Establishment
“Swing by the Old Liberty Theatre for a good cup of coffee & check out a little of Ridgefield's history. Built in 1946, the theatre now houses a coffee shop and mini cafe, but still hosts musicians and performers from across the globe for nighttime performances. A good place to buy & taste locally grown coffee.”
