Gluten-free items help liberate diners at Cafe Liberty

CARROLLWOOD — Chicken and waffles usually isn't a dining option for those following a gluten-free diet, but at Cafe Liberty Coffee & Bistro, it's just one of the many gluten-free options available. In fact, 90 percent of the items on the menu are gluten-free.

"There seemed to be big need for it," said co-owner Marni Frank.

Frank and her husband, James, own and operate Cafe Liberty. They originally started out offering daily breakfast and lunch, but due to requests from customers, dinner is now available Wednesday through Saturday from 5 to 9 p.m. There is also live music on Friday and Saturdays nights.

For breakfast, diners can choose from items such as egg sandwiches, omelettes, biscuits and gravy and waffles. All coffee drinks are made from beans that are freshly roasted in-house. For lunch, soups, salads, burgers and sandwiches, such as the smothered short ribs grilled cheese, are available.

"We use the freshest and finest ingredients," Marni Frank said. "We use all natural, cage-free eggs and all natural, antibiotic-free chicken."

Cafe Liberty Coffee & Bistro offers discounts for military and first responders, as well as a loyalty rewards program. It's located at 17695 N Dale Mabry Highway, and opens daily at 7 a.m.

Westchase gets new doggie day care

Four-legged, furry family members have a new place to spend the day while their owners are at work. WestFetch is now offering doggie day care at their new 2,200-square-foot facility that sits on over an acre of land.

"It's like they're at home, except they have some buddies with them," said Craig Muniz, owner and president.

Since 2005, WestFetch has provided pet-sitting, boarding, and dog-walking services to residents of Westchase, Citrus Park and surrounding areas.

Muniz said he saw a need to expand their boarding capabilities and services, so he purchased and renovated a house with a large fenced yard.

"We wanted something that was more natural and more spacious that they could go and enjoy," Muniz said. "We have tons of space for the dogs to come out and play and run around."

Muniz said it's easier on dogs' bodies to run on a natural surface like grass.

Inside the renovated house, there are plenty of dog beds and couches for any canines that want to take a break from playing in the yard. The slip-resistant, waterproof floors are made of sealed concrete.

As an added convenience to clients, WestFetch offers a free pickup and dropoff service for the doggie day care.

The cost for doggie day care is $30 per day, and the service is available Monday-Friday.

WestFetch is located at 8010 Beaty Grove Drive. For more information, call (813) 333-1004, or visit westfetch.com.
