There are many things to like about the Sunset Cafe. I was most impressed with Jamie P who served me. It was after 8:30 so most of the dinner crowd had left, which meant she had time to visit with me. I had numerous questions about the area and she able to answer them. It was hard to choose just...

My wife and I travel between Leavenworth and Seattle somewhat regularly and when we go through Cle Elum we always stop at the Sunset Cafe. The menu options never disappoint and the food is very good! Our server, Jamie R., is always super nice and professional and makes us feel welcome. Love their omelets and they have a steak salad... More

We stop at Sunset Cafe on the way home from east side outdoors adventures. Service is always excellent, lots of variety on the menu, consistently good food. Hard to go wrong with this stop in the way back to Seattle. Special shout out to Monica for a job well done.

however, this suited us as we were pleased to have a quiet meal. The menu did not really offer much in the way of vegetarian options however, they were pleased to cobble something nice up for me. We would be happy to recommend this restaurant to a relaxed diner/cafe style meal. YMMV

There are lots of reasons to like this restaurant -- the food and service in particular (our server's name was Jamie, I think) but my chief one is the Almond Joy Pie - layered chocolate cream, coconut cream, whipped cream and toasted coconut atop a graham cracker crust. Simply the best slice of pie I've ever had. Even better, we... More

Stopped by en route to Seattle for a late lunch. Chose this place at random. Broiled salmon on the "lite fare" menu was excellent, a very large portion, cooked very well, nicely presented - would have been comfortable having this in a scaled up restaurant. BBQ hamburger had good quality meat, nicely accompanied by onion ring, tomato, lettuce. Folks here... More
