A vegetarian/vegan oasis near the University of Houston, Sunshine’s Health Food Store & Vegetarian Deli offers an expansive menu with daily specials ranging from spaghetti to enchiladas and nachos. The regular menu offers vegan burgers, po’ boy sandwiches, wraps, deli-style sandwiches, soups, smoothies, and fresh juices. For a small store, the menu is very extensive and can be almost overwhelming. All food is made to order, and vegan desserts are also available. There interior of the restaurant has ample seating, but all menu items are also available for takeout. Lunch prices average from $6-9 and smoothies are generally in the $4-5 range. This family-owned store is staffed by the owners, who are friendly and knowledgeable and glad to help you make a choice. It should be noted that the only gluten-free options are salads; gluten-free breads are not available. I ordered the avocado po’boy and a ginger-apple lemonade. I was completely overwhelmed by the size of the sandwich! It had great flavor with lots of spices, and there was no way I could finish the amount I was served. The ginger-apple lemonade was tasty and different than anything I had tried before, but also quite spicy! Sunshine’s is a great choice for vegans and vegetarians looking for a large menu of creative options.
