The Cafe

Give your appetite the happy ending it deserves by visiting The Story Museum café.

Our cafe is open for both museum visitors and passers-by and we are offering a take away service for those who wish to eat outside in our courtyard. Entry to the cafe is via the main gates to the museum on Pembroke Street. Scroll down for opening hours.

With a delicious menu of freshly-prepared, homemade dishes, our independent café serves food to suit all ages and appetites, with gluten-free and vegan options always available.

Our friendly café team are committed to supporting local suppliers and using fair-trade and free range ingredients.

Whether you're a very hungry caterpillar or a tiger looking for some tea, our cosy café will offer you a warm welcome!
