We went in April and it was not the season time. I had the burger and French fries. the burger was good. French fries were really crispy and well made. did not try anything more. Good experience. will like to try it sometime later during season time.

Maybe I came at the very beginning of the season, but the place from the reviews didn't meet the standards. We had breakfast, the coffee and omelette was good and thankfully the fruit bowl has freshly cut fruits, the burger was a bit of a let down though. Maybe it get better once the full season kicks in, will definitely... More

Hi Karan Thanks for taking the time to review us. ~ Off season and season have its different Pros and Cons. In the Full season everything is more lit up and crowded. On the other hand in off season its more peaceful and chilled out. ~ Off season has its shortages because it is hard to find supplies that time... More

Amidst old world charm of old Manali lies Cafe 1947 facing the fiercely flowing river on the other side. Its nothing like I would have expected in a small place like manali, it was more like a lounge with a warm ambience and an impressive menu. I liked the beverages and the small eats, also the time spent looking at... More

Cafe 1947 is a quaint cafe by the river with a relaxed and cozy ambiance.Generous servings of food served either indoors or outdoors next to the flowing river make it a great place for long relaxed brunches. The love of rock is evident in the posters adorning the walls and the place has a distinct vibe of rock n roll.... More

This one's right above the beas, where the sound of the gushing river keeps on playing in the background. Its a typical cafe decorated with books, guitar and other assortments. For our 4 days stay in manali, we went for breakfast to cafe 1947 everyday. The food is good, with variety and the ambience is hypnotic.

A beautiful friendly little place. Amazing music round the clock.... served live! A great place to make new friends. I celebrated my birthday here after a long bike ride across the Himalayas and have been waiting to go back ever since.

After our Rohtang trip, we visited 1947 and it didn't disappoint us. It has one of the best Italian food which you will not find anywhere in India. Located near Beas, if you are in Manali. Be there :)

After a morning trip to Solang, we visited cafe 1947 for lunch and immediately fell in love with the place, as we stepped down the stairs. Ambiance: Could not be better. They have both indoor seating and outdoor seating by the river. It is not one of those fancy restaurants but rather a cosy one. The owners are music enthusiast... More
