Delicious food; we usually opt for delivery, though.

Some of the best Indian cuisine I've had, not overly fancy or creative but straightforward classic dishes. My must-haves are the vegetable pakoras (which come with a very tasty spicy-sweet dipping sauce), murgh makhani (butter chicken), paneer saag, and a rice dish called peas palao. With some naan and papadums and raita and mango chutney, it's more than plenty of food for two -- the portions are generous and the food is flavourful and delicious.

We usually call for delivery, and I'm guessing they do most of their business as delivery/take-out or catering, because the one time we ate in the restaurant it was almost empty -- the service was prompt and pleasant, but the one server did seem a trifle bored when not actively serving us (possibly to be expected with only two tables occupied), and eating with so many empty tables around us did feel a bit odd.

It's not a cheap meal, but the value is good in terms of the quantity and quality of the food -- this is definitely my top choice when I feel like Indian food in the comfort of my own home, and the delivery service is excellent (the food is always delivered steaming hot and the delivery driver is very friendly and polite).

Liberty Bakery3699 Main Street, Vancouver
I always buy my daughter's birthday cake here!

For my birthdays when I was little, my parents used to get a traditional Swedish Princess cake from a place called Elsie's Bakery. Liberty & Gunnar Gustafson eventually moved and opened Liberty Bakery on Main Street, but you can still order Princess cakes, and they are every bit as heavenly as ever: if you like cake and cream and marzipan, there's no cake more delicious than this!

Some of my other favourite things from Liberty Bakery are the black bean soup and the turkey pesto pannini (my lunch of choice when I'm in the neighbourhood), the coffee cake, and the pastries (in particular a clever little thing called a "potato" -- it looks just like a potato but is actually a marzipan-covered treat). The beverage choices are pretty standard, but the pitchers of lemonade are nice in the summer.

The service is very much counter service, not table service (though they will bring things out to you if there's a wait, as with grilled sandwiches) -- I don't mind this but some may not like it.

The prices are very reasonable for what you get, and the atmosphere is pleasant, with original artwork and unique furniture. The washroom is clean. The only downside is that Liberty Bakery occupies a smallish space so you can't always be sure of getting a table, especially at lunchtime.
