basically a cafe known best for its handmade ice cream. the cookie dough ice cream is excellent and so is the strawberry. cleanliness of the cafe is suspect but its not dirty. its a pleaseant place to hang out if a bit tired.

If you want to see worlds worst service and have one of the best dessert, this is the place for you. Person at the counter hates his life and is ready to take his frustration out on any customer. So be ready for the test of your patience. Enjoy!!

Priced slightly on the higher side of most dessert-only joints, the Hot Spot does great ice-cream, frozen yoghurt and sundaes.

Big big portions, I was not able to finish two scoops of ice cream despite the nice taste. They also have a couple of salty dishes if you haven't eaten. The place looks good, with lots of posters...

Hotspot started in Islamabad as a home-made ice cream spot, with the years its grown into a unique dessert and snacks place. They provide quality taste...the only downer about the Karachi branch is the management and working staff, they don't seem to welcome and deal with their customers.
