This was, surprise surprise, and old church with very excellent food and service. The Seared Rare Tuna salad was beautifully cooked and the Winter Pear Salad was well prepared with a lovely dressing. The chocolate cake was great and huge, we couldn't finish it so took the rest home.

Our group of four enjoyed this place on a Sunday afternoon. Friendly and efficient service and really decent food made us happy. Their house made bread is lovely and the cheesecake appetizer was quite good.

Having checked out of our motel, we decided to explore a little of Ellensberg and also find a spot for a snack. Happened across the Yellow Church and could not have asked for a nicer spot. Great range of food, and can heartily recommend the Sasquatch Sandwich. As per the name, this is an old church and many of the... More

Our group thoroughly enjoyed everything we ordered. Holy moly chicken sandwich with a side of delicious potato salad - had to take half of the sandwich home, it was so large. Delicious black bean soup! Great steelhead dinner as well as the pork shank. Highly recommend.

2 girlfriends and I went to Ellensburg Oct. 11th for our first time (from Seattle). While the town looked very sleepy, one of my friends had already researched our lunch spot (Yellow Church). We were not disappointed! We each got something different and all were so good! Mine was the BBQ chicken, bacon and cheese sandwich. The side of potato... More
