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.

What else can we say...the quality of food is EXCELLENT. Thank you Jolan for your special attention. We will come back as long as this restaurant keeps the great cook(s). Thank you !
A wonderful little secret gem nestled away from the hustle. Perfect for date night, family night or an evening with a friend. The food was amazing. The service was excellent.
We went for brunch, best Benny's I've had, delicious!!
Latte was just right and the service was friendly and fast.
Definitely on my list to go again.
Really enjoyed the live music! Tables were well separated and screened. Nice food, good portions, a bit expensive. Nice ambiance and decor. Highly recommended!
Everything was delicious! Good portions for dinner. :)
Great service and delicious food
All the servers are very nice very accommodating, for sure going to refer friends and relatives, I myself been there for a couples of tines, very interested to go and listen to live music in the near future!
fabulous fabulous music!!!!
Food price can be lower as the area is more of a warehouse area.
Best cheesecake in town!
Best food and service in Richmond, mussels is the must try dish
our reservation was at 11:45 am. we waited for 20 minutes before the server came to take our order. It took another 15 minutes before our food arrived. at 1:15 pm we were asked to leave because the next seating arrived. I understand the need to turn the table but the service was so slow and bad and late, we didn't even finish our coffee and have to vacate the table.
Service & ambiance are great. Food needs a bit more seasoning.
Make a reservation! Usually busy on weekend with long wait.
Food was good, but service was okay. There were two servers - one of them was very friendly and quick to serve. The other was not helpful at all.
The menu is not vegetarian or vegan friendly. Very few options and server wasn't able to suggest or offer any alternatives. I hope they expand their menu to be more vegetarian and vegan friendly soon.
It is a must to visit if and when in Richmond. Close to the airport by train. Taste of food superb.
Date night with hubby.
Excellent food and ambience but the price of the food is a bit expensive for the location in warehouse area. Almost similar to the price of a French restaurant in downtown. $65 lunch for two people.
Interesting restaurant at a hidden location. Nice decor.
So delicious. Will back again. The signature risotto and pesto prawn pizza are my favourite.
Great little spot in Richmond. Great food and great service. Hope to catch a live performance one of these days!
For the price of the food, definitely not worth it.
nice place to date, the foods are delicate and delicious.
Been here a few times now and every dish is delicious. Great new gem in Richmond!
Great food and service. Definitely need to reserve as it fills up fast.
Food was great. Pochachos appy were a hit. Duck breast was cooked perfectly. Wish we'd have checked whether jazz Wednesday was still a thing during COVID times. We left just as the trio was warming up.
it is a good addition to Richmond, Richmond needs better restaurant other than Chinese.
The location is good, easy parking. You will be the first western restaurant to survive in this town, lol on your next menu, food is not a choice? you have romance, date etc but not for good food
Good food, excellent service and very pretty decors
Nice wine selection, food is awesome, pair with oldies music every Monday night, what else to expect ?
We live the singer on Monday and his voice is beautiful. He sings Chinese and English old songs. The food is very good and good value . The service is always good . Highly recommended!
Best restaurant in Richmond, hands down. Downtown quality dishes and service, but in Richmond!
Service was great, loved the vibe and the food! Will definitely go back.
We originally booked for the patio and it was freezing out, so they kindly offered to move us inside as soon as a table came up which they did.
The food was excellent. There was a great selection to choose from and the value, the presentation etc. was fabulous.
We will definitely go back again!
Great food and service! Had a great surprise birthday for my husband!
Venue: Quiet, charming and simple.
Food: Aesthetic and delicious.
Service: Prompt, but minimal.
Food was really good and the atmosphere was very nice. First time there and we didnt know what to order and the server's recommendations was on point!
It has a combination of music, good food, unique decor. This creates a great atmosphere, not to mention the outdoor extension.
Food were great ! But the service need to improve a lot
So far so good.
Why need to set minimum 50 characters ?
Good means everything.
6 of us were there on Sunday nite for drinks, snacks , n desserts. Overall, the drinks n food were good. Our friends would like to go back for dinner. A bit disappointed when we found out they don’t music on Sundays. Servers were keen n helpful too！
