Your Go-To Spot for Coffee
We always heard mixed reviews of Mocca cafe and decided to eliminate the confusions, The place can be found in three spots of Lahore. Mall-1 Gulberg Packages mall, and DHA phase 5.
We tried the Gulberg one, calm, peaceful, mature ambiance, just what a coffee place should be like. Oh and they have a rooftop smoking area too if you don’t like the indoor aura.
Coming to the food, menu was quiet good in variety, had huge drinks variety(coffees, shakes smoothies), All day breakfast options, salads, soups, some typical main entrees and lots of dessert options etc We ordered stuffed chicken, penne arrabiata and Caramel Coffee Frappe.
This was… somewhat a mixture of actual arrabiata sauce pasta and Alfredo pasta.
Creamy mild from Alfredo and slightly spicy reddish from arrabiata. The grilled chicken chunks were super hard and chewy.
If you are hoping to find a spicy tomato sauce arrabiata pasta, this ain’t the one.
Cost: 850 Rs.
Stuffed chicken tastes different wherever you try, so was the case with Mocca. The chicken looked well cooked, crisp and yum..but as soon as we dug in, the crust separated itself from chicken and was not very crispy either, the chicken was very hard and chewy, the spinach stuffing however was good in taste and jalapeno chunks added the spicy kick to it. This was topped with bechamel sauce which added a creamy milky touch to this hard chewy hard-to-eat chicken
Caramel Coffee frappe
On recommendation of staff, we ordered this coffee frappe and this was plain cold coffee blended with ice-cream. Strong to a good point and chilled. Just like a shot of strong thick cold coffee you would want on a Sunday afternoon. The caramel in the name was limited to only name though.
Cost: 450 Rs.
The service was satisfactory, nothing to make them stand out.
Mocca has huge food and coffee variety, occupies a very calm and neat place but their taste can be improved a lot. We love their coffees though. You can visit this place if you are finding a quiet place to work with a coffee cup on side. or for a quick meeting or friends hangout on rooftop. A complete meal of main course and drink can cost you 1200-1500 Rs.
