I ordered a breakfast and the never delivered two drinks for us. I rang them multiple times and they never answered. Bad service

A friendly and relaxed atmosphere from the moment you entered . The staff couldn't have been nicer. They were all so cheerful and attentive. There was one member of staff in particular called Nicole. She was friendly welcoming. She is an asset to the cafe....She truly made our day. The food was also fantastic, big portions and a menu to suit everyone. Nothing was a bother to the guys. Will definitely be returning :)More

We were in Limerick for a day and found this café in the city centre... What caught our attention was that the food portions looked big and delicious, and the personnel looked happy. In these times, it's really necessary to share a smile or make...a joke, and you definitely see that in the Story Cafe Limerick, and not everywhere else unfortunately. We just had Irish breakfast, omelettes and coffee, all tasty and good portions.More

Sat down to order milkshakes and then realised none of the staff are wearing masks - just breathing all over the food and coffees. Very pre-COVID. I went elsewhere.

I went to this little cafe with my husband and son this morning and I have to say it was fabulous. As soon as you walk in the door you feel so welcome from the friendly greetings to the terrific atmosphere. The staff are so...friendly and helpful. The food is beautiful and fresh. I loved the little touch of giving me a rose for International Women's Day, that was so thoughtful. Well done guys to your lovely cafe and next time we are in Limerick, we will be popping in!!More

We stopped off for a quick coffee and sweet treat last Saturday evening. We didn’t have very high expectations of the cafe but we were pleasantly surprised. I cannot comment on the food as we didn’t eat but they have an extensive menu with a...wide range of food to choose from at very reasonable prices. However the food being served to other customers looked delicious. It’s a typical style cafe, comfortable and conveniently located. The lady that served us was so genuinely friendly. As we were leaving herself and the chef behind the counter both thanked us and wished us a nice evening. It’s the little things and gestures like that that make a place and make people want to return. Well done Story cafe ⭐️⭐️⭐️More

This cafe is so cute. Its decorated really minimal but in a very nice way! I loved that they had a shelf filled with books that you can take and read while you have a coffee. They also have a wall filled with beautiful art...drawing that they sell. The money is donated to local homeless charities! The food is brilliant. I ordered the Classic BLT Sandwich and a Diet Coke. The sandwich was amazing! The honey-mustard dressing they used for the side salad was so delicious. I'll definitely be back for another sandwich soon! I order a hot chocolate to-go on my way out and that was also absolutely delicious! Definitely a place to visit if you're looking for a quieter part of the city centre but still want great food.More

Came for lunch with my mom and had a beautiful and inexpensive meal! The atmosphere is lovely and cheerful and the staff are so friendly and warm, making it a really great place to go for breakfast or lunch :D The menu has something for...everyone and the food is delicious! It's only two minutes from the main shopping street so it's super convenient!More

Went here for lunch with my partner and really enjoyed it. I had a club sandwich, my partner had a cajun chicken wrap, and we had cappuccinos. Very tasty. And not too costly either. Staff are very friendly
