A Tysons coffee shop specializing in Turkish blends is planning to move into a former chocolatier space in Old Town.

Turkish Coffee Lady is a cultural and coffee/tea kiosk in Tysons Corner Center that is applying to open a store at 1001 King Street, Zebra first reported. Owner Gizem Salcigil White has filed a special use permit (SUP) for a change of ownership for the building that once housed Blüprint Chocolatiers and, more notoriously, white nationalist Richard Spencer.

The Tysons Corner Center location opened 2017.

“The new business will be a Turkish coffee and dessert shop offering traditional Turkish coffee, tea, desserts and pastries,” the SUP said. “We will also have cultural gift items and coffee artwork items.”

No live entertainment or ticketed events will held at the venue and the application said there won’t be food preparation in the store.

“Turkish Coffee Lady is an authentic speciality coffee business continuing a 500-year-old tradition of bridging cultures,” the application said. “It is the first and only Turkish gourmet coffee business in the U.S. with the mission of empowering women.”
