19 Apr Sweet Affairs- the trendy hangout
Sweet Affairs located in Phase 5, DHA is a bistro styled café which offers a versatile menu. It is owned by Ms Asma Waqar who is the chairperson and Ms Saniya Waqar the CEO. Sweet Affairs opened its first branch four and a half years ago in Gulberg, opposite Yum restaurant. From there it expanded to a second branch in Phase 5, DHA and is now opening another branch in the upcoming Packages Mall.
It caters mainly to the youth, providing them with an attractive and clean place to socialize in. The fledglings have a vast social network and so their word of mouth is important for marketing and advertising of the cafe. Café timings are from 7 am to 2 am.
The décor is fantastic. Wooden tables and red velvet chairs add colour to the otherwise immaculate white and silver serving counters. Vase Globes are a novel concept that enhance the outlook. A wall has been dedicated to a scrabble like maze of relevant café vocabulary such as café, espresso, gelato, love, etc.
The signature of Sweet Affairs are its cakes and the Brick Oven Pizzas. The finest cake is Red Velvet but there are others such as Dairy Milk, Chocolate Fudge, Caramel Crunch, etc. In terms of competing with cakes of other restaurants, Sweet Affairs excels in decoration and advance booking for delivering in lesser time i.e. between 16-18 hours.
Coming to The Brick Oven pizzas, there is a variety of flavours that are available. Super Brick Oven which is a combination of veggies, black olives and mushrooms; Barbeque that has smoked chicken with a special cheese topping. The aroma of coal is mouth-watering.
The hottest selling desserts include molten lava, cookie skillet and Peekaboo. Peekaboo is a steaming chocolate brownie topped with a chocolate shell.
A factor that sets Sweet Affairs apart and perhaps makes it unique is its offer of Diet food. The 15, 30 and 42 day challenge designed for people who want to shed weight fast is affiliated with Sweet Affairs. Sweet Affairs offers 3 meals a day- breakfast, lunch & dinner, in accordance with the diet plan given by the instructors. The dishes offered are purely continental. Chicken steak with greens, Greek salad omelet (made only with egg whites) and smoked salmon sardines are a few to mention. The prices range from a minimum of Rs 30,000 to Rs 80,000 and free home delivery is also offered.
The Gelatos it offers are home-made and preservative free. The flavours are Nutella, Cookies & Cream, Pistachio, Strawberry, Ferrero Rocher. The Nutella ice cream is to die for. The chefs have been trained according to International standards and the staff is extremely amicable. It is over all a delightful experience!
