Try the in-house specials. The in-house special pasta is the best pasta we have had in Manali. The in-house special pancake is just perfect. 11/10!!!

The first thing that strikes you about this place is the view it offers , especially when a bit of snow is hanging around on the picturesque mountains ensemble around. A place is only a place until some warmth is added to it. The staff...are few but absolutely will go to lengths to make u feel at home. The essence of a small "pahadi" town will hit u right then and make you realise there are existing nice people in the world . Rooms are cosy . Cafe and the food are brilliant . Nothing that you order is going to disappoint you . If your expecting luxury no it isn't but if you want a home away from yours ,this is your place. Affordable and distinguished. Lovely experience. Absolutely recommended !More

Outside in - a beautiful, warm, friendly, breathtaking abode owned by this amazing amazing person, Aditi Negi in Manali, is a place you can so not miss. Breathtaking - The rooms are reasonably priced, spacious and very clean. Best part about the rooms are the...fact that the windows open out to breathtaking sceneries. Manali is all about picturesque sights and outside in gives you exactly that. From tall trees to snow clad mountains, you can see quite a view. Beautiful - Aditi is just so beautiful and extremely helpful. If you don’t have an itinerary planned, worry not, it will be done for you. Whether you wanna hike, trek, travel around or just laze in the cafe, you will be taken care off as if you were home. Warm - The staff are super warm and courteous and serve you whatever you need with a smile. The food is finger licking good! The Indian cuisine is a lot like ghar ka khana (which is the best part), but don’t be fooled, the continental is as if it were prepared by some 5 star hotel chef. All in all, prepared with a lot love that is felt in every bite. Best part of the cafe is you can eat your food or sip on your coffee whilst either reading a book (quite a variety to choose from), enjoying the scenery in front of you or having a great conversation with Aditi. The cafe is also stacked with board games and paints to keep you entertained. Friendly - If you are a dog lover you will love the three cuties at this place. Ethu (a German Shepard), Shira (an American pointer) and the cutest of all three Thor (a Himalayan local) are super friendly and eager to play. Thank you outside in cafe and Aditi for such a great stay. Will definitely see you again!More

Outside-In Cafe took us in and made our stay a memorable and the best trip ever. We checked in with 9 friends, stayed over 4-nights and It felt like I am home, Aditi and her team are absolutely warm & caring hosts.. One of the...best thing about this place is the view! The view from the cafe & the rooms are absolutely breathtaking, it's one of the best spot in Kullu-Manali. The food is super yummy and perfectly cooked, Just like ghar ka khana. The energy of this place is absolutely warm and positive. My personal favorites are Aetu, Shira and Thor : they're such friendly & lovely dogs that you just can't resist spending time with them. Aditi has kept this place very authentic and exclusive, it's unlike the other commercial places I would say, There are no words to describe it, but it will make you not want to leave the place at all. I would highly recommend Outside-In Cafe if you looking for a nice, peaceful and quality vacay.. Good luck Aditi, will come back soon.More

first things first What amazing food with the view 🤲🏼. Visited with my friends this March, we stayed for 2 nights and 3 days. Best accommodation with lip smacking food. (Tried almost everything, couldn’t have just one lol) The cafe has such positive energy complementing...the hill view with the best artifacts (collected/made) redefining the peace the calmness this place has. Every corner is detailed to perfection. Ms. Aditi is one gem of a person or Supergirl if I may name! Shining bright all day with a smile on her face keeps the positive energies stay strong 🤍 Also Sanjeev (the chef) cooks it all in a way you like (with all his heart). It’s a must must goooooo place if you’re in Manali or nearby. Don’t forget to meet “Aetu”More

Amazing place- very close to Old Manali but away from all the city noise. Peaceful place to stay and unwind. Comes with amazing hospitality & food made by Chef Sanjeev!! It also gives you an option for camping on the premises. Kudos!! Must visit! ❤️

One of the best experiences in Manali was eating and staying at Outside-in Café. This place is amazing. Manali’s traffic and hubbub won’t bother you here. It gave me all I could’ve expected in my travels. It’s right across the river front, there are hot...air balloon spot 5 mins walk from the place and you could trek to Vaishisht right from the Café. They have awesome, spot-clean, comfy cottage-type rooms to stay which include a loft. We stayed there for a night. It’s a hip place and all credit goes to the gracious host, Aditi. She’s extremely helpful and warm. She helped me tremendously in my trip to Rohtang and Lahaul. It just wouldn’t have been possible without her. Food at the café is delectable. They have a good reading collection and the place is comforting. Best part is, they also have healthy options prepared from fresh ingredients sourced from their kitchen garden. We had a sumptuous meal at the Café. I sure hope to visit the place soon!More

Outside-In holds a special place in my heart as this is where the life journey with my co-traveller had started back in June 2017. and since then we’ve been visiting the cafe every year.With the view of the mountain range it felt like we were...in the laps of nature sipping the most soul satisfying beverages and engaged in never ending conversations.More
