You can dine in, carry out or order from their catering menu, and they offer more than just pizza. 

Whether you're a coffee connoisseur or just want to grab some java on the go, you've got to try the concentrated, bold flavor of Turkish coffee at Pax & Beneficia. Loosely translated, Pax & Beneficia means peace blessings in Latin, which is captured in their shop with the decor, drink offerings and great customer service. Although they serve all kinds of coffee and delicious pastries, this independently-owned coffee shop brings a world of flavor to Las Colinas.
