The year 2004 saw the start of the coffee revolution when Espresso became the city’s first espresso bar. Since then, the city has witnessed a cultural change where going for coffee or ‘doing’ coffee most often means meeting at an Espresso coffee house. Espresso serves its premium coffees in Karachi at four locations; the original espresso bar in Zamzama, the coffee house on Khayaban-e-Shahbaz , the Forum Mall and the Naheed Supermarket. One can now sample these premium coffees in Lahore as well at Espresso's new location on Mian Mahmood Kasuri Road in Gulberg III. All outlets offer seamless Wi-Fi.

The aroma of full bodied coffee and the taste of wholesome quality food served up in a chic and stylish space makes it an irresistible hangout. There is also the ESPRESSO privilege card that earns you rewards each time you visit any one of its coffee houses.


Espresso boasts a menu packed with mouth watering appetizers, a selection of sandwiches, wraps, pastas, paninis and divine desserts. We offer a sizeable range of teas, smoothies, hot & cold beverages and an array of coffees all created from the finest imported and local ingredients.


Jump start your day at Espresso, when the coffee machines start pulling espresso shots, enjoying the best breakfast and brunch one can get in Pakistan. Pop in all day to catch a bite, have a coffee or just meet up with friends till late at night. Open from 8:00 am till 1:00 am on weekdays and till 2:00 am on weekends, Espresso is here to serve you.

Although reservations are not entertained, the management prefers that parties larger than eight guests call ahead to inform the outlet management so that no one leaves disappointed. There is no doubt that Espresso is the preferred choice for people of all ages, making it the best coffee house in town.
