If you are looking for the best wooden oven pizzas, then Cafe 1947 is the place for you. This place is located right next to the river and has the best ambience with a very great collection of music. Owned by two musicians from the hills, this place is definitely worth many visit.

Nice ambiance. Food is just about palatable. Location is excellent. Electricity is erratic therefore no cold bevrages. TOILET can be smelt from a distance of 15 feet. They dont open before 11am so not for early tourists. The owner loves to socialise wth the patrons hence the service suffers dramatically.

the cafe serves one of the best pizzas and lasagnas in old manali. the ambience is good and the best thing apart from the food is the guitar setup. there are 2 electric guitars and one acoustic one and all 3 are kept tuned unlike the untuned ones you will find at other places. they have 2 amps with one...

We went there for dinner recently, in Oct 2013. Its quite a cosy place, with comfortable seating. Its a place to just relax with your friends over a few drinks. We didn't try the food much, so cant comment on that. The owner though was really really nice. We had a blast!

Ambiance.... Place... Location... its AWESOME! I loved this place and the service. The 'summer of 69' hookah is worth a try (the price is very reasonable). The food exceeds expectations and they might pay guitar for you fro free!!! I am definitely visiting this cafe again!

Okay so we visited this place on the 2nd last day of our trip. What classy infrastructure and an apt location for a cafe. (We soo want our own cafe now. Hmph! ) Outdoor seating was decent but since there were too many flies we shifted in. Food was good with some kickass music. They might just play some guitar,... More
