I was there in July 2015, Went there twice.. Food wasn't great, service was not as expected(Maybe because i was seated in the open zone, but it wasn't the same as expected. Location is good and went there to kill time... Time is Money, So the Money got Killed too.. :)

Visited the place after reading some glowing reviews! But I found it to be one of the most overhyped, overpriced & unalluring places I have ever eaten in! I was given raw rice noodles & the club sandwich I had was worse then something I make at home..Music playlist was outdated..Only the ambience was upto par! Never visiting again!

Good location, food is quite good and staff well behaved except the manager who behaves rudely every time I come here.This is interesting as I have never seen this anywhere else in the world !The managers generally apologise for mistakes committed by their teams.Here I actually had the waitresses telling me not to mind the manager's behaviour !

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
