Surrounded by books and decor, we had a delicious lunch in Glen Rose! The service was so friendly and the food was well worth it.

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.

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

This is the second time that I have been to the Storiebook cafe. My mom and I took our friends there and they loved it! The service is fast! The drinks are brought out in little mason jars! How cute!
