Cafe By the Bay Changes Hands

Driving by Cafe by the Bay on St. Helens today, a sign in the window announces new ownership. This is a great space in a great location with one of the best views in town. Can the new ownership take things up a notch? We await the details.

Update - Sept. 29: The Bayview has filed for a liquor license to serve beer, wine, and spirits (aka booze).

I am sad to see that Gary and Hoa won't be running things. They were awesome with kids.

Tacoma Rumors,

You sure are good at spotting the latest and greatest.

Have you figured this new business out on the 900 block of Pacific Avenue out yet?

Good one Erik! I haven't seen that one yet. Is there a story behind it?

Ditto, jenyum. Sure, the owners were from Kent, but thanks to a recommendation from you long ago, my kids and I enjoyed the place and we are sure going to miss them. I wish I had gone there more often. I HOPE "taking it up a notch" doesn't mean no more treats for the kids, no more crayons, no more posting of kids' artwork, no more custom orders, portion sizes, and splitting orders, and no more down-home freindliness.

they were nice but I thought the food sucked

This was one of the Riley spaces that has sat empty for what seems like forever so it nice to see something there.
