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!

Good food and fair prices, but most importantly, there is an entire kid section that can entertain small children with toys, books, and more.
