Darling restaurant. Came here because of the reviews and will have to concur, this place is great! Food came out hot, was plenty to eat, and the ambience was charming. It is also a BNB. The pictures of the room look wonderful, so would consider staying here as well. Great find 👍

This restaurant is in an old house and is very charming! They have books from the White House on the mantle. I have only ever ate there for lunch, and had sandwiches and soup. The food is made fresh every day and is excellent.

Very limited menu. Food made from scratch and pricey. Very limited seating, although they will prepare food for take out. Not the place for a business lunch. Overrated in my opinion, but then I am not a local.

One of my favorite Yakima food spots. IT's a quaint little old house, I think used as a bed and breakfast. Excellent food! Great for breakfast or lunch. Plus they have delicious baked treats. You can also use them for catering an office lunch. Highly recommend!

I'm reviewing breakfast because that's when I go here. I'm a regular for Sunday morning breakfast. I've eaten all over the world, orient excluded, and I have to say that I'm hard pressed to think of too many other places that are better for breakfast. There are a few, but only in San Francisco and New Orleans that I know... More

This was a great place to go for breakfast. It was so warm and cozy. We showed up without a reservation, and they very graciously seated us in a nice sunroom. Our server was very attentive, the special that day was an egg scramble with fresh fruit and the most delicious pumpkin muffin we had ever had. I highly recommend... More

Some places transport your to another place time... and the White House Cafe does exactly that. This charming bed-and-breakfast is the perfect backdrop for a special occasion or an everyday treat. In addition to relishing a warm, inviting and lovely environment, each dish is like a work of art. My favorite is the chicken salad, which is both fresh and... More

We came here on a lazy afternoon for a quick lunch and what we found was exactly what we are hoping for! The White House café sits, literally in a small white house on the east side of the business park. There are three dining area, one main one and two ancillary rooms. We have the pleasure of sitting in... More

This is a favorite spot for small meetings or a special breakfast with friends. The cottage is decorated in shades of white. The food is delicious, plentiful and beautifully presented. I love to come here for breakfast or brunch.

The White House has a limited, but excellent menu that will not disappoint. I really enjoy meeting friends here during the summer, as they have a great patio. Also a bed and breakfast, they serve an excellent breakfast (get the option with the pastry or treat, otherwise you might regret it!) and lunch. My friend had her bridal shower there... More
