Casablanca Coffee – Fort Worth, Texas

The signs on the outside only say COFFEE.

Casablanca Coffee has been open for almost 10 years.  Located in Downtown Fort Worth, but far away from the vibrant Sundance Square area, this place deserves a visit.

Although it was busy when I was there, you are under the impression you have stumbled upon a hidden and magical little place.

I have been by so many times but I have never gotten a chance to go in. Today I decided to make it my lunch destination, and I am so very glad I did.

Casablanca Coffee is a small operation that is big on customer service and has an interesting offering of food and beverages.

The decor has your eyes wandering from one thing to the next. Musical instruments, rich colors, Ingrid Bergman, big impressive furniture, and indoor & outdoor seating make your visit comfortable and inviting.

I spoke Diss, the owner from Morocco. He makes a point to have a personal interaction with his customers and I like that. Warm and friendly, he makes sure everyone is happy.

Breakfast is offered as well as lunch. Several bakery items, fresh fruit, and yogurt beckon to you from a display right by the counter.

I was there during lunch. Their Gyro is the best seller, but today I had the Chicken Salad on a toasted croissant. It came with chips and a flavored ice tea.  I gave in and had a Cheese Danish too.

After you place your order, pop into Back Door Book Shop, a short little walk around the corner.  Mostly old and out of print books, you get the feeling you are searching for treasure.  You don’t know what you are looking for, but you know it’s there.

The croissant was soft yet flaky. The Chicken salad was all white meat and filling but not heavy. The fruit flavored tea was fresh and not too strong.  The Danish was really big and man was it good.

They have several coffee drinks and tea offered. I am anxious to get back to try the Moroccan Mint Tea.

Closed on the weekends, you will have to make your visit during the week.
