Interesting, unique little place

Setting is unique. It's definitely NOT a chain. Worth a trip, for sure. We love small-town places that are different. Food is good. Coconut creme pie was very good.

Great ambiance surrounded by books and fun to look at Devore. Sandwiches were nothing special but enjoyable. The Acacado Bacon and Cheese really needed cooked on a griddle to melt th cheese to elevate the sandwich to the next level. Service was slow but I guess I need to shed my big city hurry. Not a bad stop if you... More

This place is adorable and has great food and service. It's so quaint and the peach iced tea served in large mason jars is delicious! The BLT and triple turkey club were tasty. My favorite was the sweet and spicy pickles garnishing the plate. Yum! Don't skip this place next time you are in the area.

Great lunch at a wonderful cafe. Food and service was fun and great. A child's tea party was going on, and it looked like a wonderful time.

Storiebook Café has great food in a casual atmosphere. Their wraps are delicious and the turkey club on sourdough is amazing! I also enjoy the 60's music they play. If you are in a hurry, I would recommend calling in your order ahead of time.

This was the first visit to Storiebook Cafe. It's a cute, comfortable place to eat and read. Lots of books on the wall. We ordered a Reuben, salad and a Dublin root beer for lunch. The sandwich was delicious and the bottle of root beer was amazing. We also had the Brownie Supreme as well as the bread pudding for... More

When I travel I always try and visit independent book stores. From the moment I walked through the door, I fell in love with Storiebook. I browsed the floor to ceiling shelves of mostly used books and found a couple of good reads. Although I did not eat there, I wish I would have. Food looked delicious. People that worked... More

This is a charming, fun eclectic cafe! There is so much to see and experience here. The books on the walls are for sale. The decor is wonderful. So much work and thought has gone into every table, wall, shelf, etc. I took my daughter there for her birthday and they brought her a special dessert when they found out... More

We stop by Storiebook about 1-2 times a year. Last weekend we stopped by during a busy lunch hour. Our sandwiches were exceptional. My daughter ordered the triple stack turkey club sandwich and the waitress recommended a half serving with soup. She chose the dumpling soup and it was so good. I had the veggie wrap as I nearly always... More

This place is truly amazing. Friendly and great sense of humor. The food is perfect. The service was great. The kids play room was recently remodeled and it really opened up the space. I will be recommending this little cafe and I will be back.
