Found it quite expensive but the food was nice. Service was average. Took a little while for the food to be served but it was quite busy.

The Yellow House Cafe is always busy and you can be sure of a good coffee and meal - if you pick the right one. Some of the combinations don't fit well such as cottage cheese in the chicken burger, under seasoned and added nothing...More

Prompt service. Good coffee. Eggs benedict was up there. Haloumi stack was nice. Pleasant setting and decor. We liked the art.
