Great breakfast or lunch location west of the airport

We've stopped here a few times on our way to/from Liberia or the airport and yesterday friends ordered pannini's "to go" to take on the plane. Food is good, reasonably priced, and restaurant is air conditioned. A very good option if you are looking to eat near the airport. (East of the Do It... read more

We got off the plane, got our rental car, and immediately asked the rental car lady where to eat nearby. This is the place. It's very clean and modern, close to the airport, and tasty. She said it has the best coffee around, but I didn't try it (but the options looked great). Our food was delicious, and the price... More

Various traditional, and some not quite so traditional, Latin American lunch dishes (sandwiches, quesadillas, etc.), all done solidly. Service with a smile, nice little restaurant.

They are doing lots of things right and are a nice alternative to some of the other early-opening places on the way to and from the airport. Food is well-prepared and tasty.

This place is everything I normally eschew: English-language sign, Pepsi logo, souvenirs. But I wanted breakfast...an American-style breakfast...and this seemed to be my last best shot at it. So I gave it a try. And it was terrific!! I had the American breakfast that came with eggs, potatoes, bacon, pancakes or waffles (I had the waffles), fresh fruit (kiwi, banana... More

Reasonably priced, delicious, and friendly! It's very close to the airport, so it's a great place to stop and relax for a while with a cup of coffee before you carry on with your trip. :)

This is a nice family owned and operated restaurant just 5 minutes away from the airport. Very convenient if you are going to and from the airport or around the area. Very good service, great food. What I like the most is that I can actually see whatever it is that they are preparing. I love an open kitchen. You... More

Each time I drive through Liberia, this is the place I stop. You are greeted warmly, always with a smile. The owners are lovely people and it shines through with the employees as well. The vegetarian Mediterranean panini with cheese is awesome! along with any of the salads. The chai tea is delicious as well as the smoothies. They have... More

This place is approx 6 km from airport going toward beach. Highly recommend the breakfast if you are flying in/ out of Liberia or staying overnight at Hilton Garden or other hotels around airport. Coffee and refreshing drinks are really good and owners are very friendly. Omelettes are delic.
