Serving breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner, this cafe in Liberty Center is a must-have for any relaxing trip. Regardless of what time of the day you decide to go, the food is locally grown, organic, and delicious. But personally, this is a brunch favorite. Their Cloud Nine Pancakes are light and fluffy, made with ricotta and topped off with maple syrup and fresh bananas. Choose from nine different breakfast cocktails, including the classic mimosa (a staple for any girls day brunch!) Check out the full menu here
