Asian-style coffee buns arrive at West Lake Street
PappaRoti opened a new location in downtown Chicago. The chain of coffee shops, known for its Asian-inspired coffee buns, continues to expand across the United States. Most recently, it announced the January opening of a new shop in Naperville, 33 miles southwest of Chicago.
The bakery chain’s sweet Asian pastry bun, which some have compared to (the Turkish) pogaca, has been gaining traction. Previously, PappaRoti opened stores in Michigan and Nebraska.
“We are excited to be able to service the people of Chicago with our cafés,” PappaRoti representatives said. “Our specialty coffee buns have been developed with care for nearly 20 years in Malaysia and across international franchisees, and we can’t wait to share them with Chicagoans!”
Executives expect that the Downtown Chicago PappaRoti to provide a central, sampling location for new guests to be won over through trial. The menu offers standouts, including the Signature Bun, Ferrero Rocher Bun and Nuts for Nutella Bun. In addition, PappaRoti offers the Berries Delight Bun, as well as selections that can be stuffed with ice cream, chocolate chips and sauces.
Plus, on the beverage side, coffee, matcha tea and Pappauccinos, the chain’s own iteration of blended coffee drinks, make for appealing beverages. What’s more, the downtown Chicago PappaRoti will offer smoothies, milkshakes and fresh fruit juices.
