So how did I rate their organic vegan dishes? Lets just say I will be heading back for seconds and thirds! The food is amazing and the people you meet there are just as delicious! (Stephanie is the owner of Shine cafe and she is also responsible for the amazing dressings.)
The dishes served at the Shine Cafe are, fresh, exciting, healthy and satisfying. And that's because they use the highest quality of whole ingredients that nourish your body and soul. Components that taste amazing and help your body function at its very best.
I highly recommend The Power Pita because the hummus has a perfect balance of garlic and middle eastern spices. And it’s served with fresh greens and shredded carrots that are so sweet they could easily double as candy, topped with a cilantro dressing that is so creamy you wonder how in the world do they do that without cream! I also recommend the fresh spring rolls that come with the ginger sesame dressing. They are so fresh and the made from scratch dressing is exceptional. The creaminess of the avocado marries perfectly with the dipping sauce.
Amongst my other favorites are the Famous Tempeh tacos. A truly satisfying and hardy dish. And that's because they use high protein soft taco tortillas topped with avocado, quinoa, fresh green spring mix, carrots and home made salsa. Yum! The daily soups are always incredible. At the Shine your allowed to have a sample of the soup prior to ordering. But trust me your going to want a bowl of it every time!
They also have an array of smoothies my personal favorite is the Mudslide. Bananas, almond butter, Carob, Dates and Almond milk. A new addition to the menu is the avocado smoothie. It is a surprisingly delicious treat. I have friends from Brazil that swear by avocado smoothies but this was my first sip and won’t be my last! The treat includes avocado, almond milk and agave. Yum!
If you’re going to be in the area a stop at the Shine Cafe is a must. With nothing on the menu over $10- you can’t afford not to. And while your there have a look at the local art on the walls. Feel free to ask the locals for advice they are friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Map of Morro Bay and directions via Mapquest!
