Happiness Cafe

Updated: Jun 8

Happiness Cafe offers delicious dining and takeout to San Jose, California. This restaurant is known for "its modern interpretation of classic dishes and its insistence on only using high quality fresh ingredients." They provide a wide variety of menu items ranging from snacks, salads, rice and noodle, sandwiches, specials; to desserts, cold drinks, espresso drinks, teas, smoothies and more.

One thing to note is that they are closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays (as of August 2022) so make sure to check their website for updated hours.

Once I arrived to Happiness Cafe, I decided to order the Happiness over Rice and Avocado Rolls. The Happiness over Rice comes with pineapple, red pepper, onion, vegan chunk, broccoli, house special sweet and sour sauce, served over brown rice for the price of $14.75.

This had everything I look for in a bowl style dish! I loved the house special sweet and sour sauce especially mixed in with the rice, veggies, and vegan soy chunks. I highly recommend this as a first dish to try when visiting Happiness Cafe!

Another great food item under the category "snacks", the Avocado Rolls are a must. For $9, the Avocado rolls come with roti, cabbage, carrot, vegan strip, and fresh avocado. For those who aren't familiar with roti, its a flaky, round, flatbread that is native to the Indian subcontinent.

Other items on the menu that I had my eye on and would recommend in the future include Tofu Strip with Brown Rice, Noodle Soup, Pesto Grill Sandwich, Pesto Pasta and Grilled Strips, and Waffle Nuggets.

The Tofu Strip with Brown Rice contains tofu, tomato, vegan strip, onion, broccoli, carrot, and cilantro served over brown rice. $11.95

The Noodle Soup comes with wheat noodles, soy protein, daikon, bok choy, green onion, cilantro, and pickled cabbage. $11.95

The Pesto Grill Sandwich comes with vegan strips, pesto sauce, lettuce, tomato, and organic bread. $10.50

The Pesto Pasta comes with basil, garlic, olive oil, pine nuts, vegan parmesan cheese, vegan strips, and fresh tomato. $12.50

Beyond their extensive food menu, they also have a wide variety of beverages and desserts that I have yet to try.. however, this area of the menu will be included in my next visit to Happiness Cafe.

Some notable Tea Beverages that I'm eager to try include Lavender Green Tea, Lavender Milk Tea, Lychee Green Tea, Rose Tea, and Thai Iced Tea. $4.50-$4.75

Some smoothies that we need to try are the Avocado Smoothie, Taro Smoothie, Lychee Smoothie, Happiness Smoothie (Mango, Pineapple, Coconut Milk), and the Avocado Durian Smoothie. $5.75-$6.25

I can continue on with the list of things to try here like the specialty drinks, espresso drinks, herbal teas, fresh juices, and ice cream.... BUT I think I have tempted you all enough already to make your way over to Happiness Cafe because I'm already planning my next visit as well!
