Palace Cafe offers a large menu with something for everyone. Prices were a little high for what you get, but the food was decent, the service was good, and the atmosphere was clean and inviting. I had the blue cheese wedge salad and, while it was a bit overdressed, it was delicious! I would go back just for that. Palace... More

Just passin' thru and the hotel recommended the Palace we're glad they did. The decor was rustic Northwest, and our server was outstanding with helping us make our menu choices. Located in downtown you can take a nice walk before or after you eat/drink.

This historical establishment was recommended to us, and it did not disappoint. The food was all delicious and the service was spot-on. There were some interesting historical photos along the walls leading to the restrooms. Well worth a look!

Right in the downtown area, older building, booths are a bit tight for 4 people and they try to crowd in as many booths as they can. Not a comfortable meal when you are bumping elbows the entire time. The stuff were all friendly, place was clean, Food was OK, nothing that special really, I'd probably go somewhere else next...

If you like down home cooking and family favorites this is a great stop on any trip. They have great customer service and big booths to sit in and relax with friends and family. The food is excellent and well priced. I had the club sandwich and my family and friends each had something else. Everyone was happy and full... More

So we arrived here late on Sunday (within a half hor of closing) but we were still treated the same as if it weren't near the end of the day. Great customer service. Our water was kept full. Pleasantly surprised with how affordable dinner ended up being. Under 30 bucks with 2 entrees and a coffee (good coffee too with... More

We arrived for a late dinner, but still were treated as it were regular dinner hour. Was greeted quickly and assisted by a cute young energetic waitress. She knew the menu well and answered all questions of food offerings. Coffee was great as they serve Pioneer coffee from Cle Elum. Prices were surprising good for dinner, seafood and steak options...

This restaurant has the most delicious foods. You can purchase a meal for around $10.00. The food is scrumptious. I love the atmosphere. It is relaxing and private. I love your coffee. I believe there are two restaurants in Ellensburg that have the best waiters and waitresses. You don't have to ask for anything. They are on top of it.... More

Breakfast is the only meal I find tolerable here. The couple of times I've had lunch or dinner here have been disgusting. Breakfast is decent (though not exceptional).
