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.

Ordered lobster bisque, calamari, beef wellington, seafood linguine, and chocolate cake. Besides lobster bisque and choco cake, the other dishes lacked seasoning. The tomato sauce for the calamari and pasta were not as great as we hope for. Beef was rather well done and heat was not even out. This is our 4th time trying this restaurant and unfortunately the experience was rather disappointing. The ambience was definitely nice and was the best part of the meal.

It was my husband’s birthday and we wanted to try somewhere new. We’d noticed Story Cafe always had a line up so knew it would be good. Booked a table to make sure we could get in. We shared the beet salad, truffle fries, yam fries and scallops and prawns in yellow curry. Everything was delicious, our server was lovely. We finished off with lava cake and cheesecake and again it was great. Really recommend this place.

Great little place for a date or a few friends gathering, love the decorations and the food was exceptional, similar pricing to a typical Earls, Moxies or Cactus, however the portion is a bit smaller, but the taste is better!

Not as noisy compared to most of those restaurant mentioned above, good for chatting and conversation. Highly recommended

Food and environment was awesome. They are pretty busy, had to wait a bit before we were seated. The waitress walked by us 4 times and didn't greet us. Marked birthday as occasion and did not get any bd cake, when we saw the other table received it. But overall the food was delicious could improve on service.

Beautiful patio, nice and quiet and friendly staff. We had the bacon jam, risotto, and pappardelle and it was all so delicious. Risotto portion size was slightly small. The tiramisu and creme brûlée were also amazing.

Everything was wonderful! We were greeted warmly by the hostess and seated right away. My mojito was beautifully muddled and perfectly made. The patio has a nice ambiance with plenty of heaters if needed. The lobster gnocchi was amazing. A whole lobster tail and prawns with gnocchi in a pesto cream sauce was beautifully presented with the lobster tail on top. I wish I took a picture! My husband was also very happy with his medium rare ribeye. We finished off the evening with a delicious creme brûlée and perfectly brewed americano. We will return!!!
