A Place for Community

“We’re a place for community, not just a place to eat.”

Laura and Seth Carey have been serving the Kendall Yards neighborhood through their family restaurant, Versalia Pizza (formerly Veraci), since 2014. Over the years, the restaurant has maintained a strong, loyal following as a place for the community to not just grab a bite to eat but to gather and enjoy one another’s company. So, when the right opportunity presented itself to open a second location, the Careys were eager to move forward.

“We’re excited to bring what we’ve established and fostered in Kendall Yards to Liberty Lake,” shares Laura. “Seth and I are very loyal to Liberty Lake because we started at the Liberty Lake Farmers Market with our mobile oven back in 2009 and have long-standing relationships with customers there.”

It was at that market where Laura and Seth would meet Joe Frank of Greenstone, who would sell them the idea of opening a restaurant in Liberty Lake. (His father, Jim Frank, had sold the couple on opening their Kendall Yards location.) Already immersed in the community, the location in the River District—next to Orchard Park and in the heart of a residential neighborhood within walking distance, while still easily accessible to everyone—was an ideal situation for the Careys. “Our customers from the Coeur d’Alene Wednesday Night Market will also have a winter option that is that much closer!” smiles Laura.

Guests will enjoy the same flavorful wood-fired thin-crust pizza as its sister location, along with a variety of appetizers and salads. The menu will be expanded to offer more quick to-go items such as prepackaged salads, charcuterie, and kits for making your own pizza at home!

The earthy and bright space, designed by Uptic Studios, seats approximately 50 patrons inside and offers a large seasonal outdoor patio. The style of service will be a bit different from its Kendall Yards’ location, as customers will place their order at the counter, receive a number, and the staff will bring the food to the guest. They are also excited to offer their new Mug Club with the hope it too will foster community building within the space.

When looking for a warm, inviting atmosphere to sit and watch the snow fall, Versalia Pizza in Liberty Lake or Kendall Yards is the place to go.
