Opened recently in Karachi, and already the rave of town – Hey Melbrew brings the distinct taste of Melbourne’s coffee, to Pakistan! Melbourne is the biggest coffee hub in Australia and is known as the coffee–crazed city. They focus on sourcing, roasting, and brewing the best coffee beans while exploring and experimenting with different blends, temperatures, and roasts.

In Melbourne, coffee is not only a way of getting your caffeine hit but a way of life. Their roasts are smoother, and brighter with a hint of caramel-tasting notes. Their unmixed love for coffee has become an integral part of their identity which supports the theory of ‘quality over quantity’. The rich coffee culture and world-class baristas make Australia one of the leading coffee innovators as they have truly nailed their approach to it.

Since they are a model for café worldwide, Pakistan was missing out on this, until the launch of hey Melbrew, providing us authentic coffee in Karachi!  Melbrew brings you authentic coffee roasted and brewed, the Melbourne way. They have not only introduced coffees from Melbourne but also plan to take up the same social and environmental initiatives that popular cafés and coffee roasters in Melbourne do – which include sustainable packaging and practices in helping out the broader community through their charitable contributions and initiatives.

If you are looking out for authentic and sustainable coffee, Hey Melbrew should be on your list next!

Over 130 years old, PAUL is the Ambassador of the French art de Vivre. Present in over 34 countries, Paul is renowned for its succulent assortment of bread, cakes, and delicious coffee, and has luckily opened its doors in Karachi!
When French café and bakery, PAUL came to Pakistan, we were pretty excited about the world-class coffee, croissants, and macarons it would bring. And we weren’t disappointed! Past the teething issues, the café has time and again delivered a pretty good coffee and pastry experience.
They have a pretty range of coffee and a few hidden gems that go beyond the usual lattes and cappuccinos. They have red velvet and pumpkin spice coffee too. We suggest you add their signature croissant or even the giant macaron if you want to indulge!  But, don’t forget to check their shelf for tarts, éclairs, and more.  And if you’re looking for something more filling, their mains are pretty good and not as expensive as you might expect. The Parmesan Crumbed Chicken and the PAUL Croissant Sandwich.
