We had a coupon from vegfest for Mirkwood & Shire Cafe in Arlington so we stopped on the way up to Vancouver to check it out. The space is multi-purpose – there is a small bar area, a stage for bands to play, a coffee counter and some tables and booths to eat at. The people working were very friendly and there were a lot of folks just hanging out inside and setting up for the show that night. This is a vegetarian restaurant, but almost everything can be made vegan with is nice. We ordered the chili burger with fries. The chili and the burger patty are house made which I like. The chili was pretty good – lots of veggies and beans though it didn’t come with much on the burger (though enough to make the sandwich messy). The burger patty didn’t have a lot of flavor by itself – just a black bean patty but paired with the chili it was tasty. The fries were just frozen reheated like you would get in the grocery store with a little bit of spicy seasoning salt.

We also tried the enchilada plate with house made green sauce. This was three corn tortillas filled with beans, soy taco meat, cheese and topped with enchilada sauce, salsa and sour cream. Served with tortilla chips. This was actually really tasty. The enchiladas tasted a lot like refried beans and the sauce was a little spicy but tasty. I like that a lot of the foods are house made instead of store bought, and then they add store bought things like the vegan cheese and such. This was all a lot of food and I would go back if I were in the area again.

Overall – Stop by and check out the Shire Cafe if you are in the Arlington area. The servers are friendly and the food tasty.
