Description: The Valley Cafe is known as one of the best restaurants in Ellensburg! This business has been continuously operated since 1930 and still retains the original Art Deco decor from its 1938 remodel. This is a farm to fork restaurant using local ingredients for a more flavorful experience. The business also features a separate juice/coffee bar that serves sandwiches, soups and salads which is adjacent to the restaurant and located within the same building.

Great art deco interior. Quick service that doesn't hover. Menu made me explore beyond my go-to meals & I was rewarded for that. Could do without the soft jazz though.

“Not Seattle”
Reviewed December 27, 2011

Inspired by West Side Cafes but defiantely not West side quality. If you live in Ellensburg long enough, you'll think this is as good as it gets. And in Ellensburg, it is. Get the Spicy Asian Prawns. Micky is the best waiter ever!!!
