The Hidden Bay Cafe is a secret gem, open year round in an area that mostly rolls it up in winter. Good food, great service and affordable. It is worth the short drive to the end of Hayden Island to get a good meal, a free pour cocktail, andon the weekends, a great breakfast. Do it.

We were staying in Portland for a couple of days and came across this little cafe following signs from our hotel. The food was delicious and the service was on point. Nice quiet location on a harbor. The prices were reasonable too.

Love this little gem of a restaurant. Great service, good food and drinks and a location that can't be beat- right on the harbor. Love it! The coconut shrimp is the best!

Nice view of Tomahawk Bay and moored boats. One or two tables inside. Maybe five outside. Decent food. Big cooler of brew choice.

Met friends for lunch at this beautiful venue. Food was good, but they had the best long island I'd ever had. I'm such a whimp I had to wait in my car for an hour before I could drive. Very tasty and a beautiful patio view of the slips and the Columbia River.

This is a great place! The lunch menu is small, but everything is very good. The staff is always very friendly, but may not stop to chat if busy, usually only a couple people on staff. This is a small quaint place and can get a bit crowded with sailing crews meeting up before and after races.

Went for a light supper on a beautiful evening. The place is kinda hard to find if you are unfamiliar with the area. The signs are a little misleading - you turn into where the cafe is, but there are signs that it is for residents only, etc. But, I went in anyway and it was fine. I had the... More

Hidden Bay is located on Hayden Island with a spectacular view of a marina, the Columbia River and Washington State. It's as if you just traveled hundreds of miles for the perfect vacation spot. Perfect respite from a busy summer's day. Yummy drinks, tasty fresh food and the staff was attentive, patient and gracious.
