      Thinking of going for lunch tomorrow. Any current opinions on Liberty Belle or are there better places for a sit-down indoor air-conditioned lunch in Liberty Village?

        Considering the heat, no. DH loved the savoury crepe!

          Liberty Belle is great, go and and enjoy. Probably the best restaurant currently in Liberty Village.

            I love Liberty Belle Bistro. Hubby and I were there last month and everything was perfect. The portions are on the small side, but sufficient. I prefer quality over quantity and was impressed with the quality of the dishes. We had a salted caramel chocolate tart for dessert that was divine. The handsome owner/chef came to our table to chat. I think I have a bit of crush.:-)

            In the words of my brother, "over freakin rated". Haven't been myself but I trust his tastebuds.

              Why does he think it's over rated? What was his experience and what did he order?

                He had the La Belle Burger. Said it was bland, the frites weren't very good, and the homemade ketchup tasted like boiled down unripened tomatoes.

                  I can't speak to the burger, as I haven't had it but I have eaten the steak frites and they were perfect frites. The frites I had were the right size, crisp and well seasoned. The homemade kertchup I found to be close to Heinz but with a deeper flavor

              I was expecting a small neighbourhood bistro and was delighted that it was exactly that.

              The zinc ceiling and varied retro-kitschy salt-and-pepper shakers were a cute touch. We got airplanes on our table.

              Had a $12 glass of Organized Crime pinot gris after the helpful server brought 2 wines to "try first". 3x markup seems steep as the wine is $19 per bottle at cost.

              My omelette du jour contained house-smoked turkey (unfortunately, tiny dried-out pieces), red pepper and feta. The omelette was overall very acceptable. A side salad and side potato rosti-latke fried puck with homemade ketchup rounded out the dish. No toast to be seen anywhere! I was too distracted by conversation to ask about toast. $12 for the omelette dish.
