Yellow Church Café




The Yellow Church Café was built in 1923 as a church for the German Lutherans. Since then, the building has served many purposes and is now a restaurant. We believe that food, friends and fellowship go hand in hand. We strive for excellence.

MEET CHEF OSCAR GUITRON


I was born and raised in Caualtla, which is a small town located in the mountains of Jalisco, Mexico. As a child our family grew and raised all of their own food, all natural and organic and harvested all the wild edibles in the area as well. Coming from a large extended family, all took part in cooking for the household in some way. I found I enjoyed helping my grandmother prepare the food we ate, I also realized that I developed a sense of pride by growing my own vegetables, fruits and livestock; so started my culinary journey and my personal theory on how and why we should prepare and enjoy the local seasonal ingredients available to us in Washington. I moved to Washington in 1993, I started working in the restaurant industry as a dishwasher/prep cook and quickly worked my way up the culinary ladder, finally achieving an Executive Chef position. I have hands-on experience in both 5 star hotels and restaurant settings, Classically trained in French cuisine I have a mastery of: Mediterranean, regional Italian dishes, Spanish, and Asian cuisine as well.

After the past 20 years of working for small businesses to large corporations I was offered the opportunity to purchase my own business, The Yellow Church Café in 2013 and the Roslyn Mexican Grill in 2016. Transitioning from working for someone to working for myself has been both challenging as well as rewarding. This opportunity has allowed me to travel, gaining more knowledge about regional cuisine here in the U.S. as well as giving me the chance to offer others assistance to create better culinary experiences for their customers and providing them with insight on how to operate their facilities more effectively. When you are in the position of working for yourself food cost and labor are much more of an up close and personal issue, creating a satisfied customer base becomes your number one priority and being experienced enough to handle these challenges knowing that the decisions you are making is for your own business is the greatest reward.
