Loved our experience here. Very kid-friendly. Staff was attentive and friendly. Every dish was fantastic. Kids had the Kalua pork/rice and they all loved it. Wife had the Buddha bowl and it was super good. I had the Bihon Pancit and it was very impressive. After 2 days of sup-par restaurant experiences in Dayton, this place was a breath of fresh air. Keep up the good work guys!

We were fortunate enough to find this little cafe today. Small but immaculate and charming. The menu was different in that there
was much more than the “meat & potatoes” fare I would expect from a rural farm community. I had fish & steak fries, very good, and hubby had chicken sandwich on homemade ciabatta bread. He cleaned the plate! They tempted us with a dessert of bread pudding topped with ice cream and whipped cream. Just totally yummy. If you are in the area, you should try!

We were on a bus tour- going to Palouse Falls. Manila Bay Cafe was chosen as our lunch stop. The driver had arranged with the Cafe for our luncheon- so they were expecting us . Still it was a little overwhelming to have 18 people come in at once to you establishment. We filled all the seats except for one. Isabel was the only waitress and John was the Chef. It is a small cafe in a modern strip mall near Dayton, WA. If you have ever been there you know Dayton is a small eastern WA wheat town. I think we were the Challenge of the Day for Isabel and John.
The menu was very good and considering the location of this cafe - it was up scale. Isabel would take one tables orders and turn them in then go to another table for their orders. Things went very well. The menu was varied from Fish and Chips to a fancy salad. The orders were delivered in record time and everyone enjoyed their meal. I even had desert- a small cheese cake with a bit of lemon curd on the side topped with a raspberry drizzle. Excellent.. if you are in the area- stop in you will not be disappointed.

We had lunch here. I ordered an ahi tuna sandwich that was a cut above. My wife really liked her Buddha bowl. I highly recommend this cafe.
