I had chicken salad with croissant -- the croissant is very flaky and buttery. My husband had grilled cheese, and he said it was also very good. The best part was the dessert -- we had the best piece of buttermilk pie.

I visited this wonderful “one of a kind” cafe after hearing about it from several friends. Their menu has choice delights such as chicken salad, veggie wraps, and homemade soups. The decor is very entertaining - children will LOVE visiting the Storybook Cafe!
