I love chocolates so the name of bakery inspires me much. I’m waiting for it to start.
It is right in front of Jasmine Mall, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town Lahore.
When To Start:
It seems to start soon because they have completed all the interior. Their glass shelves have been placed. Above picture is little old, now much work is done.
I don’t have the exact date but I guess it will start in remaining 11 days of 2016.
Yes you read it right! Finally McDonald’s is coming to Bahria Town Lahore. It is one of the brand we all have been waiting for. I like it because of it’s ice cream. Moreover they really have clean kitchen and deliver clean food.
When To Start:
It is heard that they are planning to launch their Bahria branch on New Year Eve. It seems to be a really tough target because we have only 12 days left. Though they working day and night and they have built the above building within days.
Let’s see if it’s true and they really start their branch on New Year Eve.
Effect On Commercial Property:
McDonald’s branch has also effect the rise in prices of commercial nearby. 2 marla commercial of CC block has raised from 8 million to 15 million only because of McDonald’s. However prices have settle down on 13 to 14 million right now. This is a very high price for a 2 marla commercial plot.
I believe if commercial size would be nearly 4 or 5 marla, then it could be a better option for other brands to jump in. I don’t think that any international food chain will start their outlet in just 2 marla commercial. So I guess this raise is temporarily and price will fell down a bit more.

Bahria Town Lahore has the third largest Eiffel Tower of the world after Paris and China. Paris has the original one, the real wonder. Eiffel Tower in Paris has height of 300 meters. Second in China has the height of 100 meters and here in Bahria Town, we have the third one with height of 80 meters. It is almost a 100 feet taller than Minar-e-Pakistan (which is considered as a high tower in Lahore).
Bahria has celebrated the new year at Eiffel Tower and opened it at that time. Afterward they close it and planned to open it from Monday onward.
Eiffel Tower has three stops on it
- Coffee Place
- Viewing Deck (top)
It will have a small ticket to move up on that elevator which is expected to around Rs. 100 to Rs. 300. It will be confirmed by tomorrow.
This is the monument of its kind in Lahore. I guess whole Lahore will come to visit that monument and it will be a wonderful place to have a dinner on the top of Eiffel Tower.

Jammin Java Cafe is the next coffee shop opening in Bahria Town Lahore. They are doing the finishing work nowadays, it will open soon. I’ve tried their brownies at one outlet which were really good.
Address is near to Askari Bank and Bank-al-Habib, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town, Lahore
Tutti Frutti is renown frozen yogurt brand. It have many branches in Lahore and recently they have started one in Bahria Town Lahore.
B side, Sector C commercial zone, Bahria Town Lahore. It’s in center of talwar chowk and Grand Jamia Masjid on left side.
After giving so much news of opening new restaurants in Bahria Tow Lahore, we’ve one who closed. Yes, The Bagel Bar wipe out from Bahria Town Lahore. Once I gave news of opening of Bagel Bar, now the closing news.
The Bagel Bar cafe and Gloria Jeans, both were international chains of coffee. Both were at the same place; Talwar chowk. Gloria Jeans is still surviving, or growing, and Bagel Bar is closed.
Why Bagel Bar Cafe Leave Bahria Town
There are few reasons in my point of view
- Gloria Jeans is a franchise of a plaza owner (he don’t have to give rent). On the other hand Bagel Bar Cafe was facing a heavy rent of nearly 300,000/- a month
- Gloria Jeans prices are lower than The Bagel Bar
- Gloria Jeans pastries are better in taste than The Bagel Bar
First reason is more important than other two. We’ve lost one international restaurant chain in Bahria Town Lahore. But after some time, when the market grew, more population over here, they will come back again. International restaurant chains have their target market in Bahria Town Lahore.
Timmy’s is the name we are looking on billboards for a long time. They are promoting a lot but didn’t able to start the restaurant. I believe they are promoting for few months. Every time they have mentioned ‘Opening Soon’ but that soon never came.
Well wait is over and now Timmy’s is opening today on 11-April-2015 at Canal Road (next to PSO pump and before the house of Malik Riaz). Timings are from 5pm to 2am. Are these timings for opening day only are remain like this? no idea.
They have a logo mentioning Burger, Pizza and Shakes as their specialty. This is not any international chain so we don’t have any experience of it before. Hope they won’t be as lazy in their taste as they’ve shown in opening the outlet.
Timmy’s has also given special discount cards of 15% off. These cards are valid before May 1, 2015.
These are the days when brands are rushing towards Bahria Town Lahore. Actually these international brands have limited locations for their outlets which are DHA, Gulberg and Bahria Town type of places.
Pizza Hut and other brands like it have their customers in such areas so they keep their focus on it. So now, soon we’ll have Pizza Hut in Bahria Town Lahore as well.
Pizza Hut is starting their outlet near to Cine Gold Cinema, outside the food court. That place was earlier Deplix beauty parlor.
I’ll update as they become functional.
