When former NBA star John Salley agreed to partner with Terrance and Shiloh Thimodeaux on a restaurant, he said it has to be vegan.

“I’ve got to live with my truth,” said Salley.

Terrance and Shiloh agreed, and the result is Cafe Organix, a new vegan restaurant on Hospitality Lane in San Bernardino.

Cafe Organix serves sandwiches and breakfast items for $10-$15, as well as smoothies, coffee drinks, and juices.

The couple are entrepreneurs with an interest in holistic and CBD products. They met Salley, a Los Angeles area resident, at a product event in Hollywood and discovered they were on the same page for the kind of restaurant they wanted to bring to San Bernardino, the three said in an interview before a ribbon-cutting ceremony for Cafe Organix last week.

“Our goal is to lift up or community, and this is a great way to do so,” said Shiloh Thimodeaux. “It just made us sad every time they put up a new fast food restaurant, and we wanted to give people better options.”

“It’s an hour and 10 minutes from my house. It’s the best hour and 10 minutes,” Salley said. “I get to see the mountains, I get to see the highway, and I like it out here.”

Salley is a four-time NBA champion. His basketball career lasted from 1986 to 2002. He played with the Detroit Pistons, the Miami Heat, the Toronto Raptors and the Chicago Bulls before ending his career with the Los Angeles Lakers and another championship.
