Meet our chef, Khatera Shams!

Khatera Shams was born in Kabul, Afghanistan and moved to the United States in the year of 2003. She graduated from Centennial High School and went to college at Boise State University to study Criminal Justice. Her goal was to become a police officer, but then she and her sisters Bahar, Narges, and Homeyra decided to open their own business. Today at Sunshine Spice Cafe, they share their talents and create a place for the community to enjoy delicious pastries and art. Khatera is not a certified chef, but she has been cooking since a very young age. Her job at the café is to cook, bake and be a barista.
