Description: Serving a great selection of all-day fare from American, Continental and select Indian cuisine, along with dedicated breakfast, lunch and dinner items, and a fully stocked bar, Drifters’ Café is best known for its vibe that allows you to achieve a lot by doing nothing at all.Walk in any time of the day, and you’ll find that time takes on its’ own pace. Take your pick from a selection of exciting board games, relax in the comfort and warmth of fireplace on a cold snowy day, browse on our free WIFI, swap stories with fellow travelers from around the world or just laze around with a book from the library or while listening to some of the best music in town. Post sunset, the Café takes on a different flavour. You could be seated next to a singer from Latin America, a banker-on-a-break from Europe, a journalist from Russia or even an exotic dancer from the Middle East. We run day's special menu during summer months. We even extend our Cafe service on the first floor Sun Deck during sunny days.We often have different themed events happening in the Cafe, like Live Acoustic Music, Karaoke, Quiz Nights, Live Electronic Music & more. All of it contributing to making your evening a fun experience. Ask any regular visitor to Old Manali, and he’s bound to tell you “Drifter’s Inn and Café is where the action’s at!” At the risk of sounding a bit immodest, no, he wouldn’t be exaggerating.

Came across this tittle cafe and inn on tripadvisor recommendation. This visit needed a detour from my route, I am glad I took that.

I was greeted by a beautiful smile, fragrance of dhoop and 2 fluffy gorgeous doggos. We ordered the egg benedict and eggs and sausages. The food was cooked to perfection. Pure delight.
The ambience is very cosy and colorful, we took our time at this place and cought up with some office work!

It's a must visit for all those who are looking for a little solace amidst the hustle of the touristy crowd.

I had a terrible experience visiting this place. I went to eat breakfast there with my friends. Food quantity and quality is very low but over charged. Even 10% service charge even after I made a complaint to their waiter. Didn’t even give discount after complaining. They are like they don’t give a damn about the complain. So disappointed.

was a great experience visiting Drifters cafe while in Manali. We had ordered pizzas and burgers ......and they were just excellent. Location is right on the main road , ambience is beautiful and staff very co operative. Pricing is reasonable and service quick and its an ideal place to relax and sip your cup of coffee and check the internet.
