A Fancy Affair of Delectacy and Delight



Does a basic chair with a plain table having no art and flair tempt you anymore? Remember when you visited a cafe or a restaurant only because it was visually attractive and had a cutesy ambiance? Yes, we all have done this so many times. We tend to judge a place by its appearance and if it’s not quaint enough, it does not really make it to our Insta stories. It has to be Insta-worthy to be featured. True, eh? 

Today, we have picked out some really snazzy eateries that do not just have good looks but they also offer good food and we can totally vouch for these places. 

Coco Cubano 

The romantic dim lights and white flowers do not captivate us anymore. We like green plants, fine floral arrangements, direct sunlight, beautifully appealing kettle covered in a vibrant cloth, wooden stairs and a quirky wall with artistic pictures on it. Are you already imagining a place like this where you can sit and sip on your favorite chocolate shake? 

Right in the heart of Lahore at M.M. Alam road, there is this small and fetching eatery called “Coco Cubano”. From tea to food, everything is just on point. Sublimely decorated, calm and dinky; this place is extremely freshening at any point of the day. 

Strictly Social  

After a lot of desi Dhabas, we all wanted a fancy bar-like place in Lahore where we could just stand casually and drink “the not so alcoholic” beer in those classic wine glasses. Strictly Social has got you sorted with its eccentrically cool ambiance. The name of the cafe is self-explanatory. You gotta engage with the music, sing along and do the party. They hold a standup comedy session every Friday and open mic night every Saturday. There is a Karaoke room inside the cafe which is yet another new thing in the city. They have experts in making drinks and have a wide range of cocktails with names like Sour Newton, Bitter Crush, Green Gragon and many more. You are absolutely going to love this whimsical place just like we did. 

Pasta Lavista

There are very few places that are aesthetically pleasing as well as offer good food. By good food, we don’t only mean taste. Here we are talking about good serving size. Pasta Lavista is one cozy place with an artistic ambiance and great food served appealingly. Our recommendation is their Rivioli, Scarpetta Pizza and Tres Leches Cake. The food is real heaven with some quirkily painted walls surrounding the tables.  

Déjà by Khadija 

Scrumptious food, pastel vibes, and refreshing atmosphere; all of it sums up this small cafe called Deja by Khadija. Adorned in pink, gold, and grey, this cute little bakery will definitely be your next stop for its delicious breakfast. The most attractive thing is the way they serve their drinks which is quite amusing and fancy.

5 motivational thoughts to get you motivated by Canadian-Pakistani CEO, Muneeb Mushtaq



Canadian Pakistani CEO and motivational speaker Muneeb Mushtaq has given us many insightful and empowering thoughts over the years on the basis of his experiences as a young and dynamic businessman. The tech tycoon has been the founder of three tech business ventures and has managed to achieve so much at such a young age. And, he has given back his learning and knowledge by motivating, educating, and mentoring people to be successful in life.

Here are some motivational thoughts by the Forbes awarded entrepreneur Muneeb Mushtaq to get you motivated and beat the Monday blues:


  1. Get rid of the useless and negative clutter in your life


Muneeb Mushtaq suggests that it is important to subtract some of the unnecessary things from life to realise how insignificant they are. He advises us to get away from the insignificant and negative clutter in order to see an immediate positive impact. Worrying about what others think of us, trying to please everyone are some of the unimportant things we need to remove as soon as possible. According to him “When you remove what’s negative, it’ll add more space for what’s POSITIVE”!


  1. Don’t wait, just take the first step


The successful entrepreneur recommends us not to wait for other people or for the perfect moment to do what you have always wanted to do. There will never be a perfect time, situation or circumstances that would make you start working on your dreams. He advises us to just take the first step and get started.


  1. Failure is the opportunity to start over again, more wisely


The dynamic businessman is also of the view that failure provides an invaluable experience that makes it more likely to get success the next time around. He explains: “Till the time you don’t give up, the failures are just learning experiences, helping you to eventually succeed.”


  1. Respect the competition


Muneeb Mushtaq also shares this motivational thought that competition should be embraced and should be used as a driving force to push you further rather than fearing it. Competition is also a validation that there is a massive market and opportunity in the space to grow further.


  1. Change is important

Another motivating thought from Muneeb Mushtaq is that if you want change in life, then you should also be willing to change. He says, “If you are not willing to change, don’t expect your life to either”.
