“An evening to remember”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2014

After reading all the rave reviews, we made it a point to leave out sunday evening free for this cafe- which was one of the best decision my usually stupid friends ever made. We were lucky to have Felix Langstieh performing that night, and the food lived up to the quality of music. The grub was delicious, the staff polite and the atmosphere absolutely vibrant. . . that evening was certainly the highlight of out trip.

“Nice atmosphere. Product not up to par”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

We enjoyed hanging out at Cafe Shillong with a group of about six. The atmosphere was warm, the staff worked to keep people happy, but the coffee drinks and shakes were subpar. The wifi was really slow, but better than nothing! I'd probably go back there again, but would be a little more careful about what I order.

“Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

The menu is varying, which is good. You do not get much food like this in Meghalaya. The pasta and soup and noodles are good. The burger was very good. The smoothie isn't much and the coffee is nice but could be stronger, so if you like your coffee strong, make sure to ask.
Staff are very friendly and always smiling.

“Free Wi-Fi! Nice Coffee and Burgers. Avoid Pasta”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Situated right on the main road, you can easily reach here by taking a bus, shared maruti 800 taxies or by the shared MTS maxi cabs. They have indoor and outdoor seating arrangements and they play nice music. The free wifi is generally very slow but you can check your emails and do some light surfing.

Decent quality food. Salads and Burgers are nice. Coffee was really good. Avoid pasta. Ice Tea was also not that great.

Cafe Shillong is a good place to chat and have light appetizers.
