Espresso – A sophisticated Dining Experience

Yumnah Fatima
Located at mm alam road, in the basement of Chez Casa, is a little Indie restaurant called Espresso. At first sight, it looks like your typical coffee place with even a mini book store at its entrance. But don’t let that fool you- Espresso is not just any coffee house, it’s a full on dining experience; having everything from soups and steaks to burgers, sandwiches and wings.

The one thing that distinguishes Espresso from all the other coffee shops/diners is perhaps the ambience of the place that has a cozy, homely feeling to it. The whole theme is brown and the back panel of the whole place is not a wall but a back-lit abstract display that helps light the place, still managing to keep the place dimly-lit. It’s the perfect place for a tet ‘a tet with your best friend.

The dishes that stand out from their menu are the sandwiches and burgers, if you want a light meal opt for their famous CLT Sandwich which is Chicken, Lettuce and Tomato in nice fresh baguette. The chicken is pretty spicy. Or if you want to go all out, try their starter platter that has everything-Potato Skins, Chicken Strips, Mozzarella Sticks and Buffalo wings. The best part is that they are served with an array of sauce options to choose from including Sour Cream, Cheese Dip and Hot Sauce. Espresso also has perfected the Alfredo pasta dish, serving it with their delicious Garlic Bread which is hands down, better than any other restaurant. The desserts at Espresso are also a must try! A Hot and Tasty option is their chocolate peanut butter cakes that will tantalize all your culinary senses.

For one of those days you just feel like having a good old cup of coffee, Espresso is your go-to place. Feel like reading up a little with your hot beverage? Pick up a magazine or book and read it there. It’s the kind of place where after you’ve visited thrice, the waiters will know your name and your usual order! The friendly atmosphere of the restaurant has earned it some major points. And speaking of points, you can earn yours too by purchasing their Loyalty Card that lets you gain points each time you order food and after a certain points, you can have free food! It can’t get any better than this.


A recent addition to the amenities at Espresso includes their special delivery service so those of you who can’t make it to their outlet as frequently as you’d like, can simply order in. With their catchy tagline “We deliver hot or cold. Never warm”, you can be sure to have the feeling like your food is coming fresh and straight from their kitchen.
