A lovely clean air conditioned cafe however our chicken was dry and rice and beans were cold. Service was excellent and friendly and portions were generous but I have had better local food at other places.

the menu is predictable and always satisfying. Lunch only but I sometimes save it for dinner. excellent home cooking of local cuisine. local working lunch crowd mostly. The people that work there are so friendly. I really like them. They seem so genuine. like going to your aunts home.

Food is ok, prices are kind of high for what it is... Simple Puerto Rican food, not great, not bad.... I would try other places first....

We went to Shawnaa's after having gotten to Vieques and were delighted with the food. The place was filled with locals which is always a good sign! We had chicken and fries and fried plantains which I waited a half hour for but was worth EVERY minute of the wait!

Shawnaa's has the best local food in town with reasonable prices. Food is cooked everyday and the menu changes by day. It is cafeteria style, so you see what your are ordering. Friendly staff. You can call in and place an order for take out.

Had the chicken and rice with fried plantain for lunch. It is cafeteria style but the food tasted fresh and the price was reasonable. Staff was friendly and spoke enough English to understand exactly what we wanted and answered any questions. Good place for lunch or quick dinner, they do deliver, and average Spanish food .

Shawnaa's is a great place to stop for a quick bite while you're Isabella. You will not leave hungry! The portion are generous! They serve typical Puerto Rican foods. There were four of us there the day we ate at Shawnaa's and we all got different meals. We all left happy (and very full)!
