Pakistanis love for chai knows no bounds. Chai is more than just a drink to us – it’s a part of the rhythm of life. The thick, frothy, sweet, liquid goodness is what we start and end our day with and serve to our loved ones – no matter what the occasion.

“The Chai Spot aims to be the place where cultural and religious differences are left at the door. Full of color, love, and light, our space offers customers time to indulge in dialogue about how to make peace a more possible act.”

“As a cause-driven initiative, we are focused on providing opportunities to women in Pakistan to use their skills for income generation for themselves and their families. This not only boosts their confidence but gives them a respectful and dignified position in the household. ”

Khalida belongs to a Pakistani family from a village in Balochistan and David belongs to an Italian-American family. As most of you can guess, a marriage between the two probably wasn’t a piece of cake. After facing many hurdles along the way, chai is what played a crucial role and essentially brought the two families together – making the marriage possible.( Mangobazz)
