Lunch in Ellensberg

Car trip next week will be taking us past Ellensberg at lunch time. Need recommendation for good home cooked food with fresh ingredients for lunch. Diner/cafe/bar food etc.

  1. We usually go to the Valley Cafe, which has a pretty solid menu of pastas, bistro dishes, salads, that sort of thing, plus a nice wine list. They've been there forever. Not sure what else has opened since we moved - the Tav is a popular pub, but fried food is their specialty. And sadly, Mama's Cookin' Cajun went out of business. Do stop at the Winegar's Dairy drive-thru for a milkshake, they're incredible.
