White Rose Coffeehouse Is Opening in Lynn

A new coffee spot is on its way to the North Shore, and the person behind it comes from a popular restaurant nearby.

According to its Facebook page, White Rose Coffeehouse is planning to open in Lynn, with the Central Square space featuring food, drink, live music, poetry, and also having an art gallery. A source tells us that one of the people behind the place was a longtime worker at The Lobster Shanty, a restaurant in Salem that was once featured on the Food Network's "Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives."

White Rose Coffeehouse is moving into the space where Cafe Moka had been, along with Gulu-Gulu Cafe before it moved to Salem.

The address for this new spot in Lynn is: White Rose Coffeehouse, 56 Central Square, Lynn, MA, 01901. Its Facebook page can be found at

[November 3 update: According to a Facebook post from the place, White Rose Coffeehouse has soft-opened, with its grand opening being sometime this week.]
