Pax & Beneficia Coffee, a local European-inspired coffee shop, recently opened its second location at the newly-built AC Hotel Fort Worth Downtown. Pax & Beneficia, known for its Turkish coffee, signature drinks and gourmet food selection, can be found at the base of the 16-story AC Hotel Fort Worth, 101 West 5th Street, near Sundance Square.
“We are ecstatic to expand upon our Las Colinas concept to bring our unique flavors and European spin to the heart of downtown Fort Worth,” said Mouyyad Abdulhadi, owner and chief marketing officer at Pax & Beneficia Coffee. “The comfortable surroundings, coupled with our distinctive menu, offer people a place to come together and enjoy a one-of-a-kind experience.”
Pax & Beneficia, founded by Abdulhadi and long-time friend Mamdouh Khayat in 2019, occupies 1,400 square feet in the AC Hotel Fort Worth, offering its full menu of traditional items like cappuccinos and americanos combined with uniquely crafted European creations. Among the menu items are Pax & Beneficia’s famous Turkish coffee, served traditionally on hammered plates, the shop’s specialty espresso drink deemed “Sunshine in a Cup,” and its many variations of toast inspired from Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and American cultures. Every coffee creation uses locally sourced beans from San Antonio-based Merit Coffee Company and consists of Pax & Beneficia’s specialty syrups crafted in-house.
“By joining the AC Hotel Fort Worth, Pax & Beneficia is building upon the hotel’s blend of comfort and European-inspired amenities to bring downtown Fort Worth a truly authentic experience,” said Joe Blewitt, Jackson-Shaw vice president of asset management and developer of the hotel. “In combination with the hotel’s AC Lounge and its European-style breakfast and tapa-inspired small plates, Pax & Beneficia Coffee will offer an additional harmony of cultures, bringing together classic favorites with nontraditional Andalusian, Arabesque and Turkish flavors.”
