Bringing together the best of café culture, social responsibility and Myanmar’s unique flavours.
Inspired by the minimalist styles of cafés in Europe, Australia and the Americas, The Press Office is dedicated to creating a hip and ethical lounge environment for emerging local youths and expats. All pastries and cakes are baked on a daily basis depending on the availability of fresh ingredients, so café-goers can always expect an exciting array of baked goods straight from the oven. With delicious and locally sourced high-quality food and drinks, the café is set to be a refreshing counterpoint to the status quo in the industry.
Café-goers can expect more than delicious cake and coffee. The Press Office also supports the local arts community by offering local artists a unique space to exhibit their work, surrounding café-goers with beautiful and socially responsible art.
The Press Office is also an equal opportunity employer that offers fair wages and proper training, with the aim of improving staff retention and eventually encouraging staff ownership of the business. “For too long, businesses have seen profit as simply raising revenues and cutting costs,” said Eugene Lim, one of the owners of the The Press Office. “This can lead to some pretty nasty consequences – labour exploitation, cutting corners on quality, poor relationships between management and staff. We’re starting from scratch, getting it right from day one.”
Will they succeed in changing the industry for the better? “It’s always tough to be going against the grain,” said Lim. “But come by and try out what we have to offer, and let the flavours do the talking”
