The Bread of Life Cafe in Casey County has always been one of my favorite places to visit for Southern food both on their menu and buffet.  My niece and I recently drove down from Frankfort for lunch and as usual the food was wonderful.  Bread of Life Cafe, Liberty, KentuckyWe did not eat breakfast that morning just so we would be extra hungry when we arrived.  Even though it was a weekday the place was busy but they can seat 150 people and we had no trouble getting a table or finding a parking place in the large parking area.  I love the rockers on the front porch that greet you when you arrive if you want to rest before or after a meal.

Two Old Crows at Bread of LifeThis restaurant experience is definitely worth your time and one you will enjoy coming back to over and over again.   Bread of Life Cafe is  located five miles south of Liberty, Kentucky on Highway 127.   The restaurant also provides a safe, supervised environment for some of their higher functioning handicapped residents of the Galilean Home. It gives them an opportunity to feel they are accomplishing something and gives them spending money. These special residents would not be able to thrive in a normal working environment, which is one of the reasons they began this part of their ministry.
