Where to eat ?

Coffee made its presence felt in Pakistan the day it was introduced alongside tea during tea-breaks at conferences, and at work. The coffee culture emerged in Pakistan after 2004 when the young people, lacking social activities, turned to the grand and elegant coffee houses that treated the tea-loving nation with the warm cups of coffees in an environment that is compelling and comforting at the same time.

Everything has changed since then as new generation of cafes, coffee shops, have sprung up all over the Islamabad city. New coffee shops seem to be opening up every month, and the craze is spreading out. Many cafes, along with coffee, also offer breakfast and brunch to grilled vegetables, from crispy salads and grilled food to healthy and natural food. Here is a coffee lover’s guide to some of the best coffee shops in Islamabad.
