If you're a reader, a loner, a music lover and even an introvert type, it's the right place for you.. Relax and have a good meal whenever you want, hide away from the busy streets.

I choose this place to have breakfast after quite a bit of research. The entire thrill of being in Shillong for the first time was flushed down the drain after having their ice cold fries and under baked pancakes. Their service and the quality of food served were challenging each other in mediocrity. Avoid at all costs!

It was a good place once upon a time but lately i dont know what has gone wrong with it. I was on the table for 30 Minutes trying to place an order but the waiters were least bothered to even show their face. I walked out after it, which also didn't have any affect on the staff i guess..

Yet to discover real quality food in Shillong. Swish may have a nice and hip ambience but the food is nothing special. Same old noodles and fried rice and some package soups. The european menu is lacking originality and suffers from low quality ingredients. Can't rate the meat dishes as I did not try them but my friends who came... More

Favourite things on the menu were 'sausage rolls' and mint drop soda. Was easy on the pocket and taste was always satisfactory. The new location was a little less accessible but with a... More

This is a gem of a find. Nice unpretentious food with a dose of Asian cuisine. Coffee is good. Lively, young crowd, well I guess that's their market. The service was really good. Much better than all the cafe chains I've been to in India (not naming names) which just seem to serve stale sandwiches and pastries. It reminded me... More

Excellent ambiance and good food. Has a decent collection of books to read while leisurely having a cup of coffee. Non-vegetarian fast food is particularly good.

being coffee deprived in the tea-land that is assam and meghalaya, for nearly a week. This was a godsend. Some great coffee and short eats/continental meals. simple yet lovely ambience and very sweet staff too. seems to be very popular with the Shillong hipsters ! A Must go in Shillong for your coffee fix..much better than the coffee-day types chains
