This is a very unique place to eat at! Not only are you surrounded by books but you are also welcomed by the friendly staff! Excellent food!! We didn't have to wait very long for our food! You can actually by the books around you! This is a must visit!!

After a Fossil Rim tour, I stopped in at the Storiebook Café for lunch based on other TripAdvisor reviews. Did not have to wait for a table on a Saturday about 12:30p. Wait staff was friendly. I had a roast beef and cheddar sandwich toasted which was satisfying. Price was reasonable. Good lunch spot when you have an opportunity to... More

My friend and I stopped on our way through Glen Rose and were really glad we did. Cafe was crowded but service was quick. My friend had a roast beef and cheddar sandwich and said it was excellent. My half sandwich on sour dough was outstanding and it was paired with some chicken and dumpling soup which was very good.... More

I don't understand the positive reviews this place gets. We went there twice while visiting Fossil Rim Wildlife Center. The first day they were closed at noon even though this was within the posted hours. The next day they were open. The food was good and the service was terrible. There were at least 6 employees and 6 - 8... More

Good cafe food complete with child menu. Fun atmosphere and the best feature was the play area in the back that kept our party's four toddlers entertained while we waited for the food. They even played music and gave anyone who did the "Twist" 10% off their meal :)

I enjoyed having lunch here! Lively music playing, what a creative mind the owner had! Wish I had a Storiebook Cafe in MY neighborhood! We really enjoyed it. It was a bookstore, too! I LOVED IT!!!

I read about Storiebook on Trip Advisor. How could a former instructor of Children's Literature pass this up? Storie greeted us and told us about the cafe. She also warned us about the uneven floors, the result of this space once having been a flooring store. Flooring samples still make up the floor. This is a whimsical space, full of... More

This place is great for lunch in Glen Rose. This place is definitely one of a kind. The decor is really interesting and awesome. The people who work here are really nice. The place is called Storie book cafe, because the owner's name is Storie, not because they can't spell or anything like that. The food tastes great. I had... More

Food was average at best. Soup was horrible. They were out of a lot of things on their menu. So slow. We helped ourselves to seat ourselves, grabbed our own menus, waited to pay and when we asked of we could pay the waitress said "wait up there until we get time to help you". HORRIBLE all around. Can't believe... More
