Respond to Review of The Beet Box Cafe
by krazykat

Review: Sadly, when it comes to food for vegetarians/vegans in North Shore is still limited, either 1)salad or vegetable items from cafe/restaurants that serve meat, 2)granola, bread or pastries from bakeries, 3)shaved ice(seriously! but skip anything with red-coloring). OR, something from farmers market if you were visiting there on weekends... So, what if, I really want to go somewhere that only serves vegetarian/vegan items?This cafe is the one! I'm very glad I've found this hole-in-a-wall health food joint in North Shore amongst #s of shrimp /seafood wagons, BBQ joints, or seafood restaurants. I must have drove passed by whenever I visited North Shore via Haleiwa, never ever known this tiny cafe had ever even existed! I believe this place used to be called Paradise Found Cafe but I didn't even know anything about the former business or Celestial Natural Foods store itself either which is located just across the street from Bonzer Front, in a building right next to Wave Riding Vehicle! What was I missing here, lol, not anymore. The place is very tiny. Although you'd see the sign at the store front, the actual cafe is inside of the store, almost squeezed into the very end of property. Seating is very limited: 3 short-bars/counters and a couple of tables, so I assume it'd be packed up very quick if you go there during lunch hours. I went there in the morning right after they opened. As soon as I stepped in, the lady behind the counter told me that their beans are not quite ready yet. I ordered Zen with Tofu which is a breakfast scramble with veges,a side of black beans and rice. I also ordered Immune Booster for a drink. The drink came in few minutes. I didn't wait longer for the food despite of what the lady told me. The food was very tasty with lots of veges in it and nicely seasoned. The drink definitely served up its name, I was bit under the weather on the day but I felt energized after I had the drink. Seems they have some desserts as well but I didn't get to try one. Next time, I definitely will. For now on, this is the place for a bite when I visit North Shore, yaay:) P.S. Not so sure about parking here. I parked in a lot at a community center across the street though...
