Reviewed 28 December 2013

We went on a random Monday afternoon in December and they were cleaning up with all the food packed away.

“Delicious. Authentic Puerto Rican food.”
Reviewed 15 December 2013

My best friend is Puerto Rican, and this was just like his mom's cooking. Fantastic food, very casual atmosphere and the cheapest most filling lunch on the island. Highly recommend.

“Perfect for lunch! Best deal in town .”
Reviewed 11 October 2013

Get there as close to 11am as possible. Once they run out of a dish, it's over!!! However all the food stays hot and fresh.

“Food cafeteria”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

For what it is, a mid day weekday cafeteria, it can't be beat for money and reasonably tasty food. They pull it out of the kitchen so fast the food does not have time to get old. Very popupar with locals. The best of the budget places to eat in Isabel II.

“Instant Gratification”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

The spelling on the sign is Shaunaa's and in the phone book is Shauna's but Shawnaa's seems to show up more. This is a spotlessly clean, air conditioned, hard to find parking little island cafeteria that typically has veal, pork chops, fish, and baked chicken, beans and rice, fried plantains, and a small selection of ice cream all freshly prepared (except the ice cream which is in bulk) and ready to go. The staff are in clean, fresh uniforms and greet you with a warm Hola or Buen Dia. You can get the food to go or eat in. Every time I have been there the owner (?) Manuel has been in the dining area and takes a hands on approach to making sure everything runs smoothly and is clean and tidy. One of my favorite places on the island to go for quick, fresh food. One person with drink in the neighborhood of $10.
