This quaint restaurant is amazing. The quality is great, the meal sizes are just right and the desserts are scrumptious. So unexpected from a small town in the middle of nowhere.

Stopped for lunch while driving through and it was perfect. Food and service were top notch. They have a kids menu - always a plus. My Reuben was fantastic!

This is a great place to grab a bite to eat while in Glen Rose. Kid friendly, good food without being too fancy, and a fun decor.

The Storiebook Café is a great place to enjoy lunch with friends. Recently ate lunch there while shopping on the Glenrose Square. It was a wonderful quaint cute little café with great atmosphere and great food. Highly recommend it.

Great atmosphere, best chicken salad sandwich and a very tasty and unique Rueben pasta salad. Desserts are great. Fun play area for small kids, and an endless supply of books to browse if you have time.

Very adorable idea. Delicious food (sandwiches and wraps. Books, games, etc. Only improvement would be service. Never checked on after food was brought and no refills were offered. But otherwise fantastic lunch spot

Enjoyed lunch driving through Glen Rose. The atmosphere worth a visit. And 5 stars. I had half chicken salad on sourdough with rueben soup. My husband had triple club sandwich. Both very good. We enjoyed browsing & smiling @ signs like "bad decisions make good stories".
