“Too bad!”
Reviewed August 8, 2013 via mobile

The servers try hard, but the owner/manager is a nightmare (I have seen her be rude, unfriendly, moody, and treat employees badly over the course of several visits). Too bad because this little neighborhood place would have a lot going for it if it was more professionally managed.

“Totally Unexpected and Delicious!”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I grew up in this neighborhood and there is definitely a lack of eateries that you actually enjoy spending time in. 32 Shea is adorable! They've done a great job making their odd strip mall parking lot location work. Trendy. Delicious. Nice patio. I had a cobb salad that was great, dad and boyfriend had sandwiches that they both loved. I am glad this place is here!

“Great neighborhood bistro!”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

My wife and I frequent 32 Shea several times a month. It is close to home, relaxing on the heated patio, and the food is nicely prepared. Small but sufficiently varied menu and wine list. It works for us as well as several friends. See you there!

“local bistro”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

We go here all the time. Check facebook every nite to see what's for dinner (entree of the moment). Bartender Josh is fabulous and waitress Darcy is also great. Lovely local gem of a place. Great food/drinks/people/atmosphere. The outside patio is a little oasis; comfy cozy place. The chef is doing an amazing job with mixing up the variety for the evening entrees. It's a local female owned and operated place that deserves your visit.

“Great place to sit outside and enjoy the sun!”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

32 Shea or Cafe32 as we like to call it is a neighborhood hang out. Are you commuting home from downtown Phoenix and want to stop with some friends for happy hour? Then get off the I51 on Shea and try Cafe32. Yes I live nearby. And it took me YEARS to actually stop but I have been pleasantly surprised twice now. Once for dinner and once for lunch.
Sitting outside and enjoying a very good lunch was down right pleasant. Food was excellent.
Happy hour was lovely too. Great appetizers and wine and drinks. They also have one special every night that is not on the menu. Changes every night and can be food from India, Italy, Germany, whatever the chef feels in the mood for.
And I have not tried the drive-thru coffee window but I can imagine it's just as good as lunch and dinner was.
Excellent hangout!
