The Yellow Church Cafe In Washington Used To Be A Church And You’ll Want To Visit
We certainly have plenty of unique restaurants here in Washington, from our
Seinfeld themed eatery to a burger joint in a milk bottle. The Yellow Church Cafe is no exception — not only is it, in fact, in a former church, but both the food and ambiance are delightfully charming. This cute little place will steal your heart.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
The Yellow Church Cafe is located right in the middle of Washington, in the heart of Ellensburg.
As you can see, its bright yellow exterior makes it easy to spot.
The interior is upbeat and welcoming, which has more to do with its decor and service than its history.
The building was constructed in 1923 and spent about 40 years as a German Lutheran church. It served a few other purposes before becoming the iconic eatery it is today.
The Yellow Church Cafe serves lunch and dinner daily and offers a hearty breakfast menu on the weekends.
And no matter what day of the week it is, most of the tables tend to stay full here.
Due to its central location, the restaurant is able to source fresh food from all over the state.
You'll find plenty of classics like burgers and sandwiches on the menu, plus a rotating selection of entrees like pasta and seafood.
If you can visit on a weekend, the breakfast is well worth any wait you'll encounter.
The portions are generous, and the omelets, scrambles, and biscuits and gravy are marvelous, They even offer a great selection of vegan options.
The cafe is owned by Oscar Guition, who bought it almost six years ago.
Oscar, who was born in Mexico and has been cooking in Washington for over 25 years, also owns the Roslyn Mexican Grill. He grew up eating fresh, homemade food, and that's exactly the way he likes to cook.
The Yellow Church Cafe is open Monday - Thursday from 11 a.m. - 9 p.m.
Friday - Sunday, they open at 8 a.m. for breakfast.
