Cafe “Sol” is located on the most popular street of Shimla – Mall Road. This is Italian cuisine cafe where you can find vegetarian and non-vegetarian food, both.

The cafe is quite good. It has a large variety of dishes, delicious food, a colorful cozy interior with wicker furniture and average for India, fairly reasonable prices. The dinner or lunch for 2 people will cost you about 1000 – 1500 rupees ($14-21).

But the cafe has its minuses also: slow and not very attentive waiters, the lack of washroom in the cafe itself (it is a part of the hotel and you can go to washroom there, but it is very far, on another floor, although the entrance to the cafe is separate and it is closer to Mall Road than the hotel’s entry). Another significant minus is the bigger taxes than normally in restaurants of India: not 5% but 18% – according to Indian law, the restaurants on hotels territories are obligated to bigger taxes. And in Indian restaurants they are not included in the prices of food but added later in the bill. If not to know about it, it can be unpleasant surprise for you.

Otherwise, I highly recommend the cafe “Sol” for Shimla travelers. Foreigners will definitely like it!
