My daughter and I drove to Glen Rose recently just to have lunch at the Storiebook Café and to visit Dinosaur World. We found the little restaurant to be quite charming and packed with customers. We stood at the front waiting for a long time until a server in the back thought to tell us to choose a place to... More

I would recommend coming here with the ladies while out for a day of shopping and fun. Good pie if everyone wants to enjoy a treat. The food is good, but nothing to write home about. Be sure you are not on a tight schedule as it is not food served fast.

Absolutely the best food. Fresh, lots of variety. Fantastic salads, sandwiches and wraps. Peach tea is awesome. And the dessert menu is good too. Very clean. Very friendly waitresses.

This is the best place to have a family lunch in Glen Rose. There were 8 of us and the service was great. They have a back play room for kids. The kids sandwiches came in dinosaur shapes!

This is some of the most authentic homemade Mexican ice cream I have had outside of Mexico itself. My favorite ice cream is coconut and their homemade ice cream had chunks of coconut! Great way to cool off after a trip through Fossil Rim Wildlife Center.

9 of us had lunch here - we were in a large back room that worked great as we had 4 kids with us. They were very busy so while we waited for our food the kids played in the "dress up room". Ages 3,5,9, and 11. They had a great time. The kids grilled cheese came shaped like dinosaurs.... More

We came to the Storiebook Cafe last year towards the end of our family summer vacation. We loved the atmosphere and the food so much that we planned our first vacation of the summer to go to Glen Rose and the Storiebook Cafe. Again, it did not disappoint! Our girls love the playroom and playing dress up. We love to... More

I love the soup and sandwiches, small hometown atmosphere. We've returned on multiple occasions, always a pleasant experience. Vintage Texas restaurant.

This was an amazing place to have lunch on my daughter's 8th birthday. It was a charming place, with friendly staff and delicious, simple fare.
