Espresso is a nice coffee place where you can enjoy a nice cup of coffee, a pizza, a sandwich and some dessert. We are regular visitors of espresso in the Dolmen Mall in Clifton and Shahbaz Commercial Area. This time the visit was around 8.30 PM in the Shahbaz outlet. As usual the place was relatively busy. We managed to... More

The coffee and food served here is fairly good. Although the lack of high level competition is a natural deterrent, it is safe to say this is the present premier option.

Espresso is always a delight, the food is great, service is friendly and the ambience is so comfortable that you can spend 3-4 hours chatting with friends. You must try their appetizer platter, which can be so fulfilling that you might not order food. :)

This is a nice coffee chain to grab an early morning coffee (beware the locations, the one in Dolmen does not open early). Came here couple times for business discussions and to work, waiters are friendly and overall very helpful, but music can be too loud at times.

Went for coffee. The place was pretty packed even for a weekday evening! Ordered a few shakes, coffee and tea with cheese cake and cookies. The order was taken with quite some delay but the food arrived quick enough. The shakes were good, so was the coffee. The cheese cake wasn't the best but it was still good. Overall, not... More
