VIENNA, VA — Lily’s Chocolate & Coffee has arrived in Vienna, bringing an Iraqi specialty and decadent chocolate.
The business held its grand opening Saturday, July 10 at 175 Maple Avenue East. The owners are Saif and Lily Alobaidi, siblings who immigrated from Iraq in 2009.
With their own business, the siblings are introducing Vienna to Lokma, an Iraqi fried pastry paired with a sweet topping. Lokma is traditionally served in Iraq with toppings like honey or sugar syrup. The Vienna business offers their own version of Lokma topped with chocolate.
In fact, just about everything in Lily’s Chocolate has been specially designed, from the cardamom-spiced hot tea and Belgium-imported chocolate to the mousse, cakes, and other bakery-style desserts that Lily makes herself each day. They also hold afternoon Tea Parties.
