Shawn's has quite an extensive list of sandwiches on their menu. I was a bit overwhelmed and chose a tuna sandwich when I should have gone through the entire list and been a bit more adventurous. The tuna was good, but a bit plain. I will say the soup that I ordered with it was really good, as was the... More

Shawn's is just a great local deli and hangout. It is casual and non-pretentious and folks of all ages frequent it. The food (especially the bagels!) Is always fresh and delicious. It isn't about appearances at Shawn's, it is about friendly, hometown service and good food and coffee.

Everyone loves Shawn's. Best place for coffee, sandwiches, muffins and bagels in Sycamore. Local art And bulletin board with local happenings. Often crowded, but there are outdoor tables in good weather.

Shawn's is the quintessential small town coffee shop/bagel joint in Sycamore. The service is always fast (even at the noontime lunch rush) and the food is always yummy. I recommend ordering a soup and salad lunch basket and, if you go on a Thursday, grab a 55 cent giant cookie.

They have a very large selection of different types of sandwiches. Always fresh and friendly service. A very good alternative to the sub food chains. Pretty much the same cost too.
