Liberty only serves pancakes before 11 am so get up and get over there! Such a cool place; the staff is wonderful--makes you feel like family. Sausage patties are huge and tasty! Did I mention the hash browns? The HUGE Mexican omelettes? Closed Sundays and Mondays.

The first thing I must say about this place: Liberty Cafe ruined coffee for me. Their coffee was so good, that I have looked and tried many brands and nothing holds a candle to this. Second: If you want breakfast that tastes like your grandma cooked it all from scratch down to rolling the dough, then put this place on... More

We usually stop at the Liberty Cafe when we travel to Seattle. Their smoked ham is REALLY GOOD! Pancakes tend to be hubcap size, so we usually order French toast. Endless coffee is great. Super omlets. Always cheerful staff. Clean restrooms outside (for customers, & don't forget to return the key!). Latte' stand next door. What more could you asked... More

Exactly like you remember how breakfast used to be. Excellent coffee, crisp hashbrowns, fluffy omelets, buttery toast. Magical.

Great food, one of the best if not the best breakfast around, Home made french fries and outstanding service. I go this way a lot for business and try to time it to stop at least once.

Good food, pleasant atmosphere, excellent waitstaff. Didn't have any pie, and I'm beginning to think that was a mistake. We will make a point of stopping for a piece next time we're through this way.

Saturday was our 3rd time to stop here for pie. Also had breakfast for a late lunch, but the pie is the best! This time, peach ala mode. The crust was delightfully flakey, likely the result of using lard for the crust. We made our 200 mile drive with this quaint little cafe and home town folks distinctly in mind!... More

Always a friendly greeting in this cosy little diner right out of the '50s. Candy serves up their wonderful home-cooked food with warmth & efficiency; she's one of those folks you feel you've known forever. Breakfasts are amazing, the big-as-your-plate pancake is superb, so are the omelets. Burgers are wonderful as is the chicken fried steak. Shelly & Beth cook... More
