“The arrival of the Simply Organic Caf has been part of a long-awaited positive food trend in Yelm. Just five years ago Yelm was a culinary backwater with a scant few good restaurants of any kind. Fast-forward, and in this past year the number of new and delicious restaurants have grown steadily along Yelm Avenue. All to the absolute delight of native patrons who couldnt quite embrace the idea of constantly driving almost an hour to Lacey or Olympia for good fresh food. Now we have a caf that has great food, inspiring values, and a growing following that I hope will spur on more growth in the food-scene in this town.
Simply Organic (105 East Yelm Ave. Yelm, WA 98597) opened up just over a month ago [July, 2011] smack in the middle of downtown Yelm. In a town dominated by Mexican food and coffee huts, it wouldnt seem that a small organic sit-down would find much success. In fact, most would imagine the Simply Organic Caf as something that would be much more at home in downtown Olympia than five minutes from cattle farms. Yet, its first month of business has gone without a hitch. Mainly due to the fact that their food is downright delicious and refreshingly affordable.”
Simply Organic is fantastic!
A definite “must-stop” for one of their great sandwiches or salads. Be sure to order the sweet potato fries!
Nice to see city hall employees patronize Simply Organic, too.
