Very average food. Veg Burger & Sandwich were below average - no flavour, just an assembly of things put together. Green Apple Fizz drink and Iced Tea were good. The sauce with momo's had little flavour or kick to it.

Absolutely lovely place with excellent waitstaff as well as delicious food. This was one of the best places we stopped by for a meal in all of North East. Try their thupka as well as the noodles in the banana leaf.

The cozy ambience, smiling staff and delectable food - it was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch experience at Shillong Cafe. Never had such juicy and tender Pork steak before.

Heard a lot about this Cafe so went with a lot of expectation. Ordered Shillong noodles and chilli pork.which came wrapped in leaf so nice presentation but the noodles was of average taste. My friend ordered chicken momo which was good but not great. Price...was ok. Service was fast. To sum up you should visit for the ambience and the experience but not if you are looking for seriously good food !More

Visited Friday afternoon and got a table without problem. Had their Veg Thupka and Veg Fried Rice both of which were very good. Had Blueberry milkshake which didn't taste like Blueberry and a Caramel Coffee which didn't have any chocolate! Overall a good experience. Recommended.

It used to ba a happening place in Shillong and still some times its difficult to find a place to Sit. to have a view of Laitumkhra road you can sit outside. You will like the place if you come during a live Band. You...can try BTW cafe near Rani Motors Mawblei if you and to have a better view.More

One of the most chilled out places with excellent food. Went there for lunch - the pork thukpa & Shillong Fried Rice was out of the world. The kids also freaked on pastas.

We visited Cafe Shillong with high hopes. We ordered Thukpa which was below par. The service was good however the mediocre food is a let down.
