Lily’s Cafe opened in 2014 and in 2022, the restaurant closed its extended hours and remained open solely for breakfast and brunch. To celebrate the return of the eatery's extended hours, and other significant changes, the eatery will hold grand re-opening events starting May 24.

The eatery is owned by Lily and Jorge Recinos and their son, Daniel Recinos, is the director of operations. Daniel said in an email the restaurant has undergone a brand overhaul.

“This strategic direction was born in November 2023 after a period of introspection within the owners,” Daniel said. “The challenges presented in the past years necessitated a change. In order for the restaurant to become anew, there needed to be a transformation in all aspects.”

Daniel lists a new logo, menu and brand identity as changes customers will notice.

“Our re-imagined menu incorporates all aspects that have made Lily's a neighborhood staple for almost ten years,” he said. “Alongside celebrating North Texas' culinary heritage through our classic southern-style breakfast and Tejano items like our cowboy omelet, chilaquiles and enchiladas, we have expanded our menu to share the vibrant culture and traditional cuisine of Guatemala with dishes such as our skirt steak churrasco and our signature camarones en crema [shrimp in mushroom sauce].”

Another noteworthy change is that Lily’s has received a liquor license and now offers imported and domestic beer, cocktails, and several types of frozen and on-the-rocks margaritas.

The restaurant is currently open daily from 7 a.m.-10 p.m. Starting May 24, there will be daily reopening events such as drink specials and karaoke night. A ribbon cutting ceremony will be held on June 1.
