After a quick food tasting session the bloggers gave their expert feedback.
Hani Taha: I think this going to be a great place to hang out, because of the view. It’s the only place that gives you outdoor facing the sea.
Mahraba Mujahid : The expectations are very high and there is a lot of competition, so far the place has woed us by its ambience, lets hope the food would also match up the mark.
Natasha Khalid: I like the whole concept of their menu card, the way they have it in the form of a newspaper. Which will go with the whole concept of breakfast, and the interior is amazing and comfy, the food is average, but amongst their coffee’s there is latte which was superb, something I would come back for again
Zunaira Zafar: overall I like the place, the ambiance and the view. I really liked the chicken piquante and I absolutely loved the smokey flavor but over all the food was not upto my expectations but. Coffee was nice. I loved very vanilla chiller amongst the drinks, mixed berry chileer was too sweet for my taste. Over all a nice experience but definitely room for improvement.

Tehniat Aftab:Amongst the many other Cafes sprouting up, I think Gloria Jeans is different and exceptional because of it’s ambiance and the great view of the sea. Expecting the food to be as grand as the place, I was a wee bit disappointed, but all in all the food was good. Fillet mignion was perfectly cooked and had the right amount of pepper in it; chicken piquant on the other hand was a bit sweet, but well cooked as well. The burgers were a bit dry, the patty not as succulent as it should have been. The ambiance is great, but it’s the food as well people would come here for so they need to raise the bar a bit. Otherwise, a good place, spacious and the perfect image of a lounge.

Sairah Khalid: Gloria Jean’s Coffees has captured THE prime location at Karachi’s coastal landscape. A casual, cosy and lively ambience is what will keep the crowds thronging.
Waqas Ather Saeed: Gloria’s dolmen mall outlet is the only place in Karachi where you can have an early morning coffee/breakfast in an exquisite lounge setting with a breath taking view of the sea. Also while you’re there, do try their Mixed Berry Smoothie. Pretty good !
The Launch happened later in the evening with celebrities and different VIP pouring in. The café was appreciated by all and it is anticipated that Gloria Jeans Coffees would do fabulously well as it has done in its previous years.
