Clean, pleasant settling with both indoor and outdoor seating. Venison burger tasty and cabinet food also nice and served with reasonable sized salad. Good coffee and pretty quick service given that it was quite busy.

Visit to yellow house for lunch was awesome! Delicious food, friendly staff (Pete is always amazing). Coffee is nice and the atmosphere is relaxing. Yellow house has definitely regained some if it's former glory!
