Drifters' Inn

Multicuisine in Manali

This loungey restaurant-cafe with a mellow, jazzy soundtrack is good for hearty breakfasts, strong coffee and international dishes, from eggs Florentine to remarkably good Thai green curries.

Prices usually include rice, potato or garlic bread. Beer/shots cost from ₹230/90 but you have to buy at least two. The guest rooms (₹1100 to ₹2500) are spotless, if rather less stylish, sharing outdoor-terrace seating areas on each of three floors.
