Espresso might be Lahore’s coolest joint for a coffee. In a cavernous, sunken lounge beneath the Nishat Tower in Gulberg III, Espresso combines good food and drinks with cool chic style to make it Lahore’s best coffee in a nightclub-like setting.
The chicken caesar salad filled me up for lunch, while the iced coffee options were as good as you would expect from a place wearing the sacred name. There are heaps of options or breakfast, lunch, snacks, platters and indulgent desserts.
But what really takes the cake here is the laid-back setting, full of Lahore’s young and beautiful, chilling out to an eclectic mix of Craig David, Simply Red and Bruno Mars, and just generally forgetting the world whizzing by outside. How perfect!
