This is the best breakfast in town. Stop in grab a cup of coffee and order a heavenly loaf. You're gonna want to order one to go.

First the food is superb, the atmosphere is friendly and the service is great. We needed to have baby food heated in the microwave for 20 seconds for our toddler. The owner did it herself and even gave a big home-made cookie to our 6 year old. The homemade bread was warm and fresh and came out with oil and... More

I loved this small quaint delight. My husband didn't. He ordered the bison burger. Flavor was good but it was del8vered on a cutting board instead of a plate. Very messy since it was all over the table. I had the sun dried tomatoe linguini. It was delicious. Would definitely recommend it. It is very cute but cramped.

What is quaint, charming and cute for some can also be cluttered, dirty and disjointed for others. The lighting was dull and had penal system feel to it. Some fresh white paint would Alleviate the acid trip colors that are on the walls. They have a pastry case that looks like a holding tank for bacteria. Public eating places should... More

My vegan friends her is a place that meat eaters will also stop at. This place is great, the Italian pasta was excellent. This is a place not only a person with certain dietary restrictions will stop. But anyone who loves amazing food.

when I first went there was 2012, food was very good, much better than other places in Ellensburg; pricy, but at least it was good. I went there again in Feb last year and the quality was obviously lower: Some Food Good, Others Not So Much!. Ordered: Bison Burger: very juicy, but nothing complemented each other! that cheese and burger... More

Stopped in for lunch after watching Daughters Rugby game at CWU Food was very good and the service was excellent. It is a small place so you might have to wait for a table- but we got lucky and got seated right away.

My friend and I stopped here for breakfast on our way to Glacier Montana. It was a little tricky to find since my friend doesn't have GPS but I'm glad we did! We got there right as it opened. The woman who owns/runs the place waited on us and was very pleasant and friendly. The food was scrumptious (my poached... More

We had dinner at the Yellow Church based on reviews. It's a very tiny space, and definitely full of character. They had a steelhead special the night we were there & it was delicious, they also have delicious bread & baked goods.
