Zamalek’s New Specialty Coffee Spot Walm is ‘Ready’ to Serve

Now, before we dive in, let me clarify one thing so you don't miss the clever wordplay I've deftly employed in the headline. In Arabic, the term ‘Walm’ signifies readiness; the kind of readiness infused with an eagerness to deliver, and that's precisely what Zamalek’s newest specialty coffee hotspot promises to offer.

Freshly unveiled in March 2024, Walm has transported its distinctive caffeinated experience all the way from its inaugural branch in Al Khor, Qatar, to the lush streets of Zamalek. With a motto of ‘coffee first, life later,’ Walm is dedicated to savoring the calmer moments, beckoning caffeine enthusiasts from near and far to indulge in a leisurely affair with a fine brew.

Featuring a menu brimming with classic caffeinated beverages alongside specialty creations like Walm’s signature blended karak latte, Walm’s offerings extend beyond the comforting embrace of coffee beans, encompassing an array of teas, matcha, and hot chocolate concoctions. And for those who prefer a ‘cup on the couch’ experience, Walm’s signature blends are available for purchase - plus, they offer some sleek minimalistic merchandise, including branded totes if you're into that.

While Walm is renowned for its specialty coffee, it would be remiss not to mention that the desserts here steal the spotlight (and perfectly complement their brews). From decadent croissants to croffles, brownies, and cheesecakes, one dessert that truly stands out is their colossal cookies, essentially a giant cookie pie.

A warm and inviting space, adorned in deep teal and yellow hues, Walm is poised to become the latest ‘it’ destination. So, if you're tempted to break away from your usual haunts and explore something new, we wholeheartedly recommend paying Walm a visit - who knows, you might even get to meet Walmo (their long-legged mascot) in person.
