Busy little place just off High street. Has a usual breakfast / lunch selection, including hot cooked breakfasts. What sets this place apart for me is the delicious rye bagels and rye break available here instead of the white one. Pleasant atmosphere, decent coffee, ok service. Worth a stop if around Lower Hutt CBD.

It appears that many people have taken a shine to Shine Cafe on Waterloo Road. This was my first visit and it was full to the brim on a beautiful day during Christmas week.

The cabinet food looked very appealing (and there were several gluten free options), as well as quite a few tempting options on the blackboard menu. Unfortunately I wasn't able to choose anything that was both dairy and gluten free which was disappointing. The only reason why I have given this review 3 stars is because I was unable to eat the food!

It is quite a compact cafe and as we were seated right in the middle of the dining space I had to move my chair on several occasions to let people by. The coffee was well made and came out quickly considering the number of diners.

What I liked most about the experience was a slip of paper that is given along with your coffee with a saying/quote on one side, and then a quick survey on the other. It asked for feedback on one thing they could improve on and what you enjoyed about your experience. This is a point of difference and I was impressed with the initiative. It's a very quick and easy way to receive feedback. Well done Shine Cafe!
