Contemporary American
The origin of The Story Café emerged from the mantra “There is a story in everything”
So in 2018 when we fell upon a 30 year old warehouse, we saw the potential to transform the abandoned space into a warm, hospitable, unique eatery. Through consistent innovation, research and dedication we managed to blend our affinity for coffee, music, food and antique into a ambient mélange of vintage and nostalgia. Today, we proudly present our eatery to newcomers and are considered a staple in the Richmond community!

We are excited to share with you that our restaurant has been voted for the OpenTable Diners’ Choice 2023 award for multiple categories in Vancouver! This prestigious award is a testament to our commitment to providing exceptional dining experiences and top-notch service to our customers.

    Food was great. Service a little slow but we were a group of six and the restaurant was very busy. Will definitely go back though.

    With high expectations due to other reviews, Story Cafe is definitely worth a visit. First of all, the decor creates a wonderful atmosphere for gatherings with friends. It’s not the kind of high-class place where you feel you have to eat quietly, but rather a relaxed setting with plenty to discover. The food is great, especially the starters. The oysters are fresh, large, and among the cleanest I've had. The bacon jam is fantastic, with onions, bacon, strawberries, and all the ingredients blending together to bring a lot of flavor. However, compared to the exciting starters, I felt a little disappointed with the main course. My lobster gnocchi was good, but it was too salty, and the lobster could have been grilled a bit longer as it was slightly undercooked. I did enjoy my wife’s duck confit, but she thought the duck had a slightly off taste. Additionally, the dish came with both gnocchi and salad, and the sauce wasn't thick enough for the gnocchi compared to my dish. The tiramisu was nice but not outstanding; I've had better in other places. Overall, my experience at Story Cafe was good, and it is a place I would return to and recommend to others.

    Love Story Cafe! We brought our wine-and-food loving out-of-town family to Story Cafe on a Tuesday night hoping they'd like it, and everyone loved it, said they'll be back again!! We had wine (half off), shared appetizers, main course and dessert. Everything was fantastic. There was no live music the night we attended, but can't wait to return and experience it. The fact that it was as busy as it was on a Tuesday night, and despite its quirky location, speaks to how great it is. Would highly recommend!

    Food was not as good as expected. Everything was mediocre. Had pasta with clams & liver pâté was not good, the ingredients didn’t work well together. Husband had beef short ribs - tasted so so & wasn’t an entree - only came with mushrooms.
