A Leavenworth Tradition Since 1980
The Big Y Cafe got its famous name
from its original location, at the Y Junction of Highway 2 and
97, where it first opened for business back in 1939 and has been
a meeting place for the community, families and travelers
throughout the years.
In 1980, Helen and Kay bought the Big Y Cafe and in 1984 moved
the restaurant to its current location. The Big Y Cafe has been
serving "good home style cooking. homemade pies and daily
specials" ever since. Helen is now serving her fourth generation
of families and welcomes you, your family and friends to her
family style restaurant where service is our specialty.
During your visit with us we invite you to enjoy our good home
style cooking made fresh daily and served to you with warm and
friendly hometown smile.
The Big Y...where friends have meet friends for generations.
