Shimla unfortunately has a dearth of good eating places in mid-range, and Cafe Sol is one of the few places available. I have been to this establishment several times for the past few years. The biggest pro for me each time has been, a comfortable atmosphere away from the heat (in summer) and with heating (in winter). The biggest con... More

Ours was a short trip of 3 days to Shimla, and hence we could not explore too many restaurants. But the ones which we did visit, Café Sol was by far the best one. The restaurant is a part of hotel named Combemere. It is located slightly off the main road (Mall Road) and you need to walk down a... More

Eating a real hamburger in India feels kind of spectacular, though the meet may be buffalo instead of cow - just guessing. The atmosphere might attract some people, but not us. It's like they're trying to look better than us, and better than they are. Food is fresh but boring. I could eat at places like this everyday in Sweden,... More

We ordered a cocktail, a mocktail and a veg mezze platter.. Everything was beautifully garnished.. And was full of flavour.. One of the few places in Shimla which did not disappoint us.. Also, the seating area is nice..
