Lahore is a city of culture, art, and literature. UNESCO recently bestowed the title ‘City of Literature’ on Lahore.
With the vibrant and bustling food scene of Lahore, it is fast becoming the food capital of Pakistan. Young and old, boys and girls, rich and middle class, food lovers and fun lovers, all Lahoris are interested in hanging out with friends and family.
Lahoris are taking the love of food to next level. We Lahoris, like not only the Karrahis, Biryanis, burgers, shashliks, kinds of pasta, pizzas, shawarmas, we now equally like to munch on light nibbles with a cup of nice tea or coffee.
With a warm cup of tea/coffee in hand, we love to discuss our plans with friends or what amazingly funny things happened at work, maybe even reminiscent of the times we friends enjoyed together. With these recent trends of cafes in Lahore, people get more and more options to cherish the love of chai/tea and coffee.
With so many new cafes opening every week, each time a hangout plan is in the making Lahoris like to stay up-to-date about which new and good cafes have opened since the last time they visited. What better place other than LCCI (Pakistan) to look for top cafes in Lahore. We have a list of cafes by area so you can search for cafes where you want to hang out.
Some nice cafes that Lahoris like to go to are:
Cooco’s Den & Cafe: Cooco’s cafe has been around for about 2 decades now, but it never lost its charm. Its ambiance is the best. No other cafe in Lahore enjoys a similar ambiance. Chai/tea and food to go with it are amazing. No matter how many times you go there, you would love it.
Redolence Cafe: Redolence is one of the finest bakery and cafes with amazing customized cakes that you will not get anywhere else in Lahore.
Cafe Solasta: Solasta is one of the finest and is located in the center of the city (Gulberg). The menu has some nice options for people with different tastes to choose from.
Fast food joints started opening in Pakistan more than two decades ago, in September 1998 to be exact. The first restaurant of McDonald’s opened in Lahore and there is a reason they chose to launch their first restaurant in Lahore. Lahoris made it a success on day one.
Soon after came the KFC, Pizza Hut fast-food chains, and many other international fast-food chains. All successful in Lahore, because people love to eat delicious food, no matter what the genre is.
Food always comes first whenever we talk about leisure and celebration. Especially when people want to have limited get-together and meet-ups, they usually go to a fancy place to celebrate their joys.
