Lakeview is somewhat of a legend in Bangalore as it’s been there practically forever. My mum and aunts used to visit lakeview very often as youngsters, and now we follow the tradition. The ice creams are yummy, but I really enjoy the snacks there- the pizzas and the sandwhiches are delicious and perfect for a late night outing. Wash it... More

Never get tired of visiting this place - have been going there for the past 30+ years, and the ice-creams have always been some of my favourites! Their Banana Split was one of the best I've had, although there a number of new sundaes on the menu now. The Death By Chocolate is also a classic! Savouries are also quite... More

Lakeview Milk Bar traces a journey parallel to that of Bangalore .A legacy that is unbroken from its start in 1930. An Englishman named James Meadow Charles started the restaurant and sold it to a 19-year-old Indian Vraj Lal in 1947(almost symbolically)! Since its start Lakeview has kept pace with the growth of Bangalore, considering its original modest menu when... More

There was a time one would go to hangout at this place for the variety and the quality of the ice creams, snacks etc. Its lost all of that charm in the recent past. could be one of their off days.

We had travelled all across town to see a health centre in North Bangalore. Having missed lunch most of us were desperate for a small snack. Surprised to find a Lakeview on Mosque Road. Eight of us stopped and had a quick cold treat. I guess you can't make a mistake with icecreams. Was even more thrilled to find a... More

On queiter evenings we used to walk down the stretch of M G Road to reach the LakeView joint near GK Vale in the yester years. We still love to have a shake or an ice cream at this joint for the sheer location and the nostalgia.
