coffee anyone? :)

Best ever coffee in the town? What’s your pick?

Masooms’, Coffee and Tea Company’s, Jammin Java’s, Fuzon’s, DD’s (Dunkin Donut’s – the home of purple balloons :] ), Hotspot’s, Chillout’s, PC’s? anything, anyone? :)

I kinda liked Jammin Java near center point. Sadly it’s history now. Can somebody tell me why?

    Freddy’s offers very good mocachinno and i think i saw a jamming java sign right behing the hobnob/hotspot market a while ago but not so sure if its there or not. The best cup of coffee is made at home :)

    I love the bananaccino at Maasooms! Something of a class apart personally. Though I agree with Smudgestick… best coffee is made at home!

    As for Starbucks, well doesn’t matter how much they charge! I’m sure Lahoris are quite capable of affording it any day… any time… ;)

    How much a cup of coffee costs in Pakistan nowadays?

  7. smudgestick (unregistered) on November 29th, 2005 @ 4:55 pm

    It ranges from Rs.25 to roughly Rs.150 a cup. The former one is the road side disposable cup of take espresso ( more water, less milk, lesser coffee ) and the later one is from a typical deli/cafe/resturant.

    Whatever happened to the good old coffee shop around Fortress? The last I was in Lahore was back in May of 1996.

    Although I am originally from Karachi but I used to be in Lahore almost every week for work. Since I moved to the US in 1996….I have missed the place.

    Are you talking about the Jungle Rock cafe Razi? – Well it came way before time when the coffee shop culture didn’t recoganize yet. They were from the same group which came up with the pizza parlour shop at Centre Point back in 1992 with the name of Pizza Land. They did well in the start but later they sold it to someone which only spoilt their name. However, things are totally changed in Lahore now. Those who haven’t visited Lahore in past 10 years time will certainly notice the same! :)

    My pick is Jammin Java. Though I feel Hotspot’s coffee is ‘still’ better. Despite of the fact that the environment there has become crap and it has become over-recognized//populated//poluted//and “everything else not nice”. But I still feel that their coffee is good.

    But we friends normally end up either at masooms or at jammin java. They too have become crowded. We are now searching for some other place which is not recognized yet. Found out a coffee shop in reliance plaza’s basement in gulberg. I visited their once. Its a small cafe, i don’t remember its name. Didn’t try the stuff yet. But the environment was at least ‘private’.

    how abt cafe’ life in fortress?
    havent tasted theirs

    Wow. 150 Rs. I will never pay 150 for a cup of coffee . there can be much better uses of 150 bucks. but may be 150 is not the same 150, as I knew it, anymore.
