I stopped in with work colleagues on the advice of one in our group. It was suggested that I have the lunch special, half a sandwich, cup of soup, AND a cup of salad.

This place is truly a wonderful find. The coffee is really good. The foods are fresh, reasonably priced, and flavorful. The best part, to me, is that it is possible to be super healthy here.

An unexpected find in Yakima - an authentic artisan bakery with every sweet meat you can possibly want to eat, including croissants, biscotti, macaroons, and pastries. Fresh baked breads and lattes, too, plus breakfast sandwiches and fresh fruit cups.

Essencia has an amazing array of pastries, croissants (many with different fillings-ham and cheese -delish!), and other yummy goodies. It was a great place for a morning coffee and pastry.

Essencia has the best breakfast and lunch items! Even when you select the healthier choices (and somehow avoid the amazing looking treats in the case!), items are full flavor and delicious!

We enjoy going here for breakfast. We definitely enjoy the pastries. The coffee is ok, but not amazing. It's definitely worth visiting for a feel of downtown Yakima and a god pastry.

Essencia is a really great place if you love to eat sweet things, especially pastries. The one with pecan is absolutely divine.
