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.
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.”
I raced from the dais when our meeting ended to catch the opening of @TRCoffeeLady at King and Patrick in Old Town!
Check it out! A wonderful and tasty new small business for our community. pic.twitter.com/VM1uB4N3Hv
