Wow....a little hole in the wall and great Vegan food. Friendly staff and quick service. Hubby had black bean Taco and I had Tempeh Tacos! Fresh and delicious. It was so cool to be able to order anything off the menu! Great selection of drinks. Fresh smoothie bar looked delicious!

Everything is outstanding-the only hard part is choosing. If you haven't tried their spring rolls-they're a must-have. The sauce is incredible!!

I had a taco salad and a smoothie. Both were totally fresh, a great mix of flavors, and nutritious and filling. Great service. A wonderful treat, especially for vegetarians.

Wow! Who knew vegan food could be so good. I had the black bean tostada and have never had better. My wife had the hummus wrap and it was top notch. The smoothie was also excellent. Neither of us could believe how good the food was.

They give you a lot of delicious food with great sauces. Get at least one spring roll; they are too good to pass up, and very colorful.

We made our second trip to shine cafe. We were here two years ago. It is still fantastic. The fresh spring rolls and acai bowls are amazing. If they could just improve the wait time, I would give them five stars.

This is very creative and delicious vegetarian cuisine. You won't find over steamed vegetables and a salad bar here. Unique meatless dishes are their specialty. You'll want to try every item on their menu, so plan on making a few visits.

I picked this cafe because of it's gluten free and vegan options but all sorts of omnivores were also enjoying breakfast here. It was fairly busy but we were able to find seating quickly, even though there are few tables in this small cafe. People were friendly and the restaurant definitely had a chill vibe to it. Food was delicious.... More
