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

Its a rare treat to get enchiladas and tacos in Himachal or even Delhi, but here the chef knows how to turn the pan in just the right way and also produce a convincing guacamole. Sol cafe seats you under a colorful canopy overlooking the Shimla valley and doesn't rush you through a lunch though there is a line of... More

Good choice of continental, italian and mexican dishes. Great taste. Friendly staff. Right near the lift at the mall road, makes it a great location. Start or end your mall road shopping spree here.

This cafe is located on The Mall next to the lift and is part of Hotel Combermere. It is set back from the road a little so can be easily missed. It was busy when we went, in the afternoon, so there was a wait involved for about fifteen minutes. There is a good selection of food on the menu,... More
