. So we... More

Just off the main street in Ellensburg is a bright yellow church with a wonderful restaurant inside. We had never been there before even though it is within easy driving distance. The food was excellent!! I had the mac and cheese and my wife had the holey moley chicken sandwich. The food was hot and delicious. The wait staff was... More

We arrived at roughly 8:00am on a Saturday morning. We were seated right away. When I told the waitress I had read the restaurant had a decent knlowledge of Gluten Free and GF menu items, she said she was sorry to say their breakfast menu was somewhat limited in the GF department. BUT then she bent over backwards to get... More

Using Tripadvisor, we stopped at this restaurant while passing by on our way to Seattle. It turned out to be an excellent choice. My dinner started off with home made bread, seasoning and oils. Very good!. For my meal, I had the bone-in pork shank, which literally feel off of the bone. It was served with mac&cheese and asparagus. All... More

This place has true character, beauty and charm, however it's HIGHLY overpriced (at least if you're a vegetarian).
