I had devil evil and the glass sandwich (a veg grilled sandwich) at the cafe. But that is not what this place is famous for. This is a nice place to sit and observe the liberal and sporty culture that shillong has fostered all along...try to sit in one of those tables in the balcony and have your cuppa ...you... More

Its Roadside and gives some noisy views down the main road from the outdoor seating. Some would love it and some wouldn't.. Depends on people. Food is Average but Price is high. I guess thats the way it is

A fancier version of CCD. You can find some proper food items like "tukhpa", not just snacks. You must try the "Shillong tea", best tea of my life, very refreshing. On Sundays, they have live music. Very close to "All Saints Church", one of the tourist attractions of Shillong.

The ambiance of the cafe was very good. Outdoor seating was always occupied by a group of locals and you may not get a table for yourself. Coming to food I am not sure about it as majority of items are non vegetarian, pork to be specific. There were very few options for vegetarians like me. I chose a glass... More

We went there on a sunday evening for a live gig and came back extremely happy. The band is awesome, very energetic and the crowds love em. The restaurant service is immaculate, staff is courteous and prompt. Food portions and flavors are worth a try. Haven't found another such place in Shillong. Free wifi was a cherry on top. Try...
