In my opinion, the best desserts in Islamabad are here. After trying many weird ones, I wasn't sure about Hotspot but I'm glad I tried it. It's set out really well, with quirky photos and slogans all over the wall, and excellent options. They have a range of ice cream flavours, cheesecakes, apple crumble, sundaes and the popular brownie and... More

Snack spot, which is supposed to be a big hangout spot for teenagers mostly, and isn't that big of a deal in my opinion. Plus there has been no change in it since 2010!!!!

Hotspot was among the first ice-cream places to open up in the city, which was primarily targeting youngsters, and its doing a great job since. You still see teenagers, and people in the early 20s hanging out at hotspot, and those a bit older in their 30s coming and reminiscing about the times they've been to hotspot. While there are...

Cutesy place. Train carriage converted into a cafe. Diner style booths plus courtyard seating outside. Lots of indulgent desserts & smoothies. Perfect for those with a sweet tooth. Tried lunch once from the Saidpur village Hotspot one & it was awful. The food was cold, like it was taken out of fridge/freezer & not warmed through. The quiche seemed off.

What better way to hang with friends in the evening in the lovely garden eating cake and ice cream. Probably best to share the desserts! Sugar overload even between two people. I'll go back

Hotspot is a must visit for anyone passing through Islamabad. Tucked into the middle of F6/4, this cafe/restaurant/ice cream bar is inside an old train car. The decore is a large number of local artist's rendition of movie movie posters, but in miniture. The inside is covered in a large number of local artist's rendition of movie movie posters, but...
