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.

This is a Vegan place and have great healthy options. Their unique juices and smoothies deserves a special mention as well. Usually the healthy places i have been have been bland and not that flavorful but this place rocks. Nice people to talk to. We went there for lunch and breakfast (weekend only) , loved the Tofu scramble BF, their... More

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

We really wanted a vegetarian restaurant and found this one near our hotel so walked over. Music blasting so loud it was difficult to speak. No signs of how to sit, no hostess. Nobody came to our table after five minutes. No instructions posted if you should go over to cash to order or if there was a server in... More

A delightful eatery--funky atmosphere :-) A great place for new-to-vegan-eating, like me! and vegan veterans. A smoothie bar is in an area by itself, and it's worth the wait for every piece of fresh produce to be peeled and juiced! There is a lot of variety on the breakfast and lunch-only menu. You order at the counter to eat in... More

I stopped in here and had a great late lunch. The ambiance is cozy and friendly. The food is straight up delicious. A little gem not to be missed.
