Best places to go for Mother's Day in Karachi!

Mother’s Day is just around the corner on 8th May and though one day will never ever be enough to thank her for all that she has done over the years! But it’s a reminder of how thankful we should be to have her in our life. So this Sunday take the special women in your life out for a lazy Sunday brunch or a light lunch or a fancy dinner.
Your Mother – she definitely needs a reminder of how much you appreciate her!
Your Wife – she’s the mother of your children and she would love a thank you for how well she’s raising your kids!
Your Grandmother – yes, don’t you remember how she used to give you candies & chocolates when your mother said no!
Your Sister - She's the one responsible for those adorable nephews & nieces that you keep spoiling every month! 
Make a family trip out of it and let them all know how much they all matter to you!

Pie in the Sky is the family staple for getting cakes & desserts for EVERY occasion!

Do try out their new menu and their Mother’s Day special desserts.

The problem with taking your mother to a Desi restaurant is her saying at the end of the meal
“Isse behtar to khana mein ghar mein paka sakti hoon! Paisay zaya kare”
But Kolachi is the one place where she definitely won’t say that and in case she does, they will go above & beyond to make sure she loves her food.
Recommended Items: Lahori Fried Fish, Paneer Reshmi Handi, Beef Bihari, Malai Boti & Peshawari Karhai

Lal's Patisserie 

Lals has been responsible for celebrating our most important events across the years. So when it comes to celebrating a day dedicated to the person who has made our life possible, we think of breakfast at Lals - a cheese & shroom omelete, freshly baked waffles, their newly introduced crepes and of course their signature coffee! Do remember to pick a box of chocolates for home. 
Recommended Items: Banh Mi sandwich, strawberry crepes, Fattoushly Yours & any of their desserts!
