We visited Cafe 1947 twice during our weekend trip to Manali. Had a brilliant time.. The food was yum and ambience was lovely.. The people running the cafe were really nice and helpful.. We also were there for one of the live music nites and it was really captivating. Thanks Cafe 1947 for lovely memories.. Cheers.

River view at balcony, river flowing at the back of the cafe. Sheeshas, Italian food, live music and the best crowd are the reasons I loved... More
