The Shaw Cafe has a great location, in the middle of a lot of small shops, and near the theaters. Lots of flowers surround the outside seating area, and when we ate there, even some live cello music. The food was all very good. The...More

The Shaw Cafe is a really cute place, fun to sit out on the patio. The food was good, not great, and the service was good.
