This place was hard to find, but well worth looking for. Very good service, lovely cakes good menu, great service and friendly staff. They have a big outdoor area which gives you great views over the valleys. Food was good and the beer was cold. Would love to go again.

Perhaps the only decent eating place on mall road. Good food, reasonably fast service. Good drink options, so hard to find beer and good food in one place. We had lunch on the mall road and in the same hotel(Combermere), the other restaurant on 5th floor ( serves Indian food). Food is bit over priced, it can cost easily 2000... More

Shimla has quite a few places where you can savour your taste buds. But in case you are looking for good continental food - undoubtedly Cafe Sol is the place for you. Located right on the mall road, it is not hard to miss. Whatever you eat, don't forget to end your meal with their special brownie. It is really... More
