Went with a friend on a Saturday afternoon. The service was prompt but I think that was helped by there being almost no-one else in the restaurant. The Darjeeling tea was something I had never tried before, and was interesting. The momos were stone cold in the centre though, and the soup was lukewarm. Requested it warmed and they presented...

After reading reviews on trip advisor & zomato, we visited the cafe on a Wednesday evening at 8 pm . It was dead. No body was there. The weekends are rocking with live music. So if you traveling to Shillong in the middle of the week and you are not a big group .. give it a miss. Food :... More

We were very lucky to go to Cafe Shillong on a Saturday evening when live music was scheduled to start around 6 p.m. (there's live acts on Sat and Sun evenings). We were welcomed with a hearty greeting by none other than the legendary Lou Majaw - a local musician/celebrity/poster child for Shillong's music scene. He was sweet, welcoming and... More

The location and name might sound like a cafe in Rishikesh or the hilly ones in north Indian mountains, but the same is not even near to it. Cafe Shillong is a nice comfy coffee shop, they often play live music on the weekends and have a good view over looking the road to the market. It looked like it... More

A small place that is , no doubt, such a favourite with the young crowd in Shillong. It has a reasonably good menu, great staff, warm ambience and the best part is the live music on weekends, that unfortunately, we missed.. I look forward to going over again !!

Café Shillong Location: not bad; easily accessible. Décor: good. A typical café like. Ambience: good for post-teens youngish crowd. Also, given the kind of audience they cater to, they allow smoking in the adjoining corridor area outside – where they also serve; but, sadly, with the doors wide open. This results in the smoke smell coming in the restaurant. Those... More
