Coffee shop with Turkish twist opens at AC Hotel Fort Worth Downtown
Downtown Fort Worth is getting a new coffee spot with a cool Turkish twist: Pax & Beneficia coffee, known for its Turkish coffee and gourmet food, just opened in Fall 2020 at the AC Hotel Fort Worth Downtown, the 16-story hotel that opened at 101 W. 5th St. near Sundance Square.
This is the second location of Pax & Beneficia, which was founded in 2019 by friends Mouyyad Abdulhadi and Mamdouh Khayat. Your first is in Las Colinas, on the Gables Water Street mixed-use project.
They are also opening a location in Dallas, near Victory Park at 1700 Cedar Springs Rd.
The AC Hotel Fort Worth offers traditional coffee house drinks such as cappuccino and americanos, but also Turkish coffee, which is traditionally served on hammered plates. They’re not cheap: a Turkish coffee is $ 6, a French press is $ 5.50. Cappuccino is $ 4.25; A mocha costs $ 5.25.
They use beans from the San Antonio Merit Coffee Company and homemade syrups.
In terms of food, they make Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and U.S. themed toasts including Mediterranean Avocado Toast, Nutella and Fruit Toast, Ricotta Candy Toast, Labneh and Za’atar Toast, Toast with za’atar and feta and toast with PB and J.
Joe Blewitt, Vice President of Asset Management and developer of the hotel at Jackson-Shaw, says in a press release that Pax & Beneficia is a perfect match for the hotel.
“In combination with the AC Lounge of the hotel and the European breakfast as well as tapa-inspired small plates, Pax & Beneficia Coffee offers an additional harmony of cultures and combines classic favorites with non-traditional Andalusian, arabesque and Turkish flavors,” says Blewitt.
