Excellent choice for lunch.  I stopped in for a quick bite and ended up with the Shrimp and Grits special because, well, BACON.  Not light, no sir, not light at all, what with the bacon and dark sauce and what I surmise was butter all up in there.  The shrimp and grits was served with a green salad  precisely and perfectly finished with a tart house dressing.  Thanks to Yelp!, I ended up with a banana nut muffin that made a fine breakfast the next day.Service was prompt and friendly, and juvenile in a good way--the people working at this restaurant are all young folks who are learning by doing.  And they do quite well in the same way you can go to NOCCA to watch jazz or theatre or recitals and end up with performances you would have paid much more to see from professionals.  But I digress: if you are in mid-City or shopping at the Whole Foods around lunchtime, I recommend Liberty's Kitchen highly.

Love the food and the cause! They make the best black bean burger I've had. And they have seasonal specials which is always nice to try something new.

Found this place thanks to Yelp..so happy we did!!It's a small open Cafe adjacent to Whole Foods..found out they are non-profit and teaching teens/young adults about cooking/food prep and the "restaurant" business..I LOVE that!! I totally support what they are doing for the community. We were greeted right away and counter staff was so helpful. I'm not really a breakfast/egg person so wish they would've made lunch items earlier, I really wanted to try the Cajun Shrimp salad..next time!!Now on to the food..absolutely fabulous!! We both had the Turkey/Egg/Avocado on croissant, (home made croissants made on site!!) it was Fantastic..they don't scrimp on any ingredients..plenty of turkey and the eggs were really fluffy. I just wish the croissant was a little larger as I had more inside "stuff" and not enough bread to cover. My side was the potatoes..my gosh they add cheese and bacon and it was SO good..crisp on the outside and soft inside..I think I loved this more than the sandwich Kudos to this company and its staff..these kids/young adults are getting a great experience/education they can carry thru life...I hope this continues..I'll support them and any other places like this!!

I've only tried their breakfast and it is delicious!!! Refresh croissant is A1 ... Breakfast taco are also solid. Potatoes hash is A1 and you can wash that down with a Starbucks (which they also sell) staff is also great, if you a repeat customer they treat you like one.

When I walked in, I noticed the cleanliness and the layout. It was welcoming and fresh. The lady taking our order was pleasant and friendly. The food arrived quickly, but at that time, there wasn't a lot of customers until later. I would visit this place again. I recommend that people try it at least once for themselves. More...

The ladies saved us since it was the only place open in Hot Springs and they prepared some breakfast for us, otherwise we would be hungry all day. They were just opening up so hard to judge the food, we only had avocado toast. The had a lot of speciality teas which was nice. Everything is vegan. More...

I tried this place via a catering event and, let's just say, the few foods we had were delicious! Their baked macaroni and cheese was great! It had that baked, browned top that many people love. The interior was super cheesy and nicely cooked!Their jambalaya was also delicious: flavorful, full of meat, and nicely cooked. The rice was not gummy or hard--just right. Ohhhh...but the bread pudding was absolutely divine. I'll be honest...it did not LOOK "good" and I mistakenly thought it was smothered chicken. But...!!! The taste was awesome. Their bread pudding tastes like a cross between a cinnamon roll and typical bread pudding. The sauce was light and sweet with no heavy Rum flavor at all. I am really excited to try this place in the future to see what their other food items taste like! More...

So I brought my wife's car to Santos Automotive to get an oil change. On a side note, if you're looking for a great mechanic, choose Santos. It's about the only mechanic shop I trust. They do great work at a reasonable/fair price.WHAT WORKED?This was my first visit to Liberty's. As many times as I've been to the Whole Foods next door or the mechanic, I had never set foot in the place. I had wanted to support their work like Cafe Reconcile and Cafe Hope and other organizations. So I ordered the Liberty's Breakfast, which consisted of two eggs my way (I'm partial to scrambled), two slices of bacon, toast and my choice of grits (cheesy or sans cheese), potato hash or fruit. I chose the cheesy grits. Everything was delicious. The eggs were fluffy and seasoned, the grits were hot and, well, cheesy. The cheese was thoroughly incorporated into the grits, not just shredded cheese thrown on top. I really appreciated that. The grits were creamy and only needed a sprinkling of salt and pepper. The bacon had a really good flavor and was crispy and chewy. The toast, however, took me by surprise. I normally write toast off, but this toast was really good. It was chewy with a nice bite and had a good flavor. It paired well with the butter and grape and strawberry jelly. I don't know what kind of bread it was, but there were little pieces of oat flakes on the crust.I ordered an Arnold Palmer, but it's execution didn't meet expectations. It wasn't bad by any means, just different. They used black tea, but I'm probably used to some plain, run of the mill tea in my Arnold Palmers.The place is really cute and looks like it would be a cool place to hangout, something akin to Starbucks or most other cafes. It has ample seating inside with an accompanying patio. The service was great. My server Shantrell ("Trell") appeared to be a little annoyed when I first arrived, but she soon warmed up to me and was professional and sweet in the end. She was knowledgeable about the menu. They accept Apple Pay, which is always a plus, but the feature wasn't working that day. I saw an offer for a free pastry if I checked in and I took advantage of that, of course. Like, yeah!! The pastries that day consisted of a really big blueberry muffin, croissant, lemon ginger bread, zucchini bread and perhaps a couple other items. It was a nice selection. The zucchini bread, which I'm told is gluten free, not that it matters because I can consume gluten and non-gluten and everything else just fine, had the texture of banana bread. It was ok, but there was some grittiness when I swallowed. Not sure what that was all about. I decided to make a pit stop before I left and noticed the bathroom was pretty clean. Always a good sign. I also noted that while it was quiet around 10:00, it was quite bustling by the time I left. WHAT DIDN'T WORK?I'll definitely be back. More...

There is this sweet sweet girl that makes my day every time I see her and she is the Starbucks barista at this location. Man... She goes above and beyond with all the customers she deals with. I do not even feel like going there unless she is there. I was so sad when she was gone on vacation and coffee was not the same without her.With that being said, I would like to say one thing to the management over here. I just witnessed that she looked very overwhelmed because of these two trainees. Those two literally were so rude to her. Essentially, she is the "boss" or "teacher" in this case, trying to teach them how to work at this place yet those two completely ignored the system over here and just did whatever the hell they wanted to do. They had guts to be proud of their behavior because when she told them they cannot just act that way, they fought back at her saying they are on their break. Since when could employees in general ignore the policy when on break Having witnessed this with my own eyes, I talked to her after and YET she was smiley and said it will be alright. You really are putting your VIP/MVP employee in a stressful environment!I understand the motto or concept of Liberty's Kitchen but boy! Yall need to selectively choose as to who you give a chance to work here. I have seen multiple trainees here that were so great and I loved seeing them learning and adjusting to the new workplace but so sad to see incident like today's.But besides that, pretty much all the regular employees at this dining place are legit. Cashier ladies, Kitchen folks and just everybody in general are great great! More...

A food outlet really needs to be something special to get 5 stars from me, but the mission of this cafe is a five star mission! Training young people to have the skills to become restaurant professionals is a cause near and dear to my heart. The specials are very popular and today was the taco salad which seemed to be a it based on the number of folks in line for one. I chose the Poydras burger. It had the Liberty Kitchen secret sauce and it was tasty. The cafe is broken down by stations so there's a hot grill, specials station, salad bar, and a cold sandwich station. You'll pay more at a fast food joint for a lesser quality meal. I spoke with Adam, the manage, and it's clear he has a passion for the mission. Feel good about your next lunch by supporting the community and having a meal here. More...

I've only tried this place for breakfast and afternoon coffee. ReFresh croissant was really good, very filling. I chose potato hash as my side and it was DELICIOUS. Very reasonable price point ($7) for the (hot) sandwich / side.  I also enjoyed a blueberry muffin - on the house because I checked in via the yelp app ;) Starbucks coffee is served. Decent service. Clean tables. Free WiFi. Adequate seating. Moderate noise level; some patrons drop in to order and go while individuals and small groups alike may choose to use the space for productivity. I'll like and would recommend it. More...

HEADS UP: THIS IS A SCHOOL (WITH A CAFÉ)The energy here bubbles forth from every side of you. It's pretty standard for 20-ish entrepreneurs on laptops to hold court bouncing from table to table, or high schoolies to hang out here after class. So don't expect the service to be the most attentive. You can easily wait 5 minutes while a barista updates her Snapchat story. But the quality food is an excellent value at the low price point.

I love this place! I can always count on it for great service, very fresh sandwiches, salads, and sides. They serve Starbucks coffee, which is either a good thing a bad thing depending on who you are, but I think their coffee prices are pretty good and their servers can make you most drinks that you'd order. They have good pastries and desserts too. My favorite dishes are: -Refresh breakfast sandwich-Cowboy Caviar-Fish tacos-Their salad with Granny Smith apples, roasted chicken, candied pecans, bleu cheese, and their house made dressing-Chicken sandwich-Side salad-Their Saturday brunch is deliciousAlways have super courteous staff with smiles on their faces. Such a great cause for the neighborhood too, so make sure to give them your business! More...

So delicious! I got the fish tacos for lunch today, and they were perfect - crispy tortillas (that didn't break at all!), tender grilled fish, and just the right ratio of sauces, lettuce, and pico de gallo. The sauce was not very spicy, which is great for me. There was a cold black-eyed pea salad on the side that was tasty, too. The service was fast and very polite. I will definitely be coming back, and highly recommend Liberty's Kitchen to everyone! More...

Before you hit up the salad bar at Whole Foods, you should head over to Liberty's Kitchen for their signature Liberty's Salad of mixed field greens, house roasted chicken, Granny Smith apples, crumbled bleu cheese, sweet pecans and green onion tarragon vinaigrette. Liberty's Kitchen has a Youth Development Program for New Orleans young adults ranging in age from 16-24. The cashier was in training but did a great job ringing me up with the help of another employee. Everyone on staff has always been so incredibly sweet, and the food comes out fairly quickly! I've dined in and had the salad to-go, and it was on point both times. I'm like a voracious rabbit going to town on this deliciousness. All the ingredients and textures mesh incredibly well from the fresh crunch of the apples and pecans to the not-too-heavy bleu cheese and perfectly cooked chicken. Their dressing...so good. If they bottle it, I'd buy it! For to-go orders they don't skimp on the size of dressing they give you but to be honest you don't need all of it, so save it to dip some bread in later! I haven't tried anything else on the menu yet, but I'll get around to it! You can either dine inside, or outside. The rosemary planters outside could use a little love, but still nice to sit outside on a pretty day! More...

Liberty's kitchen brick and mortar location on Broad street is a great spot. I had been eating their pastries at the adjacent Whole Foods for a good while before they finally opened up the café. They sell Starbuck's coffee here. I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing because a) I think all coffee tastes the same b) I don't know if some free trade organic stuff or.....yeah I have no idea about coffee.The breakfasts and sandwiches are delicious. A breakfast sandwich isn't cheap but it will be loaded with egg and cheese and thick slabs of bacon (if you order a bacon, egg and cheese). The real reason to go to Liberty's Kitchen is their Youth Development Program. All of the proceeds from their food and beverage sales go directly to this program which gives New Orleans youth (ages 16-24) an opportunity to learn the ins and outs of the restaurant industry. They provide their students with experience to build their resumes to help them get other jobs in the food industry. They provide them with uniforms, social skills coaching and even help with future job placement. The most incredible thing that they offer as part of their "Recipe for Success" is they give the individuals in the program access to help with housing, medical care and child care. This is such an unbelievable awesome program. I have seen young men who come through my office from Juvenile Court excel in this program and it seriously just makes me so damn happy I could cry.Support Liberty's Kitchen and you are supporting your city.

I love it here, thanks Jen L for bringing it to my attention (smooches)I love the ambience here.  NOLA Meets Cali.  The outdoor terrace takes me to So-Cali and then I'm catapulted back to Naturally N'Awlins because of the indoor architect; what can a shorts wearing, outdoor loving gal want (Don't answer, that was a rhetorical question)Oh and did I mention they serve lite-bites, Starbucks coffee & Starbucks branded items.  No they don't make the loyalty card, but some of the prices are much cheaper than Starbucks, so #WINNING!!!!Connected to the Rosa Keller Library, which I see allows drinks in a few select areas; you can get your research on while sipping on that skinny mocha double espresso soy latte (or whatever your pleasure, idk if that's even a real drink); anyWHO!!!!Tables in the kitchen-like area allow you to eat a morsel, prepared by the barista & enjoy free WIFI from the library.  Food & surfing the net... #LOVINGITWalk a little further in there are sofas & loungers for a more relaxed visit.  Fireplaces, upstairs sitting areas, community boards & meeting rooms; this place is a hodgepodge of loveliness right in the Broadmoor Area.  Need I mention, the location is just a hop-skip-jump from the CBD, hello  #WINNINGYETAGAINI don't really know the whole story of its existence, but I believe it has something to community revitalization... I'm with it!!!! So now bring on the CUBANO!!!!!! More...

4.25/5 noms and convenientso i've been stopping in for various work-related meetings - breakfast/coffee and/or lunch and/or afternoon coffee pick-me-up and it's been great. the staff are very conscientious at every step of the transaction and i feel solid each time. i've availed the yelp check-in for a free pastry a couple times - some things are in house and some things are from shake sugary, i think. any of those scones. any of them! and the "bigger" food is also pretty decent. i've chomped on a few sandwiches now and they are filling.my favorite isn't actually available on the shelf - if you put in a catering/party order for their chocolate chip cookies, they'll come in these scrumptious mini versions. gahhh i can eat an entire tray by myself!oh and you know, there's also the great mission they have with working with our young people, but obvi you already knew that. if you didn't, check out their site!

I didn't realize this cafe was so much more than a coffee shop. I used to grab my quick meals at the hot bar at WF next door, no more! I've had the black bean burger and the beef burger. Both were delicious. The only burger I've had in the city that I like more is Tallulah's. The side salad is substantial. The green onion vinaigrette and the balsamic vinaigrette are both winners. Getting a tasty, fresh meal for ~$10. So happy-making. Plus, free wifi! More...

Finally got to stop back in and see the new/old cafe at the Keller Library. LOVE that this is a Liberty Kitchen project so at risk students are learning job skills and making money.My iced tea was perfect. My blueberry scone was more muffin-y than scone-y but delicious nonetheless. The cafe space was clean and airy.The parking lot was full at 10 am on Thursday so yay for library users...since the cafe was not. But I found parking on the street, under a shadetree so it was all good. Just wish their hours were a bit longer so I could go more often. 10 to 5 is tough for me. Now I need to find a day to go get one of their sandwiches. More...

I have loved Liberty's Kitchen since they opened their old location at Broad and Tulane.  Their white beans are delicious and the shrimp and grits rival some of the best lunch spots in town.  It's a mission driven spot, giving "at-risk" kids an opportunity to learn skills and have a job.  I certainly appreciate giving them my business for this reason alone!  Since they've moved to Whole Foods, they've really exploded. The restaurant is really beautiful and their menu has expanded to include more sandwiches and breakfast items.  They also serve Starbucks, which is a nice perk as there aren't any other coffee shops in that area of town.  It's a nice spot to meet for lunch and they offer a private room for lunch meetings.  I love that instead of getting a number for your order, you get a New Orleans neighborhood sign.

Liberty's Kitchen is a great organization for youth in New Orleans. They not only provide a strong job training program for at-risk young people in a nurturing, supportive environment, they also help youth with life skills development and a foundation of supports for healthy, independent living.The new space in the ReFresh building has a bright, cheery vibe. It's a great spot for a casual lunch or breakfast. They also serve Starbucks coffee and other drinks as well as pastries from local bakeries, so you can stop by in the morning for some yummy fuel to start your day. My go-to item on the lunch menu is the Cajun Cobb salad, but you can't go wrong with any option. The Liberty's Salad is excellent, as well as the Fish Tacos, Shrimp and Grits, and MVP Burger. The brownies are also quite delicious. More...

I'm so glad this place reopened! It's better than ever. Great service, too. Try the lemon ginger loaf. It's heaven.

Am absolutely in love with this place! I already was a fan of Starbucks, but add some good for you food too?! Wholy moley! Yup, this chick is hooked! The vegetarian red beans and rice is my go to, but the sandwiches and other specialities are just as good! Great portion sizes and reasonably priced. Plus if you check in on yelp, you get free goodies!!! More...

Liberty's Kitchen is bringing its magic to Broadmoor. Delicious.  Enjoy a drink and pastry or sandwich after you visit the library or after you have taken a class or workshop at the Arts and Wellness Center or at the community center.

I LOVE the Green Dot and cannot recommend it enough. Sandwiches and pastries are amazing, smoothies are really tasty (and healthy!), and their selection of coffee drinks rivals any coffee shop.The location is great and the staff are always super friendly. More...

LOVE this place. Especially the pressed sandwiches, smoothies and banana-chocolate chip bread. So excited to have Liberty's Kitchen in Broadmoor. The space has an awesome outdoor patio area to meet/eat outdoors in nice weather. More...

The Green Dot Cafe has been an off and on fixture at Keller Library for years but is now at its best, being run by Liberty's Kitchen. Not only does it offer the normal coffee shop menu, but its in a library and community center, there's easy parking and, best of all, there's a great outdoor patio to enoy your coffee or have that special meeting.

Very nice place. Spacious with super friendly staff. Very clean (there was a lot of polishing as we ate breakfast - nice to see in a indoor/outdoor cafe.) We had baked goods which were good and a fried egg sandwich which was very nice. A lovely healthy alternative to breakfast at home. More...

Finally got around to trying this place out after missing it at its old location further up Broad Ave. Hardly having the opportunity to eat out for breakfast during breakfast hours, i was glad to get around to checking this spot from my bookmarks.The inside is nice, i dig the use of the wood theme, it's clean and cool. Instead of boring ol' number markers for orders, you're given the name of a neighborhood of the city as an identifier of your order. I like the little added local flare to things, it works without being too cheesy. Simply place your order with the clerk at the counter, get your hood, and it's brought out to you.I had the New Orleans breakfast sandwich which is basically a bomb ass home-made breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg and cheese with hollandaise on white toast and a side (I got fruit) for $6, can't beat it. I'd definitely call ahead for one of these sandwiches if I'm on the go.I'll certainly be back a few more times to try some of their lunch items. Note that most breakfast items, from what I saw, stop being served at 11am. So get in early if you need that traditional fix. More...

Between the wealth of treasures of the public library and the rich, wellness of the community center, Rosa Keller is an oasis in the fertile Broadmoor community. Renewed in that oasis is the Green Dot Café by Liberty's Kitchen. There, you can be refreshed with coffee creations, tasteful pastries and hot paninis. Like the larger café and restaurant located north on Broad (that houses the youth development program), you can find some of the Liberty's Kitchen classics you may have come to enjoy: Liberty's Salad, Caramel Brownies and Starbucks Coffee. New are the paninis, smoothies and increased snack options for the kids. This is not a direct replica of Liberty's Kitchen. It's like the hipper little brother. More...

This is a review for Liberty's Kitchen's *catering*.Michael, Catering Coordinator, was awesome. She was responsive, capable, flexible, patient...all things that made my life much easier over the course of a four-day Summit I was planning. We had Liberty's do four meals I think - each one was delicious, high-quality, unique, and on-time. More than that, Michael talked me off the ledge when I had last-minute freak-outs such as not having enough utensils, or did I need three times as many scones I wanted to hug her on many occasions. I will definitely use Liberty's again, and recommend them when others need an excellent caterer. Thank you! More...

This was excellent tasting food!I just ate here today for the first time. . I was really impressed. The  caesar side was wonderfully fresh and tangy. The Chicken Mushroom Melt was incredibly tasty. It was the best sandwich I  have eaten in at least a year. The carmelized onions were perfectly balanced with the all white meat chicken breast and ciabatta bread. YUMMMM I'm planning my return.

Stopped in the newly opened Liberty's Kitchen location at Whole Foods and I decided to do soup and salad for lunch. I got a hot soup from Whole Foods next door and ordered the Cajun Cobb Salad and man was that a great choice. Chopped Romaine with Pan Seared Shrimp, Sliced Smoked Sausage, Crumbled Bleu Cheese, Fresh Guacamole, Sliced Cucumber, Pickled Red Onion and a Sliced Hard Boiled Egg with Bleu Cheese Dressing, whats not to like there. This is definitely in my lunch rotation. Amazing and for a good cause too. More...

Somewhat  near  so I stopped in to test it out. No biscuits  but good food  and service in the morning. Great  concept. People learn the restaurant  business and go on to work in the city. All the food is well prepared by local students. Large cooking school  next door  with organic   grocery store. Nice  morning respet  for  good  cause. They have scone  but not biscuits. What's up with that. More...

Black bean burger is tasty and huge. Lots of cumin. A soft texture but it holds together. The bun is really good and it's dressed with avocado. I got the beet salad which I enjoyed but I wish the menu had listed it had blue cheese in the salad. The server offered to get another one but it was fine bc my companion loves blue cheese so I just picked around it and shared. His potato salad was good too. Service was great. More...

Fresh and delicious!!!  GO!!  Always surprises me. This little cafe serves insanely delicious, flavorful and you-can-taste-the-freshness food. The space is clean and has good vibes. Try the black bean burger or the grilled veggie sandwich. (And I'm not even vegetarian!!!) Cowboy caviar and the potato salad are delicious.Love all of it, as well as the purpose of the place -- Look it up if you don't know :)GO TRY IT!!!! More...

I dropped by the Whole Food Store at N. Broad & Bienville for some provisions and decided to have lunch at the Liberty Kitchen adjacent to the store.  The restaurant features a modernistic decor with lots of natural lighting.  There is a New Orleans flare to the identification of your table as you await your food order.  Instead of using numbers, placards are used with the names of various New Orleans neighborhoods.  For example, the neighborhood name printed on the placard for my table was "Lower Ninth Ward" and a nearby table was identified as "Broadmoor."  The staff are all disciples of the restaurant mogul, Emeril Lagasse.  The menu is limited to primarily Salads, Sandwiches, Red Beans & Rice, Chicken & Andouille Gumbo and a Quiche Du Jour.I opted for the Cajun Cobb Salad which consisted of Chopped Romaine with Pan Seared Shrimp, Sliced Smoked Sausage, Crumbled Bleu Cheese, Fresh Guacamole, Sliced Cucumber, Pickled Red Onion and a Sliced Hard Boiled Egg with Bleu Cheese Dressing.  The salad dressing that was provided with the salad seemed more like a Ranch Dressing and I would have much more preferred some other type of dressing.  However, the salad was really tasty and invigorating.  All that to say that I shall return and I'll certainly explore more of their menu options.
