I dropped by Cafe 1947 just coz of the live music thing which was displayed at the door. I was with my childhood buddy and we were basically looking for a place to chill and converse over a few beers. The interior is quintessential himalyan wooden lodge kinds which gives a warm nostalgic ol' school feel. The view is such... More

Ate at couple of places in Old Manali but riverside cafe has to be one of the places if you're in mood of some italian indulgence especially Pizzas or mains. Also, has a good spread in breakfast. Manager is a bit of heavy/ death metal fan and don't be surprised if you suddenly start hearing this music when your enjoying... More

The staff were very coordial and friendly. But best was the atmosphere and the ambience on the fast flowing river side tables as well... More

Run by two brothers, this is THE place to hang out in Manali, especially if you love music. There is always some impromptu jam going, because both brothers are excellent musicians. Their coffees are to die for, and so are the pizzas. My personal favourite is the Red Hot Chilly Pepper pizza, which is a bit on the extreme side... More

We liked the service of the bros running this place - very warm and accommodating. We ended up visiting them twice in a day to watch their band play as well. The place has some good food and is missing on some variety in alcohol but overall very hip and warm place.
