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.

Took my daughter there to celebrate her 13th birthday on Saturday. She enjoyed the calamari, seafood linguine and strawberry cheesecake! They made her feel very special at the end by surprising her with an extra dessert with lit candles. All for a 13 yr old! Lovely touch by the restaurant. Servers were lovely.

I am sure we will be back again. My partner wasn’t feeling well before the meal arrived. They were very accommodating and we pack our dinner home. The waitress definitely went above and beyond to ensure we get our condiments. Thank you for the great service!

Our go to eatery for non Asian cuisine in Richmond. Best bennies in the area. Don’t forget about the carbonara and the mushroom burger. Pizzas are good too! This place is also complete with a great drink list and pastry selection. We come here for brunch and dinner, with kids and without. Prior to the pandemic, LIVE music nights provides a great hangout with friends!

The Story Cafe was amazing! The food was phenomenal, and the service was amazing. Jovan our server was kinda, friendly and wonderful. I highly recommend the Prawn & Scallops, the curry sauce is too good to pass up. We also had the Linguine Carbonara and the Fried Chicken Burger, best burger we have ever had. They even gave us a complimentary cheesecake as we were celebrating our anniversary. Thank you for making us feel special, we will be back to try the rest of the menu :)

Service was great, food was good. Big portions and unlimited coffee. I gave 4/5 for food because I got the homemade scone benny’s and the scone wasn’t my favourite. It crumbled too much and was a bit dry. The eggs and taste of everything else was good! Chicken French toast was good but wish the chicken wasn’t breast but a darker meat. Plus a thicker bread. Flavours were good though!

Second time to the Story Cafe and it didn’t disappoint.
The pistachio croissant was delicious. Ordered the salmon burger and was pleasantly surprised to find out it was a salmon filet and not a pattie.

I am so happy I went and will absolutely be back. The service was pleasantly kind, polite, and accurate. The food was superb. I had their beef wellington and it was more than I could have expected. We went for my boyfriend's birthday, which I mentioned in my reservation, and they gave us a delicious cheesecake on the house.

There was a performer there as well which really added to the experience.

I wish I lived closer but I will absolutely be back!

Went during happy hour (from 3pm).. enjoyed the steak bites (lightly breaded and fried beef though I would prefer a tangier/less sweet honey mustard sauce) and pochachos (potato chips ala loaded nachos) with a beer (20% off alcohol).
