Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Called in casually to the Story. Had a fantastic mushroom omlette with a coffee and a home baked scone after. All served with great gusto. A real friendly neighbourhood style of place. Would definitely call again. Go hana mhaith ar fad.

Went here with a partner for breakfast for the first time recently. Got an immediate friendly welcome from staff, lots to choose from on their breakfast menu and prices were good value. Partner said it was the best Irish breakfast he has had in a...long time and I can highly recommend their special omelette! Only note: Be hungry as the portions are great and the food is delicious that you won’t want to leave any leftovers! Will definitely recommend and return too! Side note bonus: coffee is good too 👍More

popped in today for breakfast in this busy little cafe. Vedran runs an amazing cafe. The warmth of his welcome and friendliness blew us away. I can't remember the last time I got this level of service which was genuine and warm and full of...charm. The food was excellent and very fair prices to. For fair of repeating myself quite simple the warmest and friendliest service I can ever remember receiving.More

I’ve only ever gotten a takeaway/delivery from this place a handful of times and the food is very nice but once my fries came stone cold so barely finished them and most of the times I’ve ordered from here they leave out half the order...so they have a lot to improve onMore

This is such a lovely spot. The staff are so friendly and obliging, the food is great and it's central too. The only problem is getting a seat - it's too popular!

Although the cafe is very nice, food good and staff friendly I would not visit this cafe again. They are completely ignoring all the Covid rules. None of the staff were wearing masks, including the staff doing the cooking which is located in the seating...area. On arrival no one asked to see our vaccine pass and no-one asked us to fill in a contact address. I showed my Caine pass and no proper check was done on it and my partner was not asked to show theirs. I asked the waitress why they weren't following the Covid rules and she asked what were these. When I mentioned masks she said that she was exempt.More

Had lunch there on my last trip and enjoyed it ! It got the Irish breakfast in a crepe and it was a nice surprise (I'm pretty used to the traditional breakfast, I was curious to try it in a new way) : great taste,...generous size... The service was good too. A nice moment, thank you :)More

Went to story cafe this morning for brunch. We wanted something that wasn't exactly on the menu - absolutely no problem at all!! The food was delicious and extremely good value for money. However the best thing about the visit was the staff. Mostly, our...waiter, Jack! He was so nice and accommodating. Went above and beyond. Thank you Jack!More

I've been here a handful of times and always think of the Story Café as a great go-to lunch spot in Limerick city! The staff is attentive and friendly and the owner is always exceptionally kind. I've tried a few different options and everything has...been great - my recent favourite is the pulled pork wrap! Definitely reccomend this spot for anyone looking for a cute and affordable lunch in Limerick!More

My girlfriend and I, after being around family for several days on end in thanks to a wedding nearby, desperately needed something to wake us up before our journey home. We chanced this cafe and saw it particularly popular and filled and, after looking around...a bit more, settled on this. We’re glad we did though! For the first time in over twenty-four hours we both feel awake and alive! We both ordered the BLT sandwich, an americano and tea. The BLT arrived piping hot to the touch with crisp toasted white bread. The bacon was meaty and thick, the tomatoes plump and hot and the lettuce was nice. There was a complimentary side of small salad with tomato and dressing. I don’t particularly like mayonnaise but I found the amount on the sandwich itself was perfect. Our drinks were also hot. My coffee was strong and slightly bitter. I don’t have milk or sugar in my coffee and it was a great accompaniment and the tea was good too. On top of all this the service was great. Prompt and friendly, no small feat considering how busy they were. We will happily return if life finds us back in Limerick!More

I came in on the 24th of august and my sister and I both ordered wraps. Hers came as described on the menu. My wrap was missing avocado and peppers. The wrap also contained baked beans. On the menu it just said Ben’s. Bad I...know they were baked beans with sauce I would have ordered them. The waitress didn’t write down our order. I asked for no egg in my wrap and she confirmed. However when my wrap arrived there was egg on it 2/10 will not be going back againMore
