Step into the world of an authentic, nineteenth-century Turkish coffeehouse, where you can taste traditional dishes prepared by our celebrated chef Mr. Cebrail Demirtas; 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 our rich and delicious homemade Baklava.

The Flying Carpet Turkish Café is located in a restored  1909 bungalow, which was completely 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. The original ambience of the house has been preserved and enhanced with antiques from the Ottoman Empire, making you feel you’ve traveled overseas to a small cosmopolitan café somewhere in the Levant.
