Built in 1923, this converted church is a dining sanctuary worth singing about. The Yellow Church Cafe in Ellensburg is an Eastern Washington treasure that bakes bread daily, hand cuts locally sourced meats and serves homestyle meals all day. For a marriage of traditional breakfast waffle and favorite dessert, try the bananas foster waffle with banana-rum caramel sauce. For the extra hungry, the manastash corned beef hash with slow-braised corned beef and potatoes, eggs and biscuits will fuel the tank for twenty-four hours. Lunch offerings include a collection of small plates, salads, sandwiches and burgers, including a half-pound bison burger or steak beef burger. Dinner is where The Yellow Church shines with herb-crusted rack of lamb, Idaho red trout and a bone-in Snake River Farms pork shank. As its motto goes, “welcome to our little slice of heaven.”
