About Shine Café
Opened in August 2012, the café offers meals, snacks and beverages to staff and visitors. Daily food preparation ensures optimal freshness for tastier, healthier dining. It has a pleasant, tree-lined courtyard, and an airy, spacious inside dining area. Visitors can watch the large wall-mounted TV or read books on the comfy lounge. The café also provides a catering service for off-site functions.
Shine Café also provides training for inmates in hospitality skills that will prove valuable in obtaining employment upon release. Importantly, it is a source of ongoing funding for SHINE for Kids.
Shine Café is within the Silverwater Correctional Complex on Holker Street but, like the Child and Family Centre Silverwater, is outside the secure area. To get to the café, go from the main entrance or visitors’ parking through the boom gates and down the hill to the prison staff parking area. The café and its walled courtyard are easily visible to the left at the roundabout.
