It looks exactly out of a fairy tale.... Beautiful set up!!! Although the cafe was pre booked for a private party, they were kind enough to accommodate us for a coffee.

This place is in route to Cherapunjee. I found the food here to be one of the best meals I had while I was in Shillong. The service was a little slow but was worth the wait. This place has no mobile network though. The view around the place is very scenic...so do enjoy the smae
