Turkish Coffee Lady opens in Old Town

There’s a new coffee shop on King Street. Turkish Coffee Lady officially opened its doors at 1001 King Street in Old Town, joining a handful of neighboring coffee-inspired hangouts.

The space at the corner of Patrick Street (also Route 1) and King Streets is the former location of Blüprint Chocolatiers, and the second floor was notoriously once home to white nationalist Richard Spencer.

The new coffee shop is also a stones throw from Misha’s Coffeehouse and Roaster, ESP Tea & Coffee and Uptowner Cafe.

Turkish Coffee Lady opened as a kiosk in Tysons Corner Center in 2017, and offers Turkish coffee, tea, desserts and pastries. The business began as a food truck in 2012, and owner Gizem Salcigil White and volunteers spent five years driving around America, Turkey, Netherlands, Belgium, France, and Canada.

“Turkish coffee is the world’s first coffee brewing technique, and is the genesis for coffee shops today,” White told ALXnow. “It’s unfiltered, and you are drinking coffee grinds, which is very healthy. If you have two cups without sugar a day, it actually boosts your immune system.”
