Turkish-inspired cafe will be setting in Plano

Pax & Beneficia is setting its fourth Dallas location in Plano as it plans to bring Turkish philosophy and culture to Heritage Creek according to a Community Impact article from July 1 which reports, 


“Artisanal cafe Pax & Beneficia is slated to open in the Heritage Creekside development in late summer. Pax & Beneficia offers drip, pour over and specialty coffee drinks as well as sweet and savory bites.


The Plano location will be Pax & Beneficia’s fourth Dallas-Fort Worth location. Pax & Beneficia’s selection of coffee is sourced and roasted at its own roastery in Grapevine and is available for purchase at each location, according to a news release from Rosewood Property Company, the parent company of Heritage Creekside.


According to a filing with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, Pax & Beneficia completed $150,000 in renovations earlier this year at Heritage Creekside’s location at 1300 W. Plano Parkway, Plano.”


The soon to open cafe of Mouyyad Abdulhadi and Mamdouh Khayat is known for their Turkish coffee and food which all originate from Kenya, Guatemala and Ethiopia according to a CultureMap Dallas article from June 10. They say, 


“Pax & Beneficia Coffee was founded by friends Mouyyad Abdulhadi and Mamdouh Khayat in 2019, when they opened their first location in Las Colinas, at the Gables Water Street mixed-use project. In 2021, they opened a location at the AC Hotel Fort Worth.


They’re known for their Turkish coffee and gourmet food, with house-made syrups and coffee beans from Ethiopia, Kenya, and Guatemala, which they now roast at their own facility in Grapevine. They sell those beans at their shops, as well as coffee drinks.

They’re not cheap: A Turkish coffee is $6, and a French press is $5.50. Cappuccino is $4.25; a mocha is $5.25.


Food-wise, they do toasts with Middle Eastern, Mediterranean, and American themes that can (but not always) include Mediterranean Avocado Toast, Nutella & Fruit Toast, Ricotta Sweetened Toast, Labneh & Za’atar Toast, Za’atar & Feta Toast, and PB&J Toast.”


Pax & Beneficial are the latin translation of peace and blessing and the owners are setting these as the philosophy of their cafe as they hope to invite different cultures and people to their cafe.
