Looking to travel to the northern areas of Pakistan but not sure if the accommodation quite suits your taste? Well, set your worries aside because a cozy and welcoming new café is open in Gilgit so it provides you with the entire experience while you enjoy your favorite dishes and foods.
The Cherry Tree, a comfortable little café has recently been opened by Rabia Iqbal as her own personal project. Designed like how she envisioned it, the café’s interior is mostly wooden, with warm lights and a homely look to it, which gives it a very relaxed ambience.
During chit chat with Rabia Iqbal, she shared that the basic idea was to promote a soft and an enterprising image of this region and to bring awareness to the entrepreneurs of other provinces that Gilgit Baltistan can be a good business investment. This region attracts the most amount of international and national tourists but lacks the facilities to accommodate them.
Located in one of the most beautiful mountain range at Ghazi Market, Gilgit Cantt, The Cherry Tree fills in the void of what people found to be missing in Gilgit, a place to have a nice calm chit-chat while being offered everything from tasty meals to the comfort foods they’re so used to having.
The Cherry Tree has a wide variety of dishes. Whether it is a nice warm bowl of soup after you’re done exploring the glaciers and hiking in the cold temperatures, or something like a dessert to boost your energies to go on out again. Sandwiches, Burgers, Salads are available with their own specialties such as seen in ‘The Godfather’ burger. Overall the dessert game is truly where this café excels, and can easily fulfill your sweet tooth.
Rabia Iqbal said that she wants to portray a beautiful and a modern image to encourage the locals as well tourists to come to these areas and enjoy those treats which are available in the rest of Pakistan. The customers should expect a comfortable cozy place where they can rest and relax in a beautiful ambiance after a day long expedition up in the mountains .. we offer a comfortable plush sofa set up and good coffee and a small collection of books to read from
The reviews received so far have been overwhelmingly positive with many people recommending going there due to their hospitality, ambience, and delicious food, if you happen to travel to Gilgit anytime soon.
