One of the most popular hill stations in India, has to be Manali. This beautiful place was once upon a time a sleepy town. Though it was always a popular tourist spot, there has been a huge surge in the number of tourists in recent years. It is definitely the honeymooner’s paradise and the small town has adapted well to the crowd that it attracts every year. There is a rise in the number of hotels, homestays, guest houses and restaurants too. In fact, Manali today is well-known for its quaint cafes. Here is a list of the best ones in town you must hit along with your gang
This place is undoubtedly fancy and probably is best suited for people who wants to celebrate some occasion or honeymooners. The al fresco seating area, the stone benches and the breath-taking view of lush green mountains all around, makes it worth the while. We hear the trout fish here is phenomenal and you must give it a try when you visit. It is part of the hotel of the same name and if you happen to stay there, it would be a lovely romantic stay for sure.
Offering European and Continental cuisine, Drifter’s Café is the best bet for breakfasts. If you happen to be in Old Manali, spend your lazy mornings here and soak in the sun, good vibes and smells that would make your stomach grumble. Moreover, the place is pet-friendly with an in-house dog as well. We hear, some of the patrons like it so much here that they do not go anywhere else until the café shuts down for the day.
Café 1947 has the perfect location for travellers. A quaint, little café that is located just beside the river has a great menu and awesome food too. The sound of the Beas gushing through the rocks, is soothing for the nerves and the whole experience is extremely relaxing. The soft background music complements the whole atmosphere. A cup of cappuccino, beside the turquoise blue Beas is sheer bliss.
Far from the maddening crowd, there lies this small café – Kilta. It is owned by an American, and trust us, you have to believe all the hype that is made about this café. Robert, the owner is passionate about coffee and those are like him will know what that means. Hence, here you can have the best coffee in Manali. The cookies are to die for here and it all comes in moderate prices. Now wonder people keep coming back.
The Lazy Dog
Up for some cool music? Head to The Lazy Dog! It is a great eatery with lip-smacking food and all your favourite drinks in their bar menu. Thankfully all this comes for a cool price that doesn’t burn a hole in your pocket. The best part is the live performances by local bands like The Local Train, Rudra, etc.
Did you know Manali can be a great destination for your winter break too? Of course, it is best to check for road closures due to heavy snowfalls. But imagine staying in a white Manali? Most of the cafes remain open too.
If you can master the art of doing nothing, and if you want to stay away from crowds, this is the best time to include Manali in your holiday planner and start planning for it with your travel agency in India.
