Contemporary American
The Story Café started with an idea that “there is a story in everything." We love coffee, music, food, and anything that can create or bring back a story such as an antique, vintage camera or a memorable music record. So in 2018, we began to think of an idea which would combine all the elements of things we loves into one restaurant.

We believe that nothing is useless. Therefore, as far as your eyes can see, all the decorations have their own stories and tales, they have been handpicked and gathered from all over BC. We hope you will feel like you are in a different century and a different time where the arts would thrive and generate amazing stories as you dine and enjoy the antique décor.

Throughout the week we have music nights that are dedicated to showcasing different musical genres and different talented musicians to give you entertainment and give back to the community in our own way.

The Story café invites you to join us and become part of our story.

    The food was absolutely delicious, we had the chicken liver pâté and is was silky smooth. The gnocchi with lobster and the house risotto with shrimp and scallops did not disappoint. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

    Great place. I visit often this place in small groups but today I made reservations for 6 and they forced us to pay 18% more for service. I really appreciate restaurants employees for their hard work and adding a great TIP for the service is a MUST for me. Never less then 20%. But today being forced to pay whit out the option of choosing the amount I wanted to add for tip was very disappointed and disrespectful from my point of view. 👎👎👎

    We had a delicious dinner at The Story Cafe. My girlfriend had the Vongole Pasta (clams & linguine), my son a burger & I had the Beef Pappardelle. We all finished our entire meal. The starter was the Bacon Jam and was Devine. The atmosphere was pleasant and low key for a Saturday night. We had a late reservation at 8:30 so that may be why. The decor is wicked cool and plenty to look at while waiting or dining. I highly recommend trying this place even though the area itself is rather drab.

    Great little out of the way place. We were here for a late night snack after a late flight into Vancouver. Had the charcuterie for two. Very tasty. Nice selection. Waitress recommended coming back for breakfast the next morning and she was right. Lots of breakfast selection and it was delicious!! Had the Benny on English muffins yummm. Potatoes were absolutely delicious also. Definitely a place to visit. Lineup wasn’t too bad

    It was our first time here, and the experience was really nice. Dinner menu was quite yummy, but appetizer portions were a little small. Their service was very friendly, and they even had live music, which was a nice touch although a little too loud as it drowned out the dinner conversations. Overall, it was a very nice evening with friends! Would definitely come back to try more.

    Charming hostess and gorgeous food, an excellent find in an otherwise dismal area. Although we booked for a later time, they kindly fitted us in earlier for happy hour. Only slight disappointment was that, despite the name, there was no bar, but they were happy for us to sit at a table and have a drink.

    The crab cakes were very disappointing. Dry and chewy. I didn’t order the entrees like I did last time which were really good. Instead we ordered a bunch of appetizers. Wasn’t too impressed.

    Food & ambience was kind of expected, but service was not consistent. It took us 20 minutes to flag down a waitress just to TAKE our order, tables with people who got seated AFTER us were served and attended to first.. that was pretty disappointing. Unsure if I will be back with the way we were treated, we felt uncomfortable.

    Great tasting food and cool ambiance !! Let’s get that straight. But service was horrible and I’ve never seen such expensive drinks! The happy hour food menu was priced alright but not the best for happy hour in our experience of other places. A bottle of $16 Henkel Prosecco was $45 there!!!! I’ve seen a lot of drink menus and I’ve never seen a markup THAT high before haha! It was laughable. For service, we literally had to ask our server EVERY time we needed her, including taking our order. It’s not a very big place and lots of people left after we sat down, so I didn’t understand the lack of service. Even when she’d walk by, she wouldn’t give eye contact so I couldn’t wave her over. The service was the most frustrating part but the food was amazing!

    Celebrated our 2 friends birthdays and the place was busy. I recommend getting reservations. The staff was friendly and attentive. They have quite a wide range of delicious entrees. I had the spicy chicken burger with fries and latte. I asked on the reservation comment using open table if we could have a slice of cake and candle for the celebrants and they accommodated my requests. The ambience and decor was top notch and overall the value for the food and drinks that we spent was well worth it. I’d definitely recommend this restaurant for their delicious food and top notch service. Kudos to our server for being so friendly and accomodating.
