Wow - if you like great food, reasonable prices and a FABULOUS selection of eggs benedict dishes - eat at SHINE! I had the Beckett's Benedict, and one of our party had the Polish Benedict - all were delicious. Great baked breakfast potatoes!

I went in the morning for breakfast, there were people waiting so had to wait for around 20 minutes to get a table. There are many varieties of food here but I ordered the Nemo eggs benedict. The food is decent and I enjoyed my time there. Staff is friendly but a little slow. People keep coming and the queues... More

We go here quite often. The food is consistent. There are healthy options. They keep things fresh by rotating monthly specials. The prices are reasonable by Victoria's over-priced standards. The coffee is not great as has been mentioned but it's not terrible, I drink it when I am there. The main reason that we are regulars is the staff. The... More

Three of us went to Shine for breakfast this weekend. We had to wait 15 minutes before being seated which I was expecting on weekend. I had heard such great things about this place and thought it would be worth the wait. After being seated we ordered our drinks and food at the same time. We had all finished our... More

Late morning we opted for basic Shine Breakfast, poached eggs, excellent hash browns, chrisp bacon, tomatoes - should probably have added toast for poached eggs as Nancy was a bit disappointed with her scone. Our server moved us from the windy front window seat when he had an inside table available We will be back next trip to Victoria and... More

We're in Victoria for 3 days and, after eating breakfast at Shine Cafe the first morning, will eat breakfast nowhere else. The yoghurt parfait surpasses any, with homemade granola, pecans, and amazing mango compote. My husband had the best omelette he's ever eaten, and the second day we ate there, had an eggs Benedict that could have been even better... More
