Lili's Cafe opens in Metropolis building in downtown Woodburn
Metropolis Marketplace in Downtown Woodburn has a new coffee shop.
Lili's Cafe opened Nov. 30, with free coffee being served from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m.
Owner Lilia Giron, who has been a Woodburn resident for 15 years, purchased the business from Coco's Coffee House, which had originally occupied the site inside 347 N. Front St.
"I had a dream to own a small business," Giron said. "Now I have that business dream, but there are also challenges that come with it."
She decided to go into the coffee business because she noticed that the only other coffee in town was Starbucks and Dutch Bros.
"In the state where we live it's cold and in general coffee is very popular," she said. "I hope people hear that we have local coffee and great coffee."
She said that among her specialities is Mexican chocolate.
Lili's Cafe is open Monday through Saturday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
