The staff is very courteous and friendly. The food is delicious... we ordered a Roast and a Steak and both were equally mouth watering. Also, Shillong Cafe is one of the very few... More

The food is fantastic! We ordered a meal of Smoked Pork Chops and some Pork Bastinga (i think dats what it's called- basically chunks of pork cooked in a tangy curry served with crunchy boiled veges and brown rice). It was really good. Also, a typical chutney (made from dried fish and spicy red chillies..almost like the 'eromba', was amazing.... More

If you stick to sandwiches and coffee, this is a great place to hang out. They have live bands playing on Sundays 6 to 8. Is open thruout the day. Good crowd. Nice service

North-east boasts of musically inclined people. Lou Majow is a very talented musician. Came to know from him that he plays live in the Cafe every Sunday. Myself along with my wife were there on a Sunday evening and liked it so much. Excellent music played to a receptive audience of only about 25 person. Crowd is different. Food is... More

The Cafe Shillong was a surprise. It was quiet, clean and good. We really had some good family time which we completely enjoyed. Very hospitable and helpful staff. Just loved our time at Cafe Shillong

I was here for a couple of times during my stay in Shillong. I was favourably impressed for a nice creamy 'cappuccino' and an acceptable 'espresso'. Fearly good choice of dishes and high quality in terms of appearance and taste. Probably, it would be better to have a larger choice of traditional indigenous food ...since the North East is rich...
