I went on a recommendation, and am glad i went with my family. We had a scrumptious brunch, try their special... and liked it so much that we went back for dinner. Awesome trout and pepperoni pizza. Must visit Make no mistake this is the cafe and not the lodge, though thats right next door. To obviate doubts, its owned... More

We entered Johnson's cafe quiet late on a Saturday night. The security guard won't take us in because it was already 11 and the place was jam-packed but after endless requests (and standing in the rain for half an hour) we were let in. The place is quiet nice..the best thing about this place that night was the amazing music... More

The most pathetic breakfast experience I have had in Manali so far. Stale food..exorbitant prices for grubs and "couldn't care less" attitude.. We are currently in Manali living at the Johnsons lodge next door and don't still know why we decided to come here for breakfast. First the kitchen wasn't ready..it took a good half an hour for the food... More

We visited this cafe after reading the good reviews. Although the ambience and view lived up to expectations, the food I felt was average and expensive for the taste. Not more than a one time visit.

The best Food and especially the Death by Chocklate I have ever had. They mix small quantity of Kalhua in DBC and that makes it more yummy.
