Day One: Afternoon

Lunchbox Cafe
409 N. Ruby, Ellensburg

The Lunchbox Cafe offers a delicious lunch with something for everyone, featuring vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and meat choices. Everything they serve up is locally produced, and they partner with a variety of local businesses to provide the freshest and tastiest food. The cafe is a walk-up with a covered outdoor dining area, so we recommend a bowl of their homemade from scratch soup to keep you warm.

More Possibilities:
After lunch, enjoy a fun afternoon snowshoeing or cross-country skiing. Popular places include Snoqualmie Pass, the Hyak area, and Blewett Pass along Highway 97. Or, escape the cold weather at the Clymer Museum and Gallery (416 N. Pearl St., Ellensburg).

Day One: Evening

Roots BBQ
201 W. Pennsylvania Ave., Roslyn

Roots BBQ is the go-to place for traditional Texas style BBQ. Build your meal by selecting meat by the pound and your favorite sides, or choose from one of their featured sandwiches. The fresh, flavorful meat and homemade sides make for a great meal after a full day of exploring Central Washington.

More Possibilities:
Other options for the evening include grabbing a brew at Iron Horse Brewery (412 N. Main St., Ellensburg) or heading out for an early evening trail run on Nelson Creek Trail.

Day Two: Morning

The Early Bird
108 S. Water St., Ellensburg

Enjoy a delightful breakfast at the Early Bird Eatery, offering exciting twists on traditional breakfast. The savory waffles are a big hit, and their new menu item, the Benny Bowl (potatoes, two fried eggs, diced ham, hollandaise sauce, white cheddar, and tomatoes!) is worth a try. The Early Bird may get the worm but don't worry, if you don't rise with the sun you can still get breakfast here, they serve until 2:00pm!

More Possibilities:
Or, get outdoors! The Summit at Snoqualmie (1101 WA-906) offers skiing and snowboarding, or Gingko Petrified Forest State Park (4511 Huntzinger Road, Vantage) is a great place to explore.

Day Two: Afternoon

Owens Meats
502 E. 1st St., Cle Elum

Self-described as "The Candy Store for the Carnivore," Owens Meats stocks every meat product one could imagine. Serving the northwest for over 125 years, it is thought that Owens Meats is the oldest continuously operated family business in Kittitas County. Stop in to learn about their history, buy some treats to take home, or ask for cooking tips!

More Possibilities:
Were you planning to hit the slopes in the morning? You won't want to call it an early day, block out the whole time to be on the mountain! Also, hike to scenic, Peoh Point for panoramic views of the Cle Elum Valley.
