Lals Patisserie originally began as a chocolate and gift shop in the year 2006 by Lal Majid. And in 2012, they expanded their idea and made the chocolate and gift shop into a dine-in spot that all Karachiites know as Lals Patisserie, located on Khayaban-e-Shahbaz, DHA, Karachi.

What originally started as a shop for chocolate lovers has now expanded it’s offerings to include a savory option. When you first enter this eatery, it has the aroma of chocolates and coffee beans. The ambiance is pleasant with soft, calming music playing in the background.

The interior is delightful, and designed with an eye for detail. At the entrance you see all the sweet items on display in a glass showcase. The shelves on the walls are beautifully arranged with all kinds of gift boxes. This is a two-story building, with a wooden staircase leading you to the first floor that has very neatly arranged tables and a big window. The atmosphere is quite pleasant and cozy; the kind of place you’d want to be at with a good book.

Since Lals was officially a chocolate gift shop, their sweet food items are far better, and more popular, than their savory items.

Here are three items at Lals Patisserie I recommend you try:

1. Chocolate Cheese Waffles

Firstly, their Chocolate Chip Waffles, which are are served with their home-made chocolate sauce. This is one of the most popular items on the menu. If this is your first visit, this is the one you want to get! (Rs. 425)

2. Brioche French Toast

Next I’d recommend their Brioche French Toast, that are seasoned with cinnamon and vanilla and glazed with caramelized apples. If you’re a french toast lover like me, these are some of the best you’ll find anywhere. (Price: Rs. 460)

3. New York Cheesecake

Last but by no means least, end your meal here with one of the best cheesecakes in town — Lals’ New York Cheesecake. This classic baked cheesecake has a delicious cheese flavor that tantalizes and satisfies.
