We stumbled upon this place after walking a little ways from the Sheraton El Presidente. We saw people sitting on a large covered balcony on the second floor and decided to stop for a bit. There were many sweets to buy inside ... And we sat outside with cold drinks and my husband got a sandwich. I had a smoothie... More

Today I ordered a hamburger with cheese, bacon & BBQ sauce at Shaw's. It was very very good. The meat was cooked like most want it (medium), however my preference is medium-rare (they did not ask). Not only was it tasty but it even looked appetizing. The cheese on it was white, even though in the menu picture, it was... More

Lunch at Shaws was a delightful experience. It was pleasant to sit out on the terrace on a balmy Salvadorian afternoon. The salad was lovely, the onion soup excellent and the pizza crust was the best ever. We scarcely had room for a superlative chocolate creme brule, but having a few bites was a must. We also injoyed Shaw's delightful... More

I have to start by admitting I've only had dessert and coffee at Shaw's. We were at the one in Escalon near my friend's apartment. The gelato was delicious, as was the coffee. There is a huge assortment of desserts and chocolates from which to choose. We tried the vanilla almond torte, the caramel torte and the brownie cheesecake. All... More

I must say I wasn't expecting such a relaxing place at Basilea shops. Shaws was the only place opened for a late lunch and my sandwich with avocado was great!

This is little restaurant chain whose main charm is that they make their own chocolate (which is probably the best in the country), made with high quality 'criollo' cacao, and have a nice selection of desserts. Locals are nice and quiet, with bookstores in some, and service is quite good. Prices are a bit on the high end, but the... More
