Stress Relief 101: Cupshup Review

by Khunsha Javed

It stressful morning at university, however, the weather is good and you walk out of that 8 am class, you and your friends look at each other and say one word, “CHAI”. Now that is something we have all been through at some stage of our school/college/university life. So here is a detailed CupShup Review for all my BNU folks.

The Saviour

The only difference is that first, we would have to get the majburi wali chai from the cafeteria, However, our batch of BNU is kind of luckier than the previous batches because we have Cupshup right in front of us. So no more cafeteria wali chai. Thus, it has become our usual to meet at cupshup after our morning class, so everyone knows that everyone is going to be sitting at cupshup rooftop if they are not to be seen in uni or class.

Hence, being in your last year of university and that also with covid still there, you don’t really know when they are going to close university or when you will get a message that online classes will start tomorrow. It’s sad that from seeing our friends every day, we would go to not seeing them.

From the daily antakshari sessions over chai at chupshup we would go our separate ways. However, the cupshup team made sure they made these few days of our uni life memorable. Every day we will walk in cupshup just to find that one girl who organized all the plans and events would put up the notice, of course with the permission of the cafe owner, that “red theme tomorrow” or “blue tomorrow ” or “90s theme tomorrow”. And the fact that the cupshup team would put up the same color balloons on those days.

The solution

My squad and I would have it decided that before 10 we would all have breakfast together every single day. Moreover, we all have the one friend out of all, who is a very picky eater. However, Cupshup’s menu is not just any small tea or coffee menu, rather the menu consisted of appetizers, fries, salads, soups, burgers, pasta, sandwiches, roulades, chicken steaks, pizzas, paratha roll, desserts, ice cream.

Then came the drinks menu. So the drinks menu had shakes, mocktails, lagoon, frappe, iced tea, and normal cold drinks. So you can tell by just looking at the menu that there are going to be a lot of things to decide from and all the picky eaters can also find something to eat from the vast food options.

The atmosphere

They had their sitting arrangement open air on the rooftop where they had a cute setup. Plus they had made it a little creative with plants and fairy lights etc. Moreover, the best thing was that they had a good cooling system outside with water coolers. Plus, it was hygienic and clean and most importantly it gives you a homey feeling.

The verdict: Summarizing Chupshup review 2021

All of us went with our own favorites and usuals. So I would normally go for the potato cheese balls and spicy stuffed chilies for something light and for the main if I want to eat something heavy I would go for tarragon steak with mashed potatoes. Rest would go with pizzas, burgers, breakfast, etc.  But, in the mornings we all had coffee and tea. So all the students at BNU this is the place you need to be. I would suggest this and rate this 10/10.

The whole experience is 10/10, this is the bottom line of this cupshup review for cafe students in Lahore. Give it a try and trust me you won’t regret it! It is absolutely reasonable and worth your money. For more on the best updates in Lahore visit Mumara School. For discounts on your meals, visit
