Casa Bella Vista
Tucked away from the main market of Manali, Casa Bella was suggested to me but lot of tourist around. I had read they had the best pizza in town as do it traditional wood fired pizza and serves only vegetarian food. I ordered for their signature pizza which is a must try, its freshly baked, hand tossed, thin crust and wood fired.. Well a good treat in cold Manali weather. Like most of the Cafes in Manali, this place has a lot of wood detailing and there are tall coniferous trees giving a very natural vibe to the place. The smoke from their oven, mixed with the smell of fresh baked bread will tantalize your senses even before you begin eating. The pasta however had more Indianized taste to it. Paired with cold coffee we had a really peaceful lunch experience. They have both indoor and outdoor seating, facilitates accommodation in its cottages, and has a small walk-in boutique selling kurtas, organic soaps and also, some accessories. We had a little problem finding a ride back since there are very limited options available on the spot, but the manager of restaurant was kind enough to call a local cab for us.

My Favorite place in Manali, that visited 3 time in my entire Manali stay. Live Bollywood music, riverside outdoor seating, cozy indoors, dim lit and quaint, hot toddy and uncountable wins of board games and cheerful crowd. It just a must visit place if in Manali. Enjoy your favorite beer, sip on a hot cup of ginger tea, sweeten your mouth with desserts or just look out of daily specials, a visit to this place is a complete treat. Located in old Manali on the banks of the Manaslu river surrounded by pine trees, this place will release all your tension and stress transporting you to a complete Zen mode. Coming to food, we had ordered coffee, French fries, pizzas and Brownie with ice cream. Cafe 1947 is surely one of the best restaurants in Manali and a must visit in your itinerary.

Situated at a walking distance from the Mall Road, Johnson’s cafe is known for its expertise of Himalayan river trout. The wood oven baked trout along with roasted almond sauce is must try. They have beautiful wooden interiors, complemented by alfresco seating arrangement amidst the lush lawns and Indoor bar, the live music at night makes it a place that you can chill for hours be it lunch or dinner, or just over drinks and good music. This place also offers accommodation and the host and owner Piya Jhonson was the best company we had in our entire trip. She told us about how this café has been a very natural thing for her, she sourced and grew most of the things keeping a very keen eye for quality. She came from a family that had an open house welcoming friends, family and travelers alike. She sat with us through our meal and entertained us with her travel stories, fats about Manali and some local suggestion we ought to try.
