The Libery Cafe is a lovely little spot in Bernal Heights. They serve a modern take on comfort food that both satisfies and delights. Their chicken pot pie is not to be missed nor is their famous Banana Cream Pie which has been exclaimed over in Gourmet Magazine. The service is always friendly and they have a nice wine selection.
In the back of the main restaurant, down a side alley is a the Liberty's Bakery. There, they serve all manner of coffees and delicious baked treats including croissants and fruit turnovers which go fast. There are a few outdoor tables and lovely little set of interior tables that remind me of an italian bistro.
It is a little expensive for comfort food, but worth the indulgence from time to time, particularly if you have the pie.
