10/10 recommend Shades Cafe! The food was so fresh & delicious with very reasonably pricing. Will definitely be returning with more friends and family! Sooo good. (Pictured is the Shades Hash) Also had a cinnamon roll that was so soft and fluffy with the perfect not super sweet cream cheese frosting. YUM . If you’re on the fence , go!

Feels like the only place you can get an amazing quality pancake breakfast in San Marcos. If you’re looking for a quiet place that’s got charm and amazing service look no further! This is our new favorite place!

My family and I just had our Thanksgiving meal at Shades and I cannot brag on this restaurant enough. We had a separate room for our family and the food was absolutely superb!!!! I wish I had taken pictures. The owner Lori and her staff are the best and they took excellent care of us. Lori sent me a whole list of possible sides and desserts to choose from and the cost was very reasonable. Not one member of my family complained. As a matter of fact they were all talking about how great the food was and that maybe we should have Christmas there. If you ever need a gathering place for your friends or family this is definitely the place to go! I eat at this restaurant all the time and it has that small time friendly feel to it with great food. In addition, it has a very nice shop in the front of the restaurant where you can get cute gifts.
