Sabali means patience in the East African language, Bambara.

The couple opened Sabali Cafe & Bakery with the aim to provide good food to folks in Manali. Rupali and Abidal were in search of a place that serves good coffee and desserts. Since they couldn’t find one, they decided to open one themselves. Sabali comfortably sits on Manu temple road in Old Manali. The cosy wooden chairs and tables, and display counters stacked with colourful cakes and bakes, will instantly leave you salivating.
