We initially went in to grab some coffee, but the menu looked good, so we had lunch - a salad and a sandwich. The place is full of books, all of which are for sale. A centerpiece was a "tree" made of books - very unique. The atmosphere of books, combined with the friendly staff, made for an enjoyable break... More

This restaurant was adorable! Our little people (4 and 2) could have stayed here all day playing with the mish mash of toys, dress ups and books. That was good, because the service is a wee bit slow. The food was yummy and we will definitely return. Such a different kind of place ---kudos to the owners!

My wife at the Reuben sandwich and said it was really delicious. Cute atmosphere. The owners have really done a nice job decorating the place. Service was wonderful.

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.
