“We still come back here after trying the others”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2013

A pretty decent place. Older decor but it sort of matches Ellenburg. Really a great breakfast. Reliable lunch and dinners. They have pretty good soups and chili. Best chocolate milk shakes I have had in awhile (someone stopped in for one to go while we were leaving). We have tried some other places but keep coming back here--old reliable!

“Mmmmmmmmmmmmm”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013

I have ben dining in this restaurant since the early 70's. I am not a resident of Ellensburg but stop here everytime we are within 50 miles. We find the breakfast wholesome and a great value. The lunch specials are also yummy. If ever in Ellensburg stop and give the Palace Cafe a try!!!

“Great Menu Choices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 31, 2013

Palace Cafe is pretty perfect. They serve breakfast on the weekends, which my husband and I frequent, and we always enjoy the dinner service.

The menu doesn't vary much besides the seasonal sandwiches. Still, the food is really good! The strawberry lemonade is SO good and the red velvet cake is delicious too!

“best breakfast going!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2012

Don’t miss this place! After dozens of trips to Ellensburg, my husband and I finally tried the Palace, and we’re kicking ourselves for all the wasted times eating breakfast elsewhere. A great menu, with farm-fresh eggs and more-than-ample-sized servings make this the best choice for breakfast, complete with delicious freezer jam for your toast. Definitely worth the drive into town!

“Good food and excellant service.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 10, 2012

Just read a poor review from a co-worker who used to live in Ellensburg, and was surprised. We visited out friends there recently for the threshing bee and took them to dinner at their request (it is their favorite place), and were pleasantly surprised. Only one of us ate beef, because we just do not, but the food was fair to good, and the service was as you would expect from any busy restaurant on a Friday night. I know better restaurants in Des Moines and Burien, but they were definitely competitive.
