Where can you get breakfast any hour of the day? Liberty Diner of course!
The restaurant, located at 2929 Goshen Road in Fort Wayne, recently celebrated its 10 year anniversary. A quick glance over the menu is enough to see why this place has been a favorite haunt for foodies looking for good food at a reasonable price.
Traditional breakfast items and lunch favorites tempt customers. It’s the variety in cuisines that leaves a lasting impression. After all, it’s not everywhere you can find quiche, burgers , lasagna and souvlaki on the same menu. It's like traveling the world without leaving your seat.
Breakfast is served all day and the 24-hour Friday and Saturday hours make it convenient for a late night (or post-date) bite. Customers can choose from tempting items like omelets, quiches, frittatas and even lox.
Owner George Symnriotis came to Fort Wayne by way of Greece, New York, and Chicago. The Symnriotis have made the city their home and are invested in the community.
It’s clear his time in the Big Apple has served as an inspiration for the menu, as well as the décor. Prints of famous New York attractions adorn the walls. As a tribute to New York City landmark Lady Liberty, the wait staff sport patriotic American flag ties. Most of the staff has worked there since opening day. And visitors will notice the friendliness of the staff is just as generous as the portions.
Although New York City inspired, the diner has not adopted big city prices (or the rudeness). The Early Bird Special, available from 5:30 to 8 a.m. Monday through Sunday, costs $4.25. Most dinners run about $8.00.
Liberty Diner is open Sunday through Thursday 5:30 a.m. to 11 p.m. and 24-hours on Friday and Saturday. Also, be sure to find them on Facebook.
