The place has live music and is by the river side. The high point was live music by Suneet Rawat . The food is nice but not terrific. Loved the evening overall. Thoroughly enjoyed

Very well made cafe with a collection of books next to the counter. You can sit by the river and enjoy a good meal. The cafe also holds live music sessions which are really popular. Cafe 1947 is a must visit!
