Welcome to The Story Cafe - Eatery & Bar!
The History of The Story Cafe…

It’s all from a thought “There is a story in everything” by the owner. He loves music, coffee, brunch, drinks, antiques, vintage records, cameras, phones and more. So in 2018, he had an idea of combining all the elements into a restaurant. We converted a 30 years old warehouse into a new concept restaurant. After two years for all the design, inspections and constructions and finally The Story Cafe came to life and soft opened in March 2020.

We believe that nothing is useless, in fact almost everything in the restaurant has it’s age and we bought them off from their previous owner in lower mainland and want to give them a new life in our restaurant. When you walk into our restaurant, you may think you are in different centuries that would remind you your old memories

At the same time, we are changing the history everyday and creating our own story. We are inviting you to join and be a part of our story.

Amazing food and atmosphere. Price is always great. First time for my three friends but my 5th time coming in.

Service was a little slower. We only had one offer for another round during our meal (empty glasdes, smaller check average lol) plates weren't cleared after appies, I asked for ground pepper but never came, meal was practically over when it did arrive.

Everything else, drinks and food was spot on as usual but just a bit of a wait for things, and since we had limited time to dine because of restrictions, definitely more noticeable.

Will still come back though :)

We sat outside on the patio for lunch. They have plenty of heaters available to keep you warm if the weather is still a bit chilly. The service was very good. Good value for your money. I like that I can get brunch dishes until 3 pm during the week.

During pandemic, safety precautions from restaurant staff was failed in my visit today.
First, waitress wasn’t wear mask properly, she pulled down her mask below her mouth while talking on the phone but I was just standing there. However, inside indoor, she should have mask on all time no matter customer around or not. Second, she had another customer just right beside our table which there was no plexiglass nor 6 feet in between tables which it’s totally unacceptable during pandemic especially cases are up everyday. We want to eat out but at the same time we need everyone follow COVID guidelines.
Generally, food was ok, not exceptional. No harm to try but nothing special visiting again.

Excellent experience that won't disappoint. Warm welcome to the restaurant. Fit us in to the restaurant to the best seats available so my senior mother not feeling cold. Food was awesome. Due to the last day of the lobster fest, we decided to order the Lobster pizza with great choice of seafood ingredients including big prawn, scallops, salmon sashimi and caviar. We also ordered fresh raw oysters which were very fresh. We will definitely come back. Thanks. You are awesome.

Nice service, nice people, good food, beautiful place. Sat at patio for lunch and a bit chilly as the plexiglass blocked the heat . But overall it's great and is recommended. Will definitely go again.

The food was a bit cold. They taste good for the first couple bites and get cold quick. And i think for the price point of all the dishes, they should do something abt it. Either the room temp should be higher or warm up the plates. 🙂

We sat on the patio and had the shrimp pizza and seafood Risotto. Both were excellent !
The ambience inside is cool ! Our servers were very good and attentive. Only the dessert of Lava cake was a bit disappointing.

Overall excellent. Price is a bit high for what you get but hey, things are getting expensive everywhere. Fries could be slightly more crispy but that's my personal taste.

My friend and I visit there regularly but having trouble with Open Table apps for booking the outside area. Only standard table available. It is impossible that the outside aera is booked one month in advance. Please investigate the issue and revert. Thank you.

Great food but the service was very slow. Even on a Tuesday morning. Food is slightly overpriced for a brunch menu. Took 10 minutes for someone to initially come to our table and 25 min for the food to come for 2 people. Looked like there was only 2 servers working and one was also greeting people at the door. Needs better staffing, otherwise cool place. Also difficult to find parking in that area.

Went for Saturday breakfast. Really enjoyed the food. Ambiance was quiet and very enjoyable. We had the Eggs Benedict. Titanic and a lobster special. As well as the pulled pork version. Delicious.
Had Tiramisu and Cheesecake for desert. To die for.
We definitely will return.
