LYNN — The Union Cafe celebrates its first anniversary on Monday and owner Charbel Wehbe said business has been fantastic.
“I want to thank the entire community and every customer who has supported my business since day one,” Wehbe said. “I also want to thank my fiancée, Sulma, who has always been there for me.”
Located at 1 Central Square, Union Cafe offers customers hot and iced coffee, hot sandwiches and a variety of pastries. The cafe’s mission statement is to provide a local alternative to large corporate coffee chains. Wehbe said he plans to expand the menu in the coming months.
“We’re going to offer more hot sandwich options and full breakfast options like pancakes and omelettes,” he said. “My clients have recommended it to me and we are going to try it.”
In the summer, Union Cafe plans to do European-style alfresco dining and add an awning to its entrance.
“What sets us apart from the rest of the competition is discipline and consistency,” Wehbe said.
