But, it may not continue to be her only such venture.
"The amount of support that I receive on behalf of Liza’s, from guests, customers, family and friends is an indescribable feeling. What I have always imagined as my first of many Liza’s has been an endless means of fulfillment," Morgan said after the event.
Liza's is a plant-based healthy food cafe established last year to offer everything from smoothies to açaí bowls to breakfast and lunch. Everything in house is gluten- and dairy-free. You can see the extensive menu here.
Moving her fledgling business "from Broadway to 3rd Street, a space that is nine times bigger than our first platform, has unfolded into this warming, bright and welcoming spot offering all that my mind has created and envisioned. To see it come alive, to live it, to watch it in action from afar has been the greatest gift of all time.
"I am grateful beyond words to be a part of the City of Troy. Troy fosters a robust sense of community, a decidedly free spirit, and a seamless juxtaposition of promise that I’m certain will continue over the years. I am in love with this city and all that is a part of it."
Liza's is located at 53 3rd Street. Hours: Monday through Thursday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Phone: 518-805-8881.
