Great place for breakfast and to make plans for the day. The staff was very nice and helped us with sightseeing recommendations. WiFi connection is ok.

“Lovely cakes”
Reviewed June 29, 2014

We had two meals here during our stay in ShangriLa, and it offered child friendly facilities, an extensive menu, and a lovely cake selection. Great food at good value.

“Newly Reopened after the Old Town Fire”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Really glad The Compass Café has reopened again after a forced cease-operation given the fire that destroyed the Old Town. The new place is at 50 Shang Ye Jie, Old Town, Shangri-La County.

The food is still excellent and I love the beef curry set. The Indian masala tea is really aromatic. The ambience of this new place is great - bright and clean!

Had a quick tour of the Compass Lodge on the second and third floor. The Lodge will probably be open for business in a week's time. From what I'd seen, I like the rooms especially those with beds in the loft! Toilets are very modern! No fear for Singaporeans who are afraid of Chinese toilets!

“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

Great service and excellent spread of food. Compass café probably has the best western spread of food in the old town at Shangrila. The service was good and the café deco is really nice and cosy.

To Fiona and team

Keep up the good work.
