I've been a customer of the Liberty Café for a couple of decades. My first visit was on a lark. I opted for the fried egg sandwich - it's on the menu as bacon & fried egg sandwich, but they'll skip the bacon for you...More

This is a very local restaurant recommended by a friend and glad he did. We stopped for lunch and the staff were very friendly and helpful with suggestions. Food and coffee were very good and the rhubarb pie at the end was worth the trip....More

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...More

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...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...More
