It's the county's oldest restaurant, a place born of the railroad, a place where presidents have dined. Now, the historic Saugus Cafe in Santa Clarita has been purchased by two veteran employees, adding a new twist to the diner's 112-year history. In June, longtime waitress Gaye Libby and longer-time bartender Alfredo Mercado bought the 24-hour San Fernando Road eatery after a combined 26 years working behind its counters.
