“Magnifique.... A must visit place in Shillong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

I decided to visit Cafe Shillong after looking at all the great reviews online. And it certainly lived upto its reputation. Everything about this restaurant is impeccable. 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 places in Shillong where you'll get good coffee. The Cinamon Latte and the Caramel Cappuccino which we ordered were simply superb. I also liked the music and the relaxed feel that you get when you enter the cafe. The sumptuous food, the chilled out atmosphere, the superb service, the wonderful ambience... all together make the experience a memorable one. I am definitely visiting this place again... and again...

“Bloody Awesome Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2014

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. Tracy, one of the servers packed some for us in a little box for us to take home! They are amazing hosts.

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

“Music is the spirit of life”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2014

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 OK but you go for music not for food. Seating is informal. Overall you will like the place. Another good thing, no hard liquor
For convenience of others, I have graded the following on a scale of 10 :
