Visited there twice during our 3-night stay at Manali. Foods are really good and filling. And this place also offers live music with audience interaction. So you will enjoy the time over there. Owner of the cafe is also very humble and friendly.

Go there even if you don't intend to eat, just grab a bottle of beer and enjoy your Saturday night listening to live music at this beautiful cafe. I'm sure you will not be disappointed. Infact will come out smiling.
