Its a well maintained cafe which primarily serves baked things. All kinds of baked stuff and breads are served. Seeing the crowd, it was understable that its extremely popular among the locals and falls under budget.

Food is good. However, the service is a bit slow. Also we ordered for a veg sandwich which they took ages to prepare and when it came to our table the waiter realised it was actually a non veg sandwich. After which we cancelled the sandwich order and left.

A vast collection of cookies and confectioneries right at the heart of Shillong. And if you are lucky enough, you might get a seat by the windows and enjoy the hustle and bustle of the city while gorging on your favorite cakes...

This is a cozy little Cafe in Laimu which is perfect for hanging out with friends over coffee. It is very small though.

I have spent five days in Shillong during my 11-day backpacking trip to Meghalaya and spent three mornings devouring my breakfast at Bread Cafe. The cafe,with its humble ambience and below average music,boasts of an impressive menu which includes a host of indispensable cakes and pies and pastries. Having tried close to everything they have to offer,I would highly suggest... More

Great place for cake lovers. The cheesecake was great, a must try. And try other bakes (Puffs, tarts, pies...etc) with a cup of hot coffee

Please avoid this wannabe cafe. The staff are extremely impatient and all they know is how to finish off with the orders and send you packing. A cafe is a place where people want to hang out not just come, sit and order and then leave in ten minutes. There are better cafes in Shillong. You can always find someplace... More
