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.

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...More
