The Flying Carpet Turkish Café
Step into the world of an authentic nineteenth-century Turkish coffee-house where you can enjoy lunch and dinner prepared from genuine Ottoman recipes, sip steaming hot cardamom-scented Turkish coffee, drink a glass of traditional black tea, and even try a narghileh or water pipe.
The Flying Carpet Turkish Café occupies a 1909 all-wooden bungalow constructed of two-hundred year old longleaf pine. It is located on the edge of the historic Fairmount neighborhood just off Fort Worth's popular West Magnolia Avenue. The original ambience of the house has been preserved and enhanced by its owner, Brent Hyder. His Ottoman Empire antiques and carpets take you back in time to an old-world café in Turkey while Chef Cebrail Demirtaš takes pride in serving classic recipes from his homeland of Malatya, Turkey.
Step into the world of an authentic, nineteenth-century Turkish coffeehouse, where you can taste traditional dishes prepared by our celebrated chef Mr. Cebrail Demirtaš; browse and purchase Turkish rugs collected by owner Brent Hyder during his travels in Turkey; and sip a narghileh (water pipe) after you’ve finished your last bite of one of our authentic Turkish desserts. . The Flying Carpet Turkish Café is located in a restored 1909 bungalow built of the now almost extinct longleaf pine at the corner of Washington and West Magnolia Avenues, on the edge of the historic Fairmount neighborhood. You will feel you have traveled overseas to a small cosmopolitan café, somewhere in the Levant, when you dine in the original ambience of this beautifully preserved house that has been carefully enhanced with antiques from the Ottoman Empire. We are always BYOB (no charge for glassware). Reservations are not required, but suggested. To schedule a personal appointment to view our off-site Turkish rugs, call our friend and visiting rug merchant Mr. Abdullah Gundogdu for an appointment at 845-558-7657.
