Our community will not be the same without Stone Soup Books and Cafe! Wonderful staff, great books, excellent food, and a comfortable gathering place. We'll miss it very much~

Regrettably, Stone Soup closed on Dec 31 after eight years serving Waynesboro. Selling new and used books in a small store just doesn't make economic sense anymore, and the cafe wasn't enough to make up the difference. We'll miss it.

We were doing a walking tour of Waynesboro VA and just before the last house on the tour we walked by this bookstore/restaurant. We were a bit hungry by then and decided it was a perfect place to stop and have lunch. The place was packed and a bit stuffy so we decided to sit on the back patio which... More

Neat book store/café combination. Stone soup has the best soups in town. They have a great menu with wonderful salads, sandwiches, soups and desserts. My favorite dessert is the chocolate chili pot. You will not be disappointed in Stone Soup. The book store/café is located in a historic home with outdoor seating for the warmer months. They carry gently used... More

Such a quaint place to stop and have a bite (and even glass of wine) and browse the unique book collection.

As a lover of books and a retired teacher, traveling with another retired teacher and a grandaughter, we were pleasantly surprised when we walked in. The name alone was enough to draw us in. We got to sit at the bar and watch the food being prepared, very efficiently by super friendly staff. Everyone who worked there was very friendly... More

We three stopped for a unique eperience away from 'the chains'. We were greeted with friendly wait staff/owners. The cafe was bustling with hungry patrons who wouldn't be disappointed.

They offer healthy home cooked food that's made from scratch. They have gluten free, vegan and vegetarian options as well. Their servers are friendly and prompt and I always get a cookie to go.

Delightful bookstore setting for a delicious lunch. We were so glad that we were intrigued by the charming name enough to give it a try. Lots of interesting books to peruse. We had soup and sandwiches -- all very tasty. Friendly staff.

This is probably one of the most charming cafes in the Shenandoah Valley area. It has so much to offer; local veggies and fruit, unique entrees with a lovely presentation. I love the name, remember the old folk tale about the strangers that came to a small village with nothing but a stone. They charmed local residents into contributing one... More
