PappaRoti Brings Coffee Buns to Frisco and Lewisville


A global restaurant chain celebrated for glazed coffee buns is making a grand Texas entrance. PappaRoti, a blend of cafe, bakery, and coffee shop originating from Malaysia, unveils two locations in the DFW area.

The Frisco location of PappaRoti opened on October 12, 2023, at 9188 Prestmont Place #100. Another branch, located in Lewisville at 729 Hebron Parkway #240 is scheduled to open by the end of October.

Starting in Malaysia, PappaRoti opened its first store in 2003, showcasing its pastry innovation of roti buns or coffee buns. These sweet, yeast-based breads are adorned with a luscious coffee-and-caramel glaze before being baked, resulting in a crisp exterior covering a buttery, salt-kissed interior.

The tan and pale buns offer a delicious blend of sweet and salty flavors, making them a unique indulgence and a beloved item at 450 establishments worldwide in 14 countries. The concept made its U.S. debut in 2019 in the Chicago area, where there are three successful locations.

Franchisee Shoaib Mohammed, who stumbled upon PappaRoti in Chicago, is bringing this yummy offering to Texas. He was inspired to introduce this attractive concept to Texas.

Crafting these buns involves intricate steps like kneading, thawing, proofing, and various undisclosed techniques. If any part of the process doesn’t go according to plan, the bun won’t bake to perfection.

In addition to the classic signature bun, the menu boasts nine diverse flavors and extravagant customizations, including the following flavors.

Oreo Bun: A roti bun accompanied by Oreo cookies, a waffle bowl with vanilla ice cream, Oreo crumbs, and dark chocolate sauce.

Nuts for Nutella: A roti bun drizzled with Nutella, topped with whipped cream, sprinkled with chopped hazelnuts, and garnished with sliced banana.

Ferrero Rocher Bun: A bun topped with chopped pieces of Ferrero Rocher toffee, served with a waffle bowl filled with vanilla ice cream, chopped hazelnuts, and dark chocolate sauce.

Pairing perfectly with these buns is the chain’s hallmark Karak tea, a velvety chai infused with evaporated milk, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, and vanilla extract.

Other beverages include matcha tea, Pappauccinos (PappaRoti’s take on Frappucinos), smoothies, milkshakes, and fruit juices.

Mohammed anticipates a soft opening with restricted operating hours initially, from 3–10 p.m., before extending the hours from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. The bakery is open daily.
