Here's the tables we bought. As it turns out, with the bench it would have been better to have tables with a single base (restaurant style) instead of tables with 4 legs. You tend to hit the leg getting in and out from the bench. But, it works ok. And we couldn't find any restaurant style tables we liked. The middle table is from Circus Furniture. It's a 59"x35" cappuccino colored table. It came with the 4 chairs for $500. The other two small tables were less than $150 for the pair, ordered online from Target. They are 29.5"x29.5, and the color is espresso. The small tables are the exact same style, but just a tiny shade lighter and redder than the larger table.

One of the great things about Ikea cabinets is that you can add extra shelves, and the shelves are adjustable. I was able to put 4 shelves in this cabinet, and keep all my different kinds of plates separated.
It's very easy to add the shelves. There are pre-drilled holes in the cabinet that you put little metal pegs into, and the shelves rest on the pegs.
