We spent 2 months in Manali, often working out of cafes to get our daily caffeine fix. Here’s a list of our top cafes in and around Manali to work and play from.
Manali has some of the best coffee shops and cafes and depending on the time of the day some of them are just quiet enough to work and day dream from. A word of caution though- these are popular tourist hotspots and weekdays during peak season tend to get pretty noisy and crowded. So if you have work calls to attend it’s best to work out of your own hotel or homestay.
And if you drink as much coffee as us, you can simply join us on a cafe hopping adventure at our favorite places. Depending on the part of town you are visiting here are our top recommendations.
Arguably the most happening place in Manali. Do visit for excellent grub, live music and local souvenirs.
Pro tip- if you are coming from Manali Mall road, walkthrough the beautiful Deodar lined Van Vihar- a surprisingly serene wooded path in the heart of the city.
