Patika Coffee

We get asked what "Patika" means a lot. We took it from the Turkish word for "footpath" (or alley). The first coffee houses in the world were in Istanbul, and their popularity as gathering places got them outlawed for fear of too much free thought and resistance to the sultan. To survive, they relocated to spots a bit more hidden: In the alleys and footpaths of the city.

Our unique kitchen-facing counter provides an immersive dining atmosphere where every seat is the best in the house. When you dine at our counter, we don’t just bring our food to you. We create an experience, together.

Confituras

Confituras was born in the summer of 2010 when, after several years of preserving the local bounty that Austin’s farmers’ markets had to offer, owner Stephanie McClenny was ready to reach out and share her love of preserving in the form of a small jam company. It did not take long for the emerging local food loving community in Austin to recognize and appreciate her commitment to quality, seasonality, and really good jam. Along the way Confituras was awarded the 2011, 2013, 2014, and 2015 Local Hero Awards by the readers of Edible Austin and was also recognized nationally, winning Good Food Awards in 2011 and 2012, 2014, and 2015. The Austin Food & Wine Alliance awarded Confituras a culinary grant in 2013 for their ‘Preserving Austin’ project, which is an emerging program that refers to both preserving the local, seasonal bounty and preserving our own local canning history and heritage. Confituras offers intensive canning classes at their commercial kitchen space as well as at urban farms and shops around town and provides free demonstrations at farmers’ markets and non-profit organizations. They currently operate at 2 weekly farmers’ markets and are available at several locally-owned shops, farm stands, and local food delivery services across the state of Texas. Stephanie lives in beautiful South Austin with her husband and a menagerie of animals picked up along the way.
