Cafe 1947 - it is the place that obviously greets you first the moment you enter Old Manali - You just cannot miss it. And once you are inside, you cannot leave. The food is average(I am sure they can better it). But the people and their service actually makes it a beautiful experience - so much so that you... More

Located in Old Manali, this place will blow your mind with its set-up, food and the overall service. With the river flowing by, soul-soothing live music by Benjamin, you can chill at this place for hours. For all those who love their Tiramisu a certain way, this is the place to be!

This cafe is around 2.5 kms from mall road, manali at old manali. Beas river flows near to the cafe which is an amazing experience especially in monsoons. Food served is okay, not that great as compared to other cafe's you may find outside manali, they play live music too, a good place to hangout with your friends.

Amazing cozy and clean place with very fresh and tasty food. I feel it is just one of that rare places where you can get real Italian pizza. Coffee was super good with cool froth design. Highly recommend this place for everyone.

With limited time in Manali, we were cafe hopping to find our home. We stumbled upon 1947 first and enjoyed the view and food thoroughly, but we still had so much to explore. After all the different ones, our last 2 meals were spent here, because we loved everyone there! The owners, the staff, the performers. Everyone! Must try their... More

Heard a lot about this cafe. Had Nirvana tea; Slayer Pizza; Metallica Pasta and classic Tiramisu for dessert. Service ambience and food simply awesome. Place you must visit to chill and listen to live music at night.
