Located in historic downtown Ellensburg this gem offers great soup, salads and sandwiches along with local brews. Friendly service and tasty food at a reasonable price. Wonderful homemade clam chowder and the hot pastrami is very filling. Worth checking out for a quick lunch stop....More

Traveling home on I-90 and needed lunch. So tired of fast-food. Looked up lunch stops in Ellensburg and found a gem. Great soup and sandwiches. Warmed me up on a cold January day. Not far off the Highway check it out!
